Fifth Generation Family Farm
Specializing in locally grown vegetables, fruits & Christmas trees as well as homemade jams & jellies.
Welcome to www.mintersfarm.com, the official website for Minter’s Farm and Inman Farm Heritage Days. The farm is located only 6 miles from downtown Fayetteville, 12 miles from Senoia and 16 miles from Peachtree City.
As the sandhill cranes fly overhead, we realize that the winter months are behind us. We haven’t cleared the dreaded threat of last frost… Mother Nature always does have her own plans for us. The last few weeks have kept us busy with planting and pruning. A beautiful crop of Virginia Pines were put in the muddy ground as well and tons and tons of Vidalia-type sweet onions as well as red onions.
But our biggest job thus far has been pruning. While we’re no where near finished, we have pruned all of our blackberry vines, every single muscadine vine (and there are hundreds) and are working on the peach trees now. There are many chores lined up for us still: need to basal prune the Christmas trees, get the high tunnels prepped for tomato planting, fertilize everything, etc.. The list will never end. Many people think we take a luxurious break during the winter months. Our winter months prove to be some of our busiest times. But we are pulling through and getting ready for the 2018 growing season.
Minter’s Farm is taking a new-ish route this year. We are focusing more on the at-farm experience. While we will still participate in a couple of markets in the area this year, our goal is to steer customers into coming out to the farm for their needs. We will open up the Market Store (on the Inman Farm Heritage Days showgrounds) for customers to come and purchase the goods we will have for sale. Check our Facebook page to stay up-to-date with what we have available!
Rick is delighted to tell everyone he is doing a periodic blog about his various restoration projects – projects varying between trucks to car to tractors to engines. Check out Rick’s Rusty Relics page to keep up with what he has going on.
