Important Notice (10/5/13) – The farm is now closed for the season.  We thank all who came and enjoyed the fresh fruit that the farm offered. As a one time special,  we now have pomegranates for sale.  We will be open on this coming Friday for pomegranate sale from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM.  Otherwise call us to make special arrangements (757-442-7287).  Our apples can be found at local Farm Market (Eva) on Rt. 180 West before the turn into Harborton.  Also, Quail Cove (check) will periodically have apples from our fruit farm this fall.

 

We acknowledge the assistance that Mr. Joe Bilger provided with respect to the farm operation for over 15 years. The fruit farm would not have been operating for as long as it has without Joe.   Mr. Bilger was a common sight on the Kubota mower cutting grass and helping customers with their questions.  Recently, Mr. Bilger passed away.  Click for memorial information in remembrance of Joseph J. Bilger.

 

We also acknowledge help from Foster family members and neighbors, especially Don and Jake who jumped in to help with grass cutting. Don also assisted in the spring pruning and fall fruit harvesting.

 

If you have any questions or comments, please call (757-442-7287) or email <fosterjg@esva.net>.

 

Special Notice – The free Youth Sportsfest Event held on October 19 was a success even with the occasional rain. The youth event is a shooting educational experience where safety is number one that is hosted annually by NOAAWIVA Sportsmen, Inc.  Click for further information and photos. 

 

 

General Information

Our Mason Beach Fruit Farm is located on the Eastern Shore of Virginia adjacent to Chesapeake Bay waters being situated on Butcher creek.  Click here for an aerial photo (Highcamera.com) of our farm and surrounding area.  You will enjoy the beautiful park-like surroundings on the Bay side while picking your favorite fruit.  Please check out the local accommodation link below, especially for the towns of Harborton, Pungoteague, Wachapreague, Exmore and Onancock that are close to our farm.  For drinks or snacks, there is the Village General Store in Pungoteague.  The Harborton General Store just before Harborton at the intersection of 180W and Hacksneck Road is now closed.  The farm is accessible by small boat (less than ~18 feet in length) via the Harborton launch site (call or check map and tide schedule).  Also, a fruit gardener link to horticultural information is provided below, as there may be interest. 

Click here to check out our two Ferris mowers purchased from Fairdale Farms, Accomac, VA.  These mowers are used to cut the orchard areas including under the fruit trees.  The Ferris ProCut S mower with the mowing deck out front is great for cutting under the fruit trees.  The Ferris IS 1500Z mower (zero turn) is a fast way to cut in the more open areas.
