Those who call this part of the world home know that Fairhope and the Eastern Shore are very special. It’s an area filled with peace and natural beauty . . . . . water and open land, farms, trees, wildlife. A place graced with tranquility . . . . .and bursting with inspiration and creative energy.
Weeks Bay Plantation is the fulfillment of a dream of Tynes Stringfellow, a local businessman and lifelong resident. He has dreamed of building a plantation – an entertainment farm – open to his neighbors throughout south Alabama and surrounding states, and to everyone who visits here, that will put the best things about this area on display. And the dream is underway . . . . .
The Plantation is currently home to LA Berry Farms, a pick-your-own blueberry farm where you can come enjoy a rejuvenating outdoor experience while nabbing some amazing little-blue-fruit packed with anti-oxidants and touted as one of the top ten healthiest foods we can eat. The berries here are 100% organic, grown with a special mix of organic nutrients proprietary to The Plantation and with no chemical or pesticide use. The results? Some of the sweetest, most delicious blueberries in the south.
There are FIFTEEN varieties to choose from and ALL of the berries grown at the Plantation hold bragging rights to some of the highest BRIX levels in the nation (this is an indicator of the health of the plant and the density of the nutrients in the fruit).
And when you visit to pick some of these delicious organic berries, you get to see what else we have in store for neighbors and visitors in the coming year.
