Food holds our heritage and varieties of berries are as vast and varied as breeds of dogs, and each variety of berry we grow is chosen for its positive contribution to the farm. πŸ₯°
Nationwide, there are about half a dozen public berry breeders. The University of Arkansas fruit breeding program is a staple in the berry farming community, and developed all of the Native American-named varieties, including Chickasaw. Advances in the breeding program have prioritized varieties that are thornless and firmer fruited. 🫐
Chickasaw was never commercially expanded due to its thorny canes and large fruits, and thus plant supply was replaced by newer varieties. Farmer Chuck connected with breeders through the North America Raspberry and Blackberry Association to propagate this variety for us. We love Chickasaw for its eye-popping berry size, amazing flavor, and its ripening dates. While most blackberries have a three week season to ripen, Chickasaw blackberries ripen over the course of six weeks, thus extending their season. As far as we know, we are the only farmers who grow delicious Chickasaw blackberries! πŸ§‘β€πŸŒΎπŸ«Ά

πŸ’ͺ Meet Angel Worton, Warehouse Manager extraordinaire! 
Angel grew up in Hampton, Virginia, and has worked at Agriberry Farm for two and half years. In addition to managing the massive puzzle that is the warehouse, they have also worked in the kitchen making jam, sold fruit at markets, and driven fruit deliveries around in our berry buses! Let's get to know Angel some more...
πŸ§‘β€πŸŒΎ What’s your favorite part of about your job at Agriberry Fam?
Our strong and collaborative team, access to fresh fruit (also sharing with my friends and family) , and my beautiful daily commute!
πŸ–€ What’s your favorite fruit to eat and why?
Hard to say just one! Blackberries have always been a favorite since childhood, and you can't beat one of Chuck's sugar cube melons!
πŸ‘ Which fruit do you identify with?
A yellow nectarine! Sweet but also tart, and usually late to the game. When I'm given enough time and patience, I can soften up to be a delight! 
🧢 What do you spend your time doing outside of work?
Crafting, spending time with friends, and laying in my hammock. I also love to camp and have an obsession with learning skills in bushcraft/outdoor survival.
πŸ₯Ž What’s an unknown fact about yourself?
I played softball for 9 years and nearly went to college for it!

Did you know that fruits can be a beneficial addition to your dog’s diet? 
Not only are they delicious, but they also offer nutritional benefits. Fruits like apples, strawberries, and blueberries are a great source of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.
Apples provide fiber for digestion, strawberries boost the immune system, and blueberries protect cells from damage. When giving fruits to your dog, remember to remove any seeds or pits and consult with your vet for proper portion sizes.
Give your furry friend a fruity delight and watch them enjoy the health benefits. 🐾🍏 #doggo #farmersmarket #berries #fruit y
