We are now currently closed for now, but we will reopen in a few weeks for pumpkin season. We will be posting regular updates on Facebook, so check us out on there! Thank y’all so much for an amazing strawberry and vegetable season this year.
Ogburn Berries and Produce is a family owned strawberry and produce farm. We sell our crops at our Roadside stand located at 13065 Old Stage Road, Willow Spring, NC 27592. We offer seasonally available vegetables and berries that are picked at the height of quality and ripeness each morning. Here in North Carolina we have a long growing season from march until October/November usually and we take full advantage of it to provide a wide variety of vegetables and fruits to our customers. Our vegetable crops include Strawberries, Sweet Corn, Tomatoes, Cantaloupes, Watermelons, Sweet Potatoes, Peppers, Squash, Cabbage, Peas, Cucumbers and many many more!
The grower of all the vine ripened, seasonal fruits and vegetables is Sim Ogburn. He is the fourth generation of Ogburn farmers on this exact same ground. In fact Simeon Lloyd Ogburn, Sim’s great-grandfather, bought the farm and built the house adjacent to the produce stand in the early 1900s. So, to say farming runs in the blood is an understatement, it has become a way of life for many generations in the family over the last 100 years! Throughout the years the farm has seen many changes and crops grown here. Until 2006 Tobacco was the main crop grown here as well as Sweet Potatoes, Soybeans, Oats, Wheat, Rye, Grain Sorghum, and Corn, to name a few, but after graduating from NC State University in 2011 Sim returned to the farm and decided that Strawberries and Vegetables was the future of the farm in this rapidly growing area. In 2014, Sim was awarded the Wake County Agribusiness Council’s Outstanding Young Farmer Award. He is the second Ogburn to be awarded this, the first being his father Tandy.
