Congratulations North Star Windows & Doors!

Big Changes to Talbotville Berry Farm!
On October 31, 2016 the current Talbotville Berry Farm produce stand, in operation since 1969, will close its doors for the last time. On November 25 a new market with a new vision will open in its place.
Gerry and Shirley Simpson currently operate the produce stand and farm originally started by Shirley’s parents Peter and Mary Oostvogels. The pair work to keep the family dream alive.
Expanding on their dream they sell home-grown produce, preserves and baked goods, support other local growers and producers, host school field trips, and run Fun Fall Family Weekends that include a corn maze (haunted after dark), and wagon rides during the month of October.
