Place orders for Extension’s Fall Fruit Sale by Nov. 3

“Fall is the perfect time to plant fruit trees, so naturally it’s time for the annual Fall Fruit Plant Sale Fundraiser with the Pike County Extension Office,” says Pike extension agent Brooklyn Wassel.
The Fall Fruit Sale helps support local agriculture and natural resources programming efforts, enhance food security and support a local, Pike County plant nursery.

All proceeds from the fundraiser help benefit the Pike County Extension program, including but not limited to program supplies, materials and equipment.

“With benefits like that, participating in the sale is an easy choice. This year there are seven different plants to choose from: blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, pears, muscadines, figs, and plums,” she said.

“Each plant has different varieties to choose from so you can decide what flavor, season, and mix is the right addition to your home.”

The blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, muscadines and figs are all one-gallon plants offered for $10 per plant. The pears and plums are five-gallon plants offered for $25 per plant.

All orders must be placed and payment made by Nov. 3 to the Extensions Office by calling 770-567-2010, emailing or swinging by the office at 74 Gwyn Street in Zebulon.

Plants will be available for pick up Nov. 9 from 4 to 6 p.m. at the Pike County Extension office.

“Add fruit to your family’s table by planting your very own fruit plants this fall while also supporting local opportunities at the same time,” said Wassel.
