Peaches, Tomatoes, and Other Vegetables
The U-Pick Strawberry field is open and READY. Please call 205-280-0242 for hours and days of operation. We will be expanding Strawberry Field in 2015.
A variety of tomatoes, including slicers, green tomatoes, heirlooms, romas and grape tomatoes, are grown at J. Durbin Farms. Planting tomatoes at different intervals during the season gives J. Durbin Farms the opportunity to harvest tomatoes June thru November.

Mr. Jimmy in 3 year old peach orchard of Bounty variety. With all chill hours(dormancy) satisfied, trees have had a tight bud break which shows itself as a tree with most all blooms open at once.
