Fresh from the Farm in Currituck
Posted by Brindley Beach Vacations and Sales | Wednesday, April 27, 2016

Mr. Malco has opened his strawberry patch for picking again. That calls for the annual trek just to the Currituck County side of the Wright Brothers Memorial Bridge. 

This will be the 15th year in a row that we’ve done this and we wouldn’t miss it for all the tea in China, as the saying goes. Fresh picked, the strawberries are so filled with flavor, sweetness and juice that they are like an addictive candy.

There’s no way of knowing what Mr. Malco and his wife will be charging this year, but it’s a sure bet that it’s less than any price in a grocery store or fruit stand and the strawberries are demonstratively better.

Oh—and the best part is he doesn’t weigh you before you begin picking to see how many pints of strawberries didn’t quite make it to the bucket.

Mainland Currituck is still pretty much farm fields, despite sporadic development. The evidence of that is pretty clear too.

Just up the road from the Malco’s are the Newbern’s fields that are planted with tomato, squash, melon, peppers and assorted other veggies. That’s the produce that shows up at Green Acres Farm Market in Duck that the Newberns own.

Bordering on the Newbern’s fields, Sanctuary Vineyards comes next—and yes, John Wright, manager of the winery, makes most of his wine form the grapes grown on the farm.
