About Starberry Farm – “Bob and Sally operated the Just-a-Mere Fruit Farm on Kinney Hill the last season it was open, 1977, and at tempted to buy the property. When they were not successful, neighbor Teed Averill told us to go ahead and order the peach trees for the 1978 season and he’d find a place to put them. He did, the 15 acres where Starberry is now located, a former pasture/hayfield. One to two hundred trees have been planted each year since, including a few apples, apricots, sweet and sour cherries, pears, plums and nectarines as well as about 1500 peaches.
