Persimmon Hill Farm is a real berry, fruit and mushroom farm in the scenic Table Rock Lake country of Southwest Missouri. The farm began several decades ago when we fulfilled our dream of starting a berry farm that would also be a destination, where families could come for a farm experience as well as great berries and fruits. Families could tour the fields, pick and sample fresh berries right from the bushes, dine on hot muffins and cobblers, and taste the dozens of unique gourmet products made right on our farm. The Persimmon Hill Farm concept was never about being the biggest; it was always about quality and especially about the taste.
We started in 1982, turning vacant fields spotted with Persimmon trees into two acres of blueberries, with hives of honeybees for pollination. We added additional fields of blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, gooseberries, plums and more, with the goal of providing top quality berries and an enjoyable family experience near the then-small tourism town of Branson, Missouri. The concept worked and tourists began coming to our neatly maintained you-pick farm, where the blueberries hang like clusters of grapes from seven-foot tall bushes and the blackberries are huge on the thornless brambles in neatly trimmed rows. The addition of log-grown shiitake mushrooms began a new gourmet product line, from fresh to dried mushrooms.
Persimmon Hill Farm was started and is still owned and operated by our family. It remains a labor of love for gourmet quality, delicious and intensely flavorful foods that we love to share with you, your families and friends.
