Located on the historic Lampe Homestead in the beautiful Carson Valley, our farm is less than 30 minutes from Lake Tahoe and Carson City, Nevada.  We purchased the property in 2002 and began restoration to preserve it for future generations - ours and yours.  Today, as you visit our farm, you can see and feel the history of this lovely place, while creating memories that will last a lifetime.

Our farm is a busy place - growing luscious blackberries and raspberries for sale on the farm as well as to restaurants.  We also provide venues for special occasions like weddings, family reunions, and corporate events.  Spacious lawns and flower beds provide a beautiful backdrop for a variety of events – country chic at its best.   

Recent & Upcoming Events:

The Nevada Museums and History Board approved our property to be listed in the Nevada Register of Historic Places March 12, 2018. You can view the nomination document here providing 60 pages of history of the Lampe family ranch beginning with the purchase in 1867 and giving lots of detail about the 14 original structures we continue to maintain. Our family is committed to preserving this history and the property and is thankful to all of our customers who purchase berries and host an event all going towards funding our work.

A guide on maintenance of berry plants is now available to help all of you growing raspberries and blackberries. Jack authored this guide working with UNR Desert Farming initiative. See discussion in the "Berries" Tab.

Jack is giving a presentation on Berry Production at Rail City Garden Center in Sparks Saturday March 10, 2018.

The Berry Farm has been filmed by TV producers in 2015. A film crew spent the morning filming for "Outdoor Nevada" a PBS program hosted by John Burke. The video was released in August 2016 (see above).

In April 2017, Mountain Resort TV visited the farm and made three segments they released in May. Their segments included the following: the Berry Farm (growing berries), Bees (the role they play on the farm), and the Farm Life (living and farming in Carson Valley).

Antiques: We will continue to have Antique Barn Sales at the farm occasionally. We have not yet scheduled our next Barn Sale, so check in from time to time to get the date of our next one. Also you can join our Contact List and we will notify you.

Weddings & Events: We are fully booked for 2019 but we are taking reservations for 2020. We offer our venue for up to ten weddings per year. Check out our photo album by clicking on our Weddings or Events Tabs above and click on Photos to view the property and past events.

Berries & Berry Products: The 2018 season is here and we are in peak harvest. We are having the biggest harvest ever and expect to have blackberries and raspberries through the end of September. We are currently out of berry jam and essence but hope to be making more soon. We are open 10-6 daily.

Also, please add your name to our Contact List and we'll keep you informed on what is going on at the farm during the off season and when our 2017 harvest begins.
