Wayne Scott was a high school agriculture teacher who dreamed of putting what he taught to practice. Wayne and his wife Mary Lou worked hard for many years and built a very reputable name not only in the strawberry business but also in half runner beans, sweet corn, and – their largest commodity – tomatoes.
They were not only successful in their business but also in their family life. They had five children and multiple grandchildren. Nothing was more important to the Scotts than family, and that continues on to this day.
Son, Steve, and grandsons, Ryan and Cody Scott, have followed in Mr. Scott’s footsteps, growing the farm and maintaining the high standards set over sixty years ago.
We grow four different varieties which are harvested from early July to the end of September. The blueberries are sold at Scott’s Farm Market in Unicoi. We also sell blueberry preserves year-round, and blueberry ice cream when in season, both made with our blueberries.
