Lineberger's Maple Springs Farm
This farm has been in the Lineberger family since 1928, just before the Great Depression, when it was owned by Graham Lewis and Sarah Ann Lineberger. Back then, the farm was counted on to provide produce for the growing Lineberger family. When they passed on, Ethan's grandfather, Harold Lineberger, moved back to the farm. He used the $350 he made from his first strawberry crop to buy a ring for Patsy Eaker...
Our main crops are strawberries, blackberries, peaches, and pumpkins. We also grow muscadines, Concord grapes, cucumbers, tomatoes, eggplant, watermelon, cantaloupes, peppers, greens, sunflowers. Our newest addition is elderberries. In the fall, we grow over 100 different varieties of pumpkins, gourds, and fall decorations. The farm is crowded with young families taking hay rides and playing on the playgrounds. It seems like fall is everyone's favorite time of the year!
"This farm has been in our family since 1928. My great-grandfather was paying off the mortgage all through the Great Depression. In 1955, my grandfather planted his first patch of strawberries and made $350. He used that money to buy a ring and proposed to Patsy Eaker. That was our first strawberry crop and the crop we are still most famous for."
