It's great to see Perkins Orchard continue to grow after so many years. They have plenty of fresh produce and nice fruits. They've added meats to their inventory as well. The tomatoes were huge. We picked up a good size watermelon to gift my parents.

I went for the first time today, because my grandfather called from West Virginia requesting some fresh peaches to make some peach cobblers and dumplings. I left with a whole bag of peaches, mangos & plums as the employee working today made sure my bag was absolutely full and then was given corn as a freebie! The atmosphere is very welcoming, and they have many options to choose from as far as fresh produce! Of course I had to taste one of the peaches, and they’re absolutely amazing! Sweet and juicy!! Currently on the way to WV with my peaches in tote, to enjoy the best peach cobbler/dumplings! Please don’t miss visiting this hidden gem!

Couldn’t recommend this place more! Recently moved to the area and Donovan (the owner) was so kind and welcoming!! He introduced me to his beautiful farm and even let me know of some amazing deals that were going on. So much amazing history with this place. It’s very clear he loves his business and customers. I greatly appreciate owners going out of the way to make the customer feel welcomed and informed. This establishment will be my new go to place for fresh produce and local goods. Thanks you Donovan! You earned a customer for life!

I went to Perkins Orchard yesterday and received a very generous deal, indeed. They offer a $25.00 bag of items, and also give you an extra item if you buy the $25.00 bag. Here is what the very friendly man put in my bag … 5 gorgeous tomatoes, 4 cucumbers, 5 squash, and 6 peaches! I don’t know how he fit it all in the bag. For my extra item, he handed me a full bag of Russet potatoes. I had to post this because I’m so impressed. Perkins Orchard is in Durham on Barbee Rd. So, I’m making another peach cobbler today, thickening potatoes with cornbread in honor of Cooking with Brenda Gantt, and of course, my favorite thing this summer … tomatoes, cucumbers, and Vidalia onions marinated in apple cider vinegar, smaller amounts of cold water and olive oil, salt and pepper. 😆😋🍑🥒🍅🧅🥔

I really enjoyed Perkins Orchard!!! Fruit is so fresh and the Turkey bbq was amazing. First time visiting and learned the history of Perkins. I will be returning to get more fruit and veggies. Highly recommend, and it’s black owned which is a plus! 🤎

This place is awesome. I’m so upset if didn’t know about this place earlier. I love shopping local and have been wanting to get my produce locally instead of from a grocery store. This place exceeded my expectations. I love the $25 fill up your own bag thing they do. The employee was very kind, everything was laid out extremely neat, the produce was beautiful, the little store was adorable, and I got a free pineapple! I love this place, and will absolutely be coming weekly.

I have always driven by this place on my way to somewhere else and man, have I been doing myself a disservice. It was amazing. The owner is wonderful and has a great intro for newbies. The $25 fill-the-bag deal is amazing and they have a decent selection of locally raised meats.

Donovan gives a great intro for new visitors. There's a great selection of fresh fruits and veggies that are in season. The $25 bag is a great buy! Fit as much as you can and you're also given a free item. I bought a sauce and received a jug of cherry cider with my $25 bag (very tasty). I'll definitely be back!

I discovered Perkins 2 years ago and have been going back ever since to get the 99.00 cart full of the coolest pumpkins/gourds ever! You also get a full bag of veggies and a canned item... I put up my Fall and Halloween decorations early and so happy to shop local. I deeply respect Donovan for how he has kept the tradition up and keeps things running smoothly. It is not small task to run a small business and keep everything flowing. Ignore the negative reviews - they are completely not correct and over hyped. Lets just be kind and support local... there are certainly enough big box stores. I've turned a few people on to Perkins and will continue to do so... My primary vocation is Director of Quality, Engineering and Release. I have 100's of customers... I can spot good quality and customer service miles away.. I can also identify poor service... there is zero evidence of any poor service.. keep going gang.. you bring back many nostalgic memories of all the farm stands in New England and are the only one that takes me right back home.. Forever customer, Marjie

What an absolutely amazing place. There $25 bag deal is fantastic. You get such a better deal than the farmers market and the store. We will definitely be getting our produce from here from now on. The staff were very friendly and kind.
