It’s grape season at Olde Carthage Farm, located north of Carthage on U.S. 15-501, where the Godfrey family tend 150 vines of certified organic muscadine grapes.
You can pick them yourself or grab a ready-to-go package. The purple variety is called Nesbitt, the golden variety is called Triumph — somewhat similar to the scuppernong — and the pink variety is called Summit.
Olde Carthage Farm is open 8:30 a.m.-5 p.m., Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays while the grapes are in season.
