The Hagios family had a successful blackberry season this year and would like to thank all who helped pick berries. “We had a much better season than last,” said Christy Hagios, owner of The Berry Patch. The Berry Patch is located at the Hagios home, and berry picking has been a tradition with their family for roughly a century. At the end of each season the money from the sales of the blackberries is donated to The Charlotte Food Shelf. This year the Hagios family will be donating $530.
