Merdianville and Hazel Green
Like their neighbor New Market, Meridianville and Hazel Green are situated among pristine fields and orchards just 10 minutes north of downtown Huntsville. Unincorporated communities, their public schools and services are administered by Madison County, but their atmosphere overflows like a strawberry carton with small town neighborliness and hospitality.
Renowned for its agriculture and some of the most fertile soil in the South, Meridianville and Hazel Green are a farmers’ market lover’s dream. Get addicted to pick-your-own strawberries at Brown Farms in the spring. Sample crisp apples and melt-in-your-mouth peaches at Scott’s Orchard in summer. Hayride and pick pumpkins at Tate Farms in the fall. On your way home, drop by Bill’s Honey Farm to grab a giant jar of honey or stop at a roadside stand for berry jam to slather on your biscuits in the winter. The fringe benefits of being neighbors with farmers!
