Bush-N-Vine Farm
Glide into this grass strip, park at the north end and walk 50 feet on a dirt road to a huge modern log cabin. Inside you'll find the bounty of the farm that abuts the York Airport. Offerings vary by season, but strawberries, peppers, green beans, peaches, tomatoes, potatoes, corn and on and on and on. They make fresh soft serve ice cream flavored with their own fruit and smoothies too. They also sell eggs, milk and ham too. If that isn't enough, stretch your legs on a one mile loop hike through their property past cow pastures, beaver pond & lodge, meadows and their greenhouses. There is also a 10 foot tube slide, sandbox and some things to climb on for the kids. I bring a cooler and load up on produce to make a 'hundred dollar salad' back home that night. In regards to the airport, it has very forgiving approaches at both ends which make the 2600' feet even longer. It slopes up to the north slightly, and the first 200' at the north end are quite bumpy and should be avoided. It is wide, well maintained and friendly. I recommend a flyby to check for any irrigation hoses or vehicles that sometimes transit the field. Contact Ed Currance at 803-448-6008 for permission and questions, he is always friendly, prompt and welcoming anytime I leave a message. Note: watch out for three old cement tie downs that can be obscured by grass near the south end hangers on the east side. Overall, a fantastic forgiving destination for aspiring soft field pilots.
