It's almost here! The last long weekend of the summer.  Summer is not over for a few more weeks and neither are the strawberries.  However, in this extended hot and dry weather, they are limping along.  They've been producing berries since mid-June and they appear "tired" ie. dry.  One day of ripening doesn't seem to be enough to redden up the field again.  So----

We will be closed Thursday and Friday.  We'll make a call Friday whether we open Saturday or Monday or even Tuesday.  Please check back here before coming out.  When we open next we want it to be great picking so we will take it day by day.

I'm already missing previous summers when I'm begging people to come and pick the late summer bounty. However, we are hopeful that September holds great things strawberry-wise.  With some cooler temps and moisture, the strawberries should brighten up and start producing like they always do in late summer.  Stayed tuned!

Happy Labour Day Weekend.  Looks like more swimming is in the forecast!

Open 9am to 1pm Wednesday for strawberry U-pick.

Lotza of sweet, red strawberries in the patch.  The picking will be easy.

Bring cash and containers.

Closed Thursday.

And then there was one....

And thankfully these berries are in their prime!  STRAWBERRIES!  This is their season and it's looking like a good one.  They will more than replace the blueberries with their bounty, sweetness and easy picking.

The blueberry season is over which is disappointing in more ways than the fact it is over.  The crop wasn't at all a bountiful one.   Our freezer is not full and I know many of you didn't pick your usual quota.   With some head work, hands and probably a whole lot of heart, we're counting on a much better 2018 season from these 700 bushes which have given much, much more in previous seasons.

Two days of ripening means the strawberry patch is full of big, red berries. We are open Monday and Wednesday from 9am to 1pm for U-pick.

Closed Tuesday and Thursday.  Check back here for weekend hours. There are many weeks left of strawberry season.  Thank goodness!!

Bring cash and containers.

The littlest here at the farm is turning 8 tomorrow and we're celebrating big and taking her awaaaaaaay from the farm.  This means we will be closed Saturday. And Sunday too. Open Monday at 9am.

If you're concerned about getting your strawberries, not to worry. We have many weeks ahead of strawberry season.  The strawberries just get better as summer marches on!

Open today until 1pm.

Open Friday from 9am to 1pm for U-pick.

With a day to ripen the strawberry picking will be excellent.  Big, ripe, easy to pick, and delicious is their status this week.  The field is a lovely place these days.

A couple dozen bushes with blueberries are there for the picking for those that want to close out the 2017 blueberry season. It means almost 650 bushes were picked clean this season!   Well done everyone.

There is about 5 weeks left of strawberry season.  They produce well into September and we'll be open 3 to 4 days a week until the season is over. We look forward to making the most of the late, local strawberry season---join us!

As always, thank you for bringing cash and containers.
