As this may have been our last open day this season we want to thank all our customers who came out and picked berries with us this year.

 

 HEAVY PICKING  SATURDAY HAD THE FIELD PICKED OUT EARLY

We possibly will have a second crop in a week or two but it looks slim at this time.

IMPORTANT NOTICE

We have moved our office tent from our house down to the field. You can't miss it! Stop and get your picking buckets. Don't forget to bring a container to put your berries in to take home.

We should know by now that we can't predict how the weather and birds will affect our berries.

We were surprised to find so many mature sweet and large berries that continue to ripen after a devastating late freeze that destroyed all of the early blooms.

This turning out to be the best crop we have experienced in a number of years as confirmed by pickers on our first days open.

This encourages us that our recent heavy pruning and fertilization program seems to be working. With both a shorten Season and an abundance of ripening at the same time creates a challenge to get them picked.

Your help in getting your friends and neighbors out has been greatly appreciated as we had a lot of early pickers who were treated to some of the best berry picking we have seen in years. 

Rains are helping so far but birds have moved in and are gorging on the berries. check here for future open dates.

Visit this page regularly for latest updates.

We will not continue attempting to answer  phone calls or emails as in the past so this page will be updated on a daily bases during our picking season.

 We will update the night before we open or close the field.

Physical pruning along with late freeze reduced number of berries on some bushes
but there is an advantage!

fewer berries mean larger berries. With 3 weeks to go this may be the largest berries we have seen.
