WEATHER REPORT WITH ACTIVE RADAR

This weekend will be the remainder of the first bloom berries. We do not expect the abundance that we had last week  but still expect alot of the first big "Primer" berries to be ready for picking. We are still watching the second bloom which will come in in the next week or two.

(Will be opening and closing the field based on available ripe berries)

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 are 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 undoubtedly is 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 is greatly appreciated. 

We opened the field one day last Saturday.

Fortunately, we still have a large number of berries that will ripen in the next few weeks.

Rains are helping so far and birds are not a problem so keep checking for future open dates.

 

Visit this page regularly for latest updates.

We will be posting our operating days which will change as we monitor the ripening and picking.

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!

Plenty of rain is vital to the nourishment of our bushes and -

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