 It looks like the end of pick your own strawberries is here. There are still berries out there but not enough for both pick your own and for us to supply the market. You may still want to  call to see if we are allowing anyone to pick at certain times. we have done this in the past occasionally.

Tender squash and fresh colorful beans have been seen coming from the fields. Yellow squash, patty pan squash, yellow zuchinni, Cos or magda zuchinni, green zuchinni are all coming in well now. You may not be familar with Cos zuchinni. Last year we had a customer who cooked it as a stuffed vegetable/meat combination. If you are interested now is the time to get it. We have some tender fresh beans. Snaps, half runners , yellow wax beans are all coming off the farm. We still have some garden peas and cucumbers. Blackberries are coming in as well. The high bush blueberries are beginning. the PYO and rabbit eye blueberries should begin about June 20th. Meanwhile look for peaches to start about June 10th. Plums will be about then or shortly after. Tomaotes, cantaloupes and melons will not be long either.

The strawberry field is doing some funny things. It has very little ripe fruit at the moment. The rain took away many of the would be ready berries due to water damage. But this year's crop has some life still in it. There are a significant number of green berries that we beleive will come through. As of Wednesday we know that the fileds will be closed for PYO until some time perhaps Friday or Saturday? Please call if you have questions. Thank you

 The blueberry crop looks good. In fact it may be better than good. The high bush crop is small which we began harvesting today.Pick your own will begin about June 20th. Picking will last into August. Look for updates at theis website.  blackberries will come soon

 The fields have gotten better! the flavor of the fruit is very good while the picking remains fairly good. The size of the fruit is smaller but large fruit  is still there. The feilds should be open on a daily basis except we are closed on Sundays.

 The strawberries are improving in quality and flavor. The size is somewhat smaller and the picking is not as easy but still easy enough. The field should be open from 8 am to 4:30 -5:00pm most days.

Strawberry update May 3 :  The fields should be open everyday this week ( closed Sundays). We are trying hard to keep the plants in good shape and hope that they will continue to produce for several more weeks.

Be on the look out for other fruits and veggies that will be coming soon.

Strawberry Update April 25. The fields will be open every day this week ( we do close on Sundays ). The picking has been very good. Most of you have been very good about bringing containers to take your berries home after you pick. Thank you for understanding. We regret to have to charge for the boxes and have tried to let you know ahead so you could avoid any unexpected cost. We have some very good people who come every year and many of them often to pick strawberries. We do appreciate you all.

Strawberry update April 13th

The strawberry field will be open Wednesday at 8:00am. I had said it would be open until 12:00 noon and was not sure about the afternoon. The cool nights have slowed down the ripening of the fruit. My concern is that there be enough really good and ripe fruit for everyone to pick. One good day of ripening can make a tremendous difference but it is not always easy to determine exactly what will happen. I will try to stay open til noon.

Please bring something to put your berries in after you pick. We will have buckets to pick in but this year we have to charge for the boxes that we have given out free in the past.
