The strawberry field is open from 9 to 12 today. The weather looks like it will hold off raining. It is still wet so be prepared for wet conditions. The field should be open Monday as well at 8 am.

We have berries picked at the produce market. Be sure to check out the bakery and garden center as well. It really is spring, savor the goodness. 

Have a berry sweet day!

Happy Easter!! I hope your day is one of resilient hope rooted in truth and eternal joy!

Things are happening here on the farm. First the strawberries are red and we are picking. As some of you know who have been with us for years, the flavor of the fruit is affected by the weather and growing conditions. So it may seem strange unless you understand this but with cool nights it takes longer to get the full flavor in the fruit. This is not true for some fruits such as apples  and pears. They get better with cool nights. Many small fruits actually benefit from warm temperatures. Blueberries, blackberries and peaches especially. It has to do with  sugar production in the leaves and the transfer to the fruit.

  Obviously, you know what I am looking for in the strawberries and I am confident we will get there soon. We have tried some new techniques that I hope will result in very pleasing berries. We started picking the first berries Saturday. We expect the PYO to open very soon depending on the weather. The crop looks to be one that will get rolling fast once it begins.

Meanwhile the market is open. the strawberries we are picking are good but the flavor will improve. The produce section is still slim but we are wanting to rely more on what we grow. Our commitment to offer you the best quality at the best price is one we take seriously. We are continuing to  set out our transplants and nurturing the crops to maturity.

The market should be open this Friday. The Produce will begin a little slow due to the fact we are trying to produce more of what we sell. Strawberries are turning red so things should progress steadily. The cool front hopefully will not do us damage and PYO strawberries will be here very soon.

  We have a lot to look forward to this weekend with Easter and Spring reviving our spirits. We hope for you the best.

It will soon be Thanksgiving Day. November is brings many changes in shorter daylight and cooler weather. We have some good items for the season. A very good selection of winter squashes, pie pumpkins and butternut. The good news for tomato and pepper lovers is we are still picking both here on the farm. Heirloom tomatoes are still coming out of the field. Enjoy this opportunity while you can.

We hope you have a good Thanksgiving everyday.

  The winter squashes are still proving their worth, the butternut is excellent right now. Pie pumpkins and chrenshaws are plentiful. Kobochas, buttercups and hubbards are available as well.

  Pick your pumpkins will be open 10 am to 12 noon Saturday. Stock pig racing will be at 10 and 12:30 or there abouts. The weather should be just right.
