2015 berries

Blueberries are probably about 2 weeks away from being ready to pick.  The black and red raspberries are also not ready.  Will try to keep blog updated and post when berries are ready for picking.  We look forward to seeing everyone again this year.

kids and berries

Our new kids are growing faster than weeds.  We have some very impressive bucklings this year.  They seem to be built with large bones and long bodies.  The kids are very colorful this year.  I think God had a good time and great imagination when creating them. 
 The weather is finally starting to break so we also need to get busy on the berry patch and try to stay ahead of the weeds and pruning. 
The end of 2014 and the beginning of 2015 has given us some  tough losses recently with the loss of  my step mom, a dear friend of ours, and 2 very much loved dogs Bear and Bailey.

Berry update 7/13/14

What an interesting year for the berries and fruits.  The black raspberries were frozen out by winter and some of the blueberry varieties did not bear fruit this year.  The peaches were also another one that couldn't  stand the cold brutal winter.  I hate to say it but I believe we are done until the red raspberries bear their fall crop.  We will be closed until that time.  I want to thank all of our customers for coming out this year.  We appreciate your business and enjoy meeting folks from all over the world.  Thanks again.  Jill

Berry Update 7/7/14

Blueberries will be at least 5-6 days before we have any available.  The black raspberries are done for the season and the red raspberries have some left to ripen but mostly there are some that are over ripe and then the fall crop starting to make fruit.  If you are wanting to pick blueberries I would call to see if they have ripened yet.  There are still quite a few but they seem to be in limbo rather than ripening.  

Berry Update

     We have had several berry pickers over the last few days that have picked most of the RIPENED red raspberries and blueberries.  We will have more ready within the next 3 or 4 days.  We do still have lots of black raspberries that are ready now, so come see us and pick your fresh berries.  

      You can make it a great day of family fun by visiting Grandpa Jeff's Trail Rides across the street when your done picking berries.  They have beautiful trails you can see on horseback and tell him that Zink Berry Farms sent you.  Have a good day and we look forward to seeing you soon.  

benefit ticket and purse found

Someone who came and picked left a benefit ticket here
for an event coming up real soon.  You must have lost it when you started to write a check.  We have it here but do not know how to contact you.

Someone has also left a purse here on our front porch.  I brought it in so the dogs wouldn''t tear it up.  Please come so we can return you your purse. Thanks



berry update 6/23/14

We have black raspberries available by the trucklload LOL.  the blueberries and red raspberries were well picked over the weekend (actually so were the black raspberries but they seem to be coming on all at once).  If you are planning on making black raspberry jam , jelly, canning some for cobblers etc.  Come now cause they are definitely available and boy are they good.    thanks and hope to see you soon.

berry update

We are watching the berries ripen everyday.  We should have enough berries ripe within a few days to open for picking.  For the raspberry lovers out there the black raspberries are coming along nicely.  The red raspberries are still rather slow and not as many close to being ready.  There are blueberries that are ripe now but the majority are still just starting to turn so they are probably a week away but might be ready sooner depending on the weather.  It is amazing how the difference in weather through last winter has really made a difference this spring in everything getting ripe so much later than normal.  One thing about it though they will still be a tasty treat when all is said and done.  We will try to keep the blog updated as the berries get ripe. thanks Jill Zink

berry update

We are going to postpone opening until Saturday the 21st of June.  The berries are just slow getting ripe most likely due to the hard winter we had.  Hopefully the blueberries and black raspberries will be ripe by then.  Keep checking the website for further updates.  We will post some pictures of the berries here in the next few days.   Please feel free to call if you have any questions.  Thank you and have a wonderful day.
