Blueberries Ready

Blueberries are available now and black raspberries are probably a week or so away!!!!!!!

blueberries galore

Blueberries are in their prime!!  Right now is the time to pick. We have more blueberries available now than ever before. Our newest plantings are also loaded with berries and therefore there are more berries right now than there will be once that variety is done. 
    The black raspberries are close. We are starting to get some when we mow.  We also have farm fresh eggs.

Blueberries are ready!! We also have some strawberries available.

Berries 2016

First off to the ones who have called I have been working 12 hours a day and have been unable to return calls.My apologies.  The blueberries are just starting to ripen with only a half dozen or so berries at a time.....yummy pancakes for us lol.  The picking season should start by the second week of June around the 15th.  That may be sooner depending on the weather.  The black raspberries are forming nicely and will also be just a few weeks away.  
We do have a small crop of strawberries and not enough to really have a u-pick open for them.  We have been having strawberries for jam and fresh.  If you would like to come pick some strawberries you can probably get several gallon starting Thursday of this week....we are picking today (Tuesday) but our patch is small.  

Berries available

We have blueberries, black and red raspberries available now.  Our hours are T-F 8am -8pm.  Saturday and Sunday 1pm-6pm.  Closed on Mondays.  We look forward to seeing you!  Jill Zink

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.

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 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
