STRAWBERRY UPDATE!!!! Our little plants are making lots of berries, we should have a bumper crop this year. After mulling over the hours we had set, we decided to make a few changes, we have had several calls from families that want to come pick, but our hours through the week conflict with school, so we are going to change the time on Monday and Wednesday from noon until 5:00pm, so we will have some after school picking. Saturday will be from 10:00 in the morning until "pickout".If we have sufficient berries we will accept special appointments at other times. It would be advisable to call ahead or e-mail and check on availability before you come. We will allow so many persons in the strawberry field, if you call ahead we will put your name on a list and make sure that you have a picking spot when you come. Next week we will post our guidlines for pickers so that you will know what to expect when you come. The price of the berries will be $2.50 per lb. We will have some already picked for an extra charge. We will provide the picking baskets . All of this information is weather dependent. Naturally we will not be picking in the rain, or if there are few berries to pick we will close until more are ripe. We have a habit of flying by the seat of our pants, and as this is our first year with the u-pick strawberries, and we will have some kinks to work out, you will all be flying with us! From our farmstead to your table, thank you for all of your support!
