WHAT A DAY!!! Thank you to all that came to pick berries on our opening day, braving the mud and cool weather. When we have families come from miles around to our farm and are so appreciative of what we do, it makes all of the work worth it and inspires us to keep on plodding along with our planting, and hoeing, and watering, and picking, etc.etc.etc.....I get tickled seeing the excitement children get, seeing ponies, baby goats, and chickens, and the curious questions that are asked like "where are the strawberry trees?" "why does that girl goat have a beard?""What happened the all the feathers on that chickens Butt?""That parrot keeps asking me "What are you doing?" and telling me"I got a problem." ( I have failed to mention that we raise parrots, also.)Everyone was so gracious and treated our farm with reverence and respect. We are looking forward to the next picking day which will be Monday from noon until pickout. We are taking reservations for the next Sat. May 1 and the spots are filling fast. Call or e-mail and leave your name and the number of persons in your group and contact information and we will contact you to confirm your spot. We will start at 10:00 on Saturdays , Noon on Monday and Wednesdays. We will still take special appointments if there are sufficient strawberries to pick, at other times more convenient for pickers.We look forward to seeing you, From our farmstead to your table, thank you for all of your support!
