The berries are gearing up for weekend # 2 of berry season. The cool weather has made it possible for the plants to keep setting fruit, as it looks, we should have berries for three or four more weeks! The schedule will continue with this Friday and Saturday picking, starting at 9:00 am. until pickout. The next picking day will be Tues. am at 9:00, as this will give the remaining berries time to ripen. We will then pick again on Thurs. at 9:00am and again on Saturday at 9:00am. Now if I have you totally confused, just call the farm, 903-429-2319 and each morning a current schedule will be announced. The market hours remain the same. Thurs. Fri. Sat. from noon until 4pm.  What seasonal produce and dairy that we have, will be available. Due to the odd weather we have had, cold, then hot, windy, then calm, rainy,then dry, our planting and harvesting is out of whack, so the produce will be available as soon as we have some to harvest. (We have planted our tomatoes three times, so much for being a gambler) As for the dairy, we have plenty of goat milk and goat milk products. The cow milk is still on rations, as we are waiting for Lulu the Diva, to decide it is time to help us out. She has always done things her way and whenever she feels like it. Poppy is a first time freshener and she is due a little later. As we leave the calves on the mommas, we may be lucky to get a squirt or two of what is left from her milk! From our farmstead to your table, thank you for all of your support!!!

  1. I'm glad to see such an upbeat post, given the hailstorm I got to listen to last night. I'm hoping to be out there in the morning!
