Current Picking Conditions

UPDATE!! We are done picking strawberries for the 2014 season, however, we have just begun our summer red raspberry season.  Our next day of raspberry picking will be on Saturday, July 12 starting at 8 am.  Starting July 14 our hours will be as follows Mondays, Thursdays, & Saturdays (8 am - 2 pm) and Tuesdays from 3-7 pm.  In the beginning of the season the berries trickle in slowly, but hopefully by the week of July 14 they will fill in fully.  As always, we recommend calling before coming out to guarantee that we have berries out in the field to pick.
