BLUEBERRY U-PICK UPDATE

sad faceTo all you potential blueberry pickers: Tomorrow, Sat. we will be closed and closed until further notice. The late crop is ripening slowly and enough people came today to pick all there was. Sorry if you didn’t get enough. We’ll just have to wait until there are a lot more ripened to open up again.

Just checked the peaches and they need more time also. They are a beautiful color but still hard. Keep watching and thanks to all our customers.
Remember: NO DOGS allowed.

BLUEBERRY U-PICK UPDATE

BLUEBERRY SIGN 15Today is the last picking day until further notice.  The first crops are picked pretty clean.  There are two crops that are later varieties that are just starting to turn.  One is Chandler, which has large berries and Jersey which is a firm, medium size sweet berry.  We expect in about another week they will be ready.  If you haven’t gotten the chance to pick yet keep watching this site or our Facebook page for the next picking dates.

We are eagerly awaiting our peach crop.  We are guessing that we will start picking peaches by the third week in Aug.   Peaches are starting to put on the blush color but it takes a couple more weeks for them to develop their size.  Stay tuned for that.
