We had a severe thunderstorm after we closed up on Friday. We were lucky no one was here because sometimes it is difficult to get everyone out of the fields and checked out when a thunderstorm occurs. An open blueberry field is no place to be during a thunderstorm and sometimes they can move in very quickly without a lot of warning. Our policy is to close the field immediately during a storm. We want everyone to have a safe and fun picking experience while you are here.
We have had great picking conditions since we opened and we expect that to continue though the month of July and into August. A big thank you to our local newspaper, Foster’s Daily Democrat, who featured our farm with a picture on the front page this week. http://www.fosters.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20080716/GJNEWS_01/706742488&SearchID=73324279110701 We have had many new customers who say they came to pick because of the article. Thank you to everyone who came out to pick this week.
