2011 has been a great year for blueberries. We are in the midst of our 5th week of picking so make sure you come out soon for the best berries. We anticipate having fruit through the end of August but will probably have to close near the end of the month to wait for ripening of our late variety. Blackberries have been slow to ripen but we have many of them and hope to be picking those yummy berries until the end of August.
Our hats have arrived and are for sale at the screen house for $12 along with canvas bags with our logo on them for $10. Below is a picture of Matt who has been our super blueberry picker for the farm this year. He was gracious enough to model his hat!
We have had so many great customers come out this year but we were so pleased to see Bud and Eli last week who have been coming to the farm from Dover for many years. They have been married for over 70 years and love to pick blueberries.
Thanks to everyone who has come out to pick their blueberries and blackberries this year at the farm…don’t delay if you haven’t come to pick yet…the season won’t last much longer!
Below are some pictures of our redesigned Screen House which our friend Dennis organized and pulled together. So many people have commented on it and thought we had built it new this year…nope! It was just an ugly old building that no one would enter…now it houses a freezer with frozen goodies, our jams and jellies, fresh produce and cookbooks all on a lovely antique farm table. Check it out!
We have great picking conditions in all three blueberry fields and have started picking some wonderful blackberries from the blackberry patch. Blackberries are ripening each day so call ahead for best picking times.
The following pictures are some of our favorite customers! Be sure to come out soon for best picking conditions. We are running 10 days ahead of our usual picking schedule because of the very warm spring and summer so we are unsure when our season will end. The crop looks spectacular this year!
