We will open the farm on Saturday, May 8, 2021 (7:30am-1:00pm), but don't get too excited and think there will be much to pick on the first day. There MAY be 10 lbs. of ripe blackberries on the 3 miles of fences now, but you can see TONS will ripen soon. We'll have more total berries than ever before, but the harvest will be a little later than usual. Because the cool spring has been great for early crops like squash, kale, Napa cabbage, sunflowers, and zinnias, we need to open and get them picked. If you're just looking for an outing and want to see what will be ready soon, come out and enjoy the morning, with limited expectations. At any time during the open hours, we are likely to be "picked out" on specific items. Admission $2.00-age 2 and up. Please bring your garden shears to cut flowers. See our "Home" tab on this website for more information about visiting the farm. We wish we could open with more, but we are grateful for what we do have, and are looking forward to the season being our best ever; it's just getting off to a slow start.
We're inching closer to our opening date, but with the 6" of rain we got last week and cool, cloudy days, the TONS of berries are just taking their sweet time to ripen. Vegetables are loving this weather, and the updated map shows we added more U-Pick veggie fields this year. Sunflowers are not listed on the map, but there are many rows scattered all over the place, with lots of different varieties and colors. A few days of sunshine is all we need to get this season open, so keep watching here for the for the big announcement of the opening day. TIP: screenshot this map on your phone so you can use it for reference in the field, or it is always available on the SITE MAP tab on this website.
