beat the weekend crowd--great picking thursday 6/9/22--tons of blackberries, peaches, veggies and flowers!
More U-pick peaches, blackberries, veggies and flowers available tomorrow -Thur, 6/9/22. Shout-out to all the peach pickers today for an outstanding job of respecting the orchard trees! We greatly appreciate all those who picked so carefully that there were only a few fallen peaches and very minimal tree damage, so considering the crowd that picked today, that was awesome! Tomorrow is the same as today--please pick only from trees with ORANGE FLAGGING TAPE ATTACHED, as the fruit on other trees is not ripe yet. You may pick peaches in a bag or combine in the picking box with blackberries since both are same price ($5.50/lb). Please keep vegs in separate bag, since vegs are priced @ $2.50/lb. Blackberry vines are still LOADED, so hurry in and make your annual freezer-filling pilgrimage while they are still plentiful. If you fill your box and need another, just flag down one of the carts driving around and they usually have an extra picking box aboard and will put your name on your filled box and drive it up front to be held for you in the market. Please see yellow sign pictured here for what is and is not available for picking tomorrow. We never have U-Pick cantaloupes or watermelons, but now we have pre-picked Dove cantaloupes for sale in the market. Watermelons are not ripe yet, but we should have some pretty soon if the wildlife will leave some for us! This farm is our livelihood, and EVERY OUNCE COUNTS, so please pick, weigh and pay BEFORE EATING PRODUCE. Hours the rest of this week (unless rained out, which is not likely):Thur, Fri, Sat., Sun. (June 9-12, 2022) 7:30am-1:00pm. Pickers must check in before 12:30pm and weigh/pay by our 1:00pm sharp closing time. PLEASE BRING SHEARS/CLIPPERS FOR CUTTING FLOWERS AND SOME VEGGIES.
