WEd. 6/8/22 peach, blackberry, veg & flower picking! Bring garden shears to cut flowers & some vegs!
Tomorrow (Wed. June 8, 2022) is the day y'all have been patiently waiting for--we offer U-Pick peaches AND thornless blackberries, along with veggies, zinnias and gorgeous sunflowers! PEACH TREES WITH ORANGE FLAGGING TAPE (see photo) ARE THE THE ONLY ONES YOU CAN PICK FROM. Other trees without flagging tape have unripe fruit, so please don't even touch those--touching the unripe fruit causes disease to occur where it was touched. The blackberry fields are LOADED WITH RIPE BLACKBERRIES RIGHT NOW, so pick them before the sun cooks them on the vine. Blackberries and peaches can be picked in the same box, as they are both $5.50/lb. Veg price is $2.50.lb, so all the vegs can be placed in the same bag. You can also pick peaches in one of our thin grocery store-type plastic bags. In addition, we have pre-picked peaches for sale in the market. The farmers have worked incredibly hard to bring this peach-picking experience to you, and your respect for the trees will ensure the continuation of this activity. These trees are tediously pruned as living sculptures in order to facilitate their growth and production, so please do not allow children to eat or abuse the fruit, shake or climb the tree, or hang from or pull down the branches. Peach trees with pickable fruit are located among the fig trees, but DO NOT PICK FIGS YET--THEY ARE NOT RIPE! U-Pick peaches will be offered on a day-by-day basis, as we have several varieties that produce at different times this summer. 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): Wed., Thur, Fri, Sat., Sun. (June 8-12, 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.
