Blueberry season is well underway. By the weekend, we will be hitting the Collins and the picking should be plentiful. To thank our loyal customers, we are adding another prepaid container for the peak season: 8-qt. picking flat which holds about 12 lbs. of blueberries when full and is available for sale at $35 (under $3/lb.). If you truly prefer the old way, we are happy to provide you with a lined 2 gal. bucket and the price will be $3.99/lb. and you pay when you leave. Just ask the cashier when you get there before heading to the field.
We are using pre-paid options for pick-your-own:
Quantity Blueberries Raspberries
1 pint (about 1 lb.) ** $ 4 $ 5*
4 pints $15($3.75/lb.) $18*
8 pints ----- $32*
4-quart box (about 6 lbs.) ** $20**($3.33/lb.) -----
8-quart box (about 12 lbs.) ** $35**($2.92/lb.) -----
(Peak Season Only)
*raspberries only **blueberries only
As for raspberries, we are now in the Encore and they will be available for about one more week, possibly 2, depending on the weather. Blackberries will be ready towards the end of July.
Our stand at Hebron Ave. now has great native corn from Gotta’s. We have also started to dig our potatoes. Our fields are producing a wide range of fresh vegetables and we look forward to the first tomatoes by the end of the month.
