Today’s U-Pick Conditions- 8/15/22

We still have blueberries- lots and lots of blueberries! The heat and the rain have done much to ripen the remaining blueberries, and the bushes are loaded again!

Spring raspberry season is over, but our fall crop is starting to take shape. Many green berries are popping up and should be ready for picking in the next few weeks. We will let you know as soon as they are ready for picking.

Plums have turned purple and are beginning to ripen, but they aren’t quite ready yet. 

Please watch Facebook, Instagram or our website for updates on U-Pick availability.
