Will it ever stop raining?

After a rather dry spring it now feels like the rain won't stop. Fortunately we have very good ground which drains fast but the Strawberries, Red Raspberries and Sweet Cherries can only take so much. Keep your fingers crossed that the storms predicted for this week won’t last long or even better miss us completely. One good aspect of all the rain is it will make the Blueberries big and juicy!

Summer is here!

Welcome to G and S Orchards first official Blog! We need to thank Lance Topping for pushing us into the “Techno World”. Suzanne and all the crew at BizWonk Inc have done a wonderful job.

Summer appears to be here. You Pick times for Strawberries are: 7:30am to 11:30am every day (unless it is pouring). The Strawberries are at their peak. Please don’t disappoint yourself or the family by waiting too long. We anticipate having Strawberries until the week after the 4th of July.

Red Raspberries are ripening fast and should be ready soon. Every one is asking for Sweet Cherries. The cool spring weather really slowed things down. We had Sweet Cherries last year on June 24th. We hope to start You Pick by the 4th of July this year.

Ribes what? These are Currants and Gooseberries. We have many colors and varieties to choose from. They should be ready Mid July. Check out the picking schedule for other Berries and Produce.

Be sure to follow us on Twitter.

See you in the Strawberry field!
