You Pick - be ready at a moments notice!

This season may be a struggle for those who intend to You Pick. The rainy weather causes challenges with fruit picking. We will try to be open every day but if it is raining we can not.

Why not? Fruit should not be picked when it is wet. It is tender so it crushes plus it will not keep.

Have an action plan. Watch the weather forecast, be ready when it breaks, pile in the car, gear in hand and hit the fields. Refrigerate and process your fruit as soon as you are able.

We will have a good supply of already picked fruit on the Farm Stand. If you need large quantities contact us to place an order. As always we appreciate your patronage.

The old timers have a saying "a dry year will scare you but a wet year will kill you".
