Dr Young’s Pond Berry Farm 2021 OPEN
|WE WILL BE OPEN THIS SATURDAY, JUNE 19th from 9 – 12 for Blackberry, Blueberry, and Raspberry picking! |
This year has been a challenge with late freezes and variable temperatures.
We are happy to report that we will have a fine crop of blackberries, blueberries, and
raspberries. The berries will be a little later than last year because we lost a lot of our
earlier fruiting blueberries in the freezes.
Please share with friends.
With the new season comes new changes to the farm and we’re pretty excited about them! Instead of the old barn, we’re moving up the hill to the top of the parking lot by the new field. (The entrance and exit haven’t changed.) Prepaid buckets were so popular last year we are doing them again, AND we will have a bucket tent at the edge of the old field if you need to grab more.
Another popular return will be Jonathan’s fantastic Fruit Plants. If ever you’ve wanted interesting plants that will bear fruit, Jonathan is the guy to talk to.
What’s Happening Right Now
Life on the farm is blooming! From ducklings in the lake to berries in the field, the farm is full of new energy. Nearly everyday the dogs are announcing the presence of a turtle laying its eggs. These hatchlings are always an adorable sight as they make their way through the berry field towards the lake. You will find them on the farthest reaches of the farm, working hard to build the strength they need to live in the lake.
The new planting of Raspberries has taken off a bit beyond our expectations. As always, be prepared to show up early to get them!
We were very aware of the limitations that Covid 19 placed on us this season and we heartily thank everyone for abiding by the guidelines in place!
