We are seeing the berries pass their peak earlier than ever before, but there are still beautiful berries ripening in the field. They will be easy to pick and delicious.
Yesterday, we were complemented to be mentioned on WRAL’s article on places to pick blueberries. We had a great turnout that resulted from the article. Some people may have been disappointed because we didn’t have the quantity of berries that we normally have. The spring heat brought the berries in early and the spring freeze reduced our production significantly. We are hoping for better luck next season.
We are changing our hours to reflect the picking conditions. We will open from 8am to 11am Tues, Thurs and Sat this week. We will see what the berries tell us after that. Possibly, we will be able to have picked blackberries still available.
