You can email me back to reserve them or call me at 919-538-8111 to let me know how many you want and when you can come get them. I will be here this weekend so I can be available Saturday, morning, December 3rd, for pickup.

Archived November 17, 2016: Persimmons are ready

Hello, everyone,
Our persimmons are now in! They are large and delicious. Is is so nice to have a fresh, local winter fruit. They are the Giant Fuyu variety which is not astringent like our native persimmons. They are great raw and can be eaten from crisp like an apple to fully ripe. They are really sweet this year.
They will be available this Saturday and Sunday from 9am to 12pm. If these times are not convenient, you can call me at 919-538-8111 to set up another time to come by. You can also call to reserve whatever quantity you would like to pickup.
The price is $20 per tray of 12.

See you soon.     Betty

We are now closed for the 2016 berry picking season. We are already busy pruning the plants so that they will be able to produce another bountiful crop.
We appreciate your taking the trouble to come out in all types of weather to pick our berries. We hope that you will remember us next year and that we will see you then.
We will be emailing you when we have other crops available especially the persimmons in late fall.

See you next year!     Betty

July 18, 2016: Last week for blueberries

We will be picking blueberries tomorrow, Tuesday, July 9th from 7am to 1pm.
The blueberries are plentiful and easy to pick. They are so delicious!
Don’t miss out on a chance to put berries in the freezer for those winter cobblers and pies.

Archived July 15, 2016: Pick before we prune

Even though our field is still loaded with blueberries, we need to plan when our year end pruning will be done. This pruning sets up the plants for next year’s fruiting. If we wait too late, it will reduce the amount of fruit that the plants will set.
With that in mind, we will need to start pruning on Sunday, July 24th.
This means that we will have 4 more days of picking in the full field:  tomorrow, Saturday, July 16th, then next week Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday the 23rd.  The hours for each day will be 7am to 1pm.
Please take this opportunity to plan your trips to our farm. The blueberries are still plentiful, beautiful, delicious and so easy to pick.
See you soon.     Betty

Archived July 11, 2016: Blueberries, blueberries!!!

We will be open tomorrow, Tuesday, July 12th from 7 am to 1 pm.
Blueberries are so loaded that you can pick a bucket off one bush!
We are sometimes asked what is the difference between our berries and the ones you get in the store. Store berries are usually mechanically harvested. This means that the varieties are grown for the ability to withstand the shaking of the harvester, to last a long time on the shelf, and to ripen all at once. Our berries, on the other hand, are chosen to have great flavor and to ripen over time so that they can be enjoyed longer.
We will have some blackberries and the raspberries are coming in stronger once again.

See you soon,   Betty

Archived July 6, 2016: Blueberries galore

Hello Berry Lovers,
We will be open tomorrow, Thursday, July 7th from 7am to 1pm.
The blueberries are jumping into the buckets and they are ripe and so sweet. The ones in the store can’t compare in size and flavor. Don’t miss this opportunity to get some for this season. They will only last so long.
Blackberries are a little difficult to find but raspberries are still plugging along for the early birds.

See you soon.    Betty
