Harvest Report: U-Pick + Fresh Picked Blueberries


Another busy week is in the books for us. We really enjoyed the weather last week and it looks like another week in the 80's for us. Which is great! Our berries are getting sweeter and sweeter. We have heard that some local U-Picks have closed in the area so that may or not mean we will have more U-Pickers when you come visit us! Not to worry though, we haven't even gotten across half the field yet. 

Our Hours are from 9 am to 6 pm everyday. 
The variety is Blue Crop, and our price is $2.75 per pound. Please bring your own containers to take your berries home in.  

It looks like the weather will be in the 80's this week so we do not expect to close the field for cooling at time this week. If temperatures exceed 95 then we will be closing for cooling in the afternoon, but we will let everyone know if that comes up.
In our tent we only have fresh picked blueberries right now. The next berry we will have are fresh blackberries which won't be available for a week or so yet. Stay tuned for updates! If your wanting to order a head of time we are more than happy to take it! You can call us at 541-752-0460, or you can email us at sunsetvalleyorganics@gmail.com. 


We do not ship fresh berries, because we can not guarantee the condition they will arrive in.  

In other news we have started harvesting our youngest plantings. These are baby crops and we are very excited to be getting fruit from them. A few years ago we took out all the plantings that were too old, and replanted with new varieties, so we are now able to start seeing a harvest from them.
