End of U-Pick Blueberry Season

The season is finally coming to a close for our U-Pick Blueberries. This coming Saturday (August 25, 2012) will be the last day we are open with our farm stand. We will be switching to our Fall/Winter hours of Monday through Friday 10am to 4pm and by appointment. We still have fresh blackberries, and will have frozen blueberries, blackberries, strawberries and raspberries.

We had a great season and are excited for next years crop already! Keep a watch on our site this fall for new products becoming available! Or join our newsletter to stay informed.

Summer's Finally Heating Up!

Saturdays are always a busy day for us here on the farm. Today is no different. The U-Pick field is busy with people coming out of the field with huge gorgeous berries. We are still on the first pick of the field, and plan on doing a second, however those berries look to be just as large as the first pick, and it’s pretty amazing! Our U-Pick price is $2.65 per pound, and we are open from 8am to 6pm daily.

We have another berry that is just coming into season, blackberries that are plump and as large as my thumb! We have two sizes available at the farm stand and at the Corvallis Saturday Farmers Market which is one pound for $5.00 and five pounds for $18.00. This is the first weekend we are having them and we expect the season to go for at least three weeks. If you are wanting to get a lot we in courage you to place an order, or wait until we are mid season and have a lot more of a supply.

This weekend’s heat is sure to help ripen every crop, and we are anticipating the start of our frozen picking season to start this coming week. Which also means we are going to start packing this year’s crop in our frozen boxes, please call ahead to find out if we are indeed packing or if your wanting to pick up more than 2 boxes (30 pounds per box) at a time.

Have a great weekend everyone! Keep cool!
