Merry Christmas + Happy Holidays ~ December Newsletter 2015

It's that time of the year when things around the farm are finally quite. This typically only lasts for about two weeks then it's right back to work we go. But it is convenient that the two weeks happen to be around the Holidays. 

When we start working again it will be time to start pruning the blueberries, this will take up the majority of our time for the foreseeable future.  Normally it takes around two months, but depending on weather (snow, freezing temps, etc.) it can be more like three. 
If you have plants that need to pruned please feel free to check our blog post we did on pruning blueberries. Click here to see the blog post. 

We Need Your Help!

We are in the mists of making changes and gearing up for new projects. But we need your help! We would appreciate it very much if you could fill out our survey. At the end of our survey there is an awesome coupon as a thank you for helping us out!

Food For Thought

In recent weeks we have seen a rise in nutritional information articles about Black Raspberries, and Aronia berries. We will be sharing all articles we find on our Facebook and Twitter accounts. But these are a couple of articles that we really like. 
We will have Black Raspberries + Aronia Berries available to purchase in the Harvest of 2016. 
Freeze Dried Powder Update:
We are about a month away from receiving freeze dried powder for our Blueberries and Blackberries.  
We will not have raspberry, or strawberry still. 
More details will be in our January Newsletter (finally! yay!)

Cold Weather Shipping is Back!

We know a lot of you guys have been waiting for our cold weather shipping to come back. For those of you who are new to our site, every winter we are able to offer better shipping prices on our frozen berries. We are able to do this by shipping by ground rather than by 2-day air, which is standard in our store online. To take advantage of our ground shipping this winter, give us a call at 541-752-0460 (10 am to 4 pm, PST). 

Winter + Holiday Office Hours

Our office hours right now are Monday to Friday 10 am to 4 pm PST.
Our office will also be closed from December 21, 2015 to January 4, 2016. ( During this time we will still be filling online orders.)

Website Changes on The Horizon

We are going to be making changes to our website, so if you see something wonky, or weird. Please have patience as we will be improving and changing it over the next few months. Our goal is that in 2016 we will have a brand new site, that is educational, and user friendly.
