Berries

 

Berries

Upick hours: Closed until blackberries come on. Maybe 2 weeks? Watch for updates.

Spring Strawberries: Done (no crop this year)
Black Raspberries: Done for 2017

Summer Red Raspberries: Done for 2017
Blackberries: Guessing we will start u-pick late July or early August.
Fall red raspberries: September through first frost.

If you are on our email list we will email when picking starts and picking days, or watch facebook and our website!

We also now carry some jam making supplies, including Pomona’s Pectin in our store! If you are wanting to make sugar free jam or jam using honey, try Pomona’s!

Raspberries: Our red berries are large and flavorful, freeze and jam well. Fall berries are larger than summer berries. Black raspberries are smaller and seedier. Like the strawberries, they need to be used within a few days of picking! U-Pick raspberries are $3.29/lb + tax for the first 8 lbs, additional pounds are $2.99 + tax.

Picked Berries must be ordered in advance, berries aren’t picked until ordered. We pick in the morning so order berries no later than the day before you need them. Picked flats are $27/red and $30/black for a 5 lb flat, tax included, $15/red $17/black for a half flat.

Raspberry Hints: Don’t wash berries until just before you use them. These berries freeze very well, I recommend lightly rinsing, drain well, then place them on a cookie sheet in a single layer, freeze, then put in plastic bags.

Stop by the store to get your picking “buskets” and check in when you come!

If you can’t live without one of our picking buckets/baskets, you can purchase new ones for $2! We also have strawberry corers, jars, and pectin. 

Hints for processing: If you want to freeze strawberries for smoothies and more, pick the smaller sized ones, they freeze the best whole. Wash, core, and drain them good (I use a salad spinner) and put them on a cookie sheet to freeze, then put them in a freezer bag or container so you can pull out individual berries instead of a solid mass!

Strawberries: No spring u-pick for 2017, sorry! If you have forgotten what a strawberry is supposed to taste like, come see us! Our season is usually a few weeks in June, watch for updates or call or email to be put on a contact list. We are trialing some everbearers which means we may have limited numbers of strawberries in late summer. U-Pick is $6.99/gallon + tax for the first 4 gallons, the 5th gallon up is $5.99+ tax. People usually fill gallons 4-6 lbs. Picked Gallons are $10.50, tax included.

We grow what we call 2 day berries. They are very large sweet and juicy, and will need to be used soon (2 days) after picking as they will not keep like the shipped varieties. We select varieties that jam and freeze well, as well as taste amazing fresh. Many people comment that Tubbs’ Berries are the best berries they have ever had! We grow our strawberries on raised beds covered with plastic mulch. The irrigation system runs under the plastic which means the fruit is generally clean and dry. The only water that hits the fruit comes from the sky. We don’t use any chemicals in the fields. Children are welcome to pick if they are supervised. Berries need to be cooled as soon as possible after picking, they deteriorate rapidly in the heat!

 
Pumpkin Patch: Pumpkins aren’t berries but we thought you might like to know that yes, we planted our pumpkin patch this year! There will be a straw maze, hayride, corn cannon and petting zoo!  See the Pumpkin Patch Page for more info!
