Ahhh... the weather. I used to think it was weird how farmers talked about the weather all the time. I mean, really, have you nothing better to talk of? And simply put... now that I am a farmer too... no! Really, life out here is all about the weather-- trying to figure out when it is going to rain so that we can plan weeding and other field work. And when it doesn't rain, what we could possibly do to help the crops along.
Speaking of weather... finally we've received some much needed moisture and the strawberries are ready! Yes, that's right we are opening for strawberries! Monday, May 28 will be our first day open. We will be picking Annapolis (our early variety) to start with and then after a week to a week and a half we will have the Jewel variety available as well. Hours will be Monday thru Saturday 8 am - 7 pm. Cost for pick your own berries is $1.75 per pound. Buy in bulk --pick more than 75 lbs and buy them for just $1.50 per pound. Bring your own containers this year and receive a 5 cent per pound container discount. Sorry, no container discounts on bulk orders.
If you have questions about picking conditions or anything else, feel free to give us a call at 507-252-1309.
