U-Pick Information:

Those who want to pick their own need to know some basic facts about Blackberries.  ALL fruit is best picked in the cool mornings when the fruit is at its optimum flavor as the plant has poured moisture and nutrients into the fruit all night long.  As the day progresses, the plant takes moisture and sugar from the fruit to meet the stress needs of the plant in the heat of the day. Heat is the enemy of fruit. Blackberries are even more critical to pick in the cool mornings as they have no skin like grapes.

The roadside fruit stand for the 2024 season is complete. The Blackberry harvest is underway and shaping up to be a very good crop. Our roadside fruit stand will be stocked with freshly harvested Blackberries daily starting May 28, 2024. The daily harvest increases to reach full production of 200 pints a day by June 1. The fruit stand will have vented pint containers at $5/pint. (Same price as last year - enjoy the berry-licious bargain with a smile) Blueberry and Blackberry Jams and Jellys will be at the stand on opening day. U-Pick your own is also available at $5/person and $5/pint starting after June 1 until June 29th, 2024.
