Well, we had a good Friday at the farm and met a LOT of new customers

and some regulars.

Everyone seemed to get the berries they came for petty quick.

The berries are re-ripening fast and the berries that burst on Sunday have

pretty much dried up and fallen off  SOOOOO.. that means that picking

tomorrow morning should be GREAT!!!!. Looks like afternoon showers

so try to get here early. We have some hot spots in the field that we can 

put in for good picking.

Well, the 1st day of pick-your-own went well. The chance of rain for Fri and Sat

has been lowered so there is less chance of more berries bursting.  Pickers seemed

to have little trouble picking around the split berries which are drying out and 

falling off. Hope to see a lot of ya'll out picking soon.

 More Covid related information:  For the safety all who come pick berries we are asking that you "socially distance" yourself from people you didn't come with.  It's poor etiquette to pick right in the same area anyway!!  For the safety of your children we will not be offering colors and books and toys.  You may bring some to entertain your children if needed.  We will also be dispensing water for you if you do not bring your own and are thirsty.  Hand sanitizer will be available at the blueberry stand.  It would be a good idea to use it before you go out to pick.  We are doing all we can to keep you safe.  We ask that you refrain from bringing your pets with you, as they will not be allowed in the orchards.

We will officially be opening this Thursday (June 10) for "you-pick" berries. 

 We are now picking early season berries for orders while more of the field

ripens up. The bulk of the berries were not quite ripe yesterday BUT when

we got 3 inches of rain in just a short period MANY berries split!!!!!

This usually happens some almost every season but not so suddenly!!!

By Thursday the split berries should have shriveled and dried up and be easier

to pick around. You may want to look at previous posts for more info. such as 

hours and prices.

Watch the weather before coming out. If in doubt recheck for updates or call us.

Tentatively we hope to open for "you-pick" next Thursday (June 10th).

Our new hours/days are 7 AM till 7:30 PM  Thursday, Friday, and Saturday.

You may be able to make appointments on Monday- Tuesday, if necessary.

Our early varieties were hurt by the late freeze but the late varieties are more abundant

but it is difficult to know when they will be ripe.

Thanks for your patience 

Joe and Robin


Our new prices are $9.00/ 5 quarts you pick  and $18.00/ 5 quarts we pick.

The lowest prices we can find on the internet for other Mississippi farms are

 $8.00/ 4 quarts you pick and $15.00/ 4 quarts we pick .

One farm is charging $30.00/ 4 quarts u pick !!!!!!!!!
