The rains we got yesterday burst many berries and lowered the quality of the remaining fruit. We have decided to end the season today. Thanks for your business this year and we hope to see you next year.

We still have berries!! There are several pockets of easily picked berries. There is a pretty good chance of rain tomorrow after lunch so come early. We will be open next week as usual (by appointment on Monday-Wed. and regular picking Thurs.-Sat.) but may run out of berries before the weekend.

Well, we have had a steady flow of customers today including a lot
of hard working kids. The picture shows two families' kids after
picking a lot of berries and notice the smiles. They had a great time!!!!!!
Plenty of berries left for tomorrow and Saturday.
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.
COVID 19 INFORMATION
Joe and Robin have both been fully vaccinated against the Covid 19 virus.
We will only use vaccinated people to fill "Pre-Picked" orders.
Soap and water and hand sanitizer will be available for all customers.
Please do not come to the farm if you are ill or suspect you may have been infected recently by Covid 19.
We will sanitize the buckets after each customers use.

Well, right now the field is LOADED with beautiful blueberry flowers and the "Southeastern
Blueberry Bees" are really busy pollinating them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! If we do not get any
temperatures down to 28 degrees we should have GREAT crop for the 1st time in 3 years.
Hope to see many of you out this year but we do not yet know how we will have to handle
distancing, masks, handling payments, etc. but it will work out well I am sure.
