HUGE 🍑 SALE!!!
Contender peaches are on sale! Pick your own half bushel boxes are only $10 - that’s the same price as our pick your own bags!!! Spread the news, this is the best deal you’re going to find on peaches.

These are a fantastic canning peach, and great for freezing or fresh eating. They’re freestone, so cutting them up is a breeze! Boxes will be available on the stand, then follow the signs to the row marked “contender”. We are self serve and accept exact change, or checks.

The time has finally arrived for PYO donut peaches! And we have quite the deal - PYO 1/2 peck bags are $10, and that is a LOT of donut peaches.

If you’ve never tried one before, you are missing out. These are one of the sweetest peaches available, and they have a delicious, distinct flavor.

We still have Sentry peaches, and Red Haven will open in a few days.

Other fruit 🍓
- strawberries are slim picking, but still open, $2.50/quart
- red raspberries are available for picking, $4/pint

- 🍑 peaches and nectarines will be available for picking mid July!!

We’re opening a portion of the red raspberries. The pints will be located at the raspberry patch, and there are signs from the stand leading the way.

The reason we’re only opening a portion of the row is because there is some poison ivy low to the ground in the back. There is an extremely clear barrier showing where to stop. And if you’re one of the few fortunate people who doesn’t get poison ivy, feel free to pick all you want 😉

I have one flat of red raspberries for sale this morning- 12 pints for $48. Message us if you would like them!

You still have time to come pick Rainier cherries for a few more days, and we’re opening the purple Hedelfingen variety on Friday!

Something I’ve observed over the years, is that when fruit is done, it’s DONE. It always catches me off guard. And nothing demonstrates this as much as cherries - one day they’re here, and the next they’re gone!

Strawberries are also available for picking, but they won’t be for long! Stop by this weekend to make sure you get some 😋

It’s a beautiful morning! We’re thankful for the sunshine, because the rain is hard on the berries. There are still plenty of good berries in the field, but since you have to pick through some that aren’t so nice, we’re dropping the price to $2.50 a quart for the rest of the season.

We also have a few red raspberries and strawberries in the fridge today!

🍓 Sale Extended Today 🍓
**READ ALL INFO BELOW**
In light of the rain coming tomorrow, we’re going to extend our Jam Session Sale through the end of today. $3 a quart for 10 or more quarts.

**VERY IMPORTANT!!!**
You MUST pick from the back of the rows! Everything in the front half was cleaned off yesterday. The berries are loaded on the side toward the highway. I’ve included a picture of the wall of red flags we’ve put in place to show where you should pick past 🚩🍓🍓🍓🚩

We picked several flats of jam berries tonight - 8 quarts in a flat for $30. Let me know if you’d like any, and how many, FCFS. They should be picked up Wednesday morning.

06/01/2021

Quick update! The BACK of the rows is by far the best picking. Most people come and start at the same spot in the front of the rows, so they obviously get picked through very quickly.

We do have our red/green flag system, but not everyone uses them. Trust me, you’ll know when you’re picking from a spot that hasn’t been picked 😉 you should be able to find a quart worth of strawberries within about a 3’ length of row.

Also, I don’t have enough “pick from this row” signs to open up all the rows I want to today, so the block of strawberries closest to our orchard may all be picked.
