Mid-Summer Break

The farm market will be closed until August 18, 2014.  We do not have anything for upick until apples season.  We will reopen in August with lots of great fruits and veggies including pickles, peaches and tomatoes!  If there is anything you need in the meantime, please do not hesitate to call!  We will still be working around the farm, preparing for our Fall season!  So if you feel the need to bake a pie, give us a call and we will set up a pick up time!  Thanks again for your continued support!  See you in a few weeks!

It’s cherry pickin time!

We are just at the beginning of our cherry season!  Strawberries are coming to the end.  We hope to have sweet cherries for the next two weeks but given all the rain and heat lately things could move along quickly.   please always call ahead before coming out for upick.  Don’t forget about all of our other goodies too….donuts, pies, cookies, turnovers, ice Cream and slushies!  We also offer pulled pork and tomato basil soup Thursday – Saturday!  Thanks again and we look forward to seeing you soon!

Strawberries!

We are now picking strawberries for the 2014 season!  While they are beautiful berries, they have not been overly plentiful due to the cool weather.  We hope to be in full swing the end of this week and continue to pick through the fourth of July.  Please note that this is all weather dependent!  Our upick patch will hopefully open this weekend.  So fingers crossed for the warmer weather and a little rain for he plants to drink too!  Stay tuned.  Please call the barn @ 784-0058 to place orders for already-picked berries or to see if our upick is open and available picking times.

Strawberry update!

Can you believe it is June already?!  Hasn’t really felt like it until recently but not to worry everything on the farm is growing along wonderfully!  We typically start the strawberry season around the 10th of June, however, due to the cooler than normal spring we’ve experienced the growing season is about a week behind.  We are asking everyone to check back with us around the 15th of June and hope to be picking by the 20th of June.  We are anxiously waiting for some yummy Michigan fruit!  We do still have asparagus available and will hopefully have some other fresh veggies soon!  Thanks again and We look forward to seeing you soon!

 

Asparagus is here!

We are excited to announce We are open for the 2014 season!  We currently have fresh, local asparagus and rhubarb.  If you are looking for large quantities of either please call ahead to order.  Due to the cool spring weather, things are growing but it’s a little on the slow side!  With that in mind, We are thinking that strawberries will be about 10 days late this year, potential start date around June 20th.  Stay tuned for further updates!
