Up dated: Monday June 26, 2017 @ 11:00 am. U-Pick and Already Picked 7 am to 7 pm daily. Weather permitting.
Check out the Christmas tree information on the tab to the left!
We are in the 3rd week of the Strawberry season and I hope to get to the end of the week with picking and already picked berris. Pickers need to be more selective at the end of the season but there area still a lot of good berries.
Note: U-pickers are getting out some very nice and nice size annapolis this morning and seem to want to stay in that variety because of it.
Peas: We are out of peas and they are growing slower due to the cool weather. We may get some on Wed. June 28 and than again, they may not be ready till after the berry season in which case we won't be able to get more. I hope to know more on tuesdy so stay tuned for updates.
U-Pick will be be open 7 am to 7 pm, weather permiting. I have two fields of Honeoye and one of Annapolis that I will try U-pick in Monday June 26, because I think that the pickers will have an easier time with it and the berries are extreemely sweet.
Already Picked will be Jewel Variety on Monday June 26 but they are doing a lot of sorting to make sure we have good berries for the already picked stand. 7 am to 7 pm. I do not know how many more days we will have picked berries but I hope it will go through the end of this week.
Bakery and Berry pies are in now.
Hot line: 920-887-7530
Thunderstorms will close us down for the duration of the storm and sometimes we have to let the access lanes dry out to get back in the fields so check for updates if there is a threat of rain. I may be raining here and not where you are or it may be the other way around.

Berry Hotline: (920) 887-7530
We have garden-style sweet peas, bakery (including fresh strawberry and strawberry-rhubarb pies), tomatos from Flyte Family Farms in Coloma, and honey produced by our bees right here on the farm and bottled by Stone Valley Apiary of Fall Rivers, WI.
In the berry season we are open 7am to 7pm daily, 7 days a week, as long as weather permits and we have ripe berries to pick. It is possible to be picked out for a day or early some days, especially early in the season (the first week). When that happens we have to close to allow for ripening. If we have a bad storm we have to close for a while. If the fields are very wet, then we might need to wait a while for drying (to ensure safetly) so it is always best to call the BERRY HOTLINE 920-887-7530 or check the update on this web site just prior to driving out. During the berry season, I update this site at least once a day, normally early morning. Later in the day, the Berry Hotline probably has the more current info.
