More Strawberries

Strawberries will be plentiful again this week. Currently, open Monday – Friday, 8:30am-7:00pm and Saturday, 8:30am – 5:00pm for both PYO (pick your own) and pre-picked berries.

“How long will the season last?” Is a common question. Our season is at least 4 weeks, but often 5 or 6 weeks. June 7 starts our 3rd week and we still have lots of berries, with more little ones growing. The weather can greatly effect yield. Some rain is fine, but a couple days in a row when it never drys out causes a great loss of berries.

Open in rain, Open Monday

The Strawberry Stand is open Saturday @ 9:30am, despite the rain! On arrival at the farm call 610-593-5656 to place your order, then drive up to the house walkway for pick up. If the rain breaks in the afternoon, PYO will be open. It will be wet, but shouldn’t be muddy.

Monday, Memorial Day, the Stand and PYO will be open 9:00am – 7:00pm. Come on out!

Lots of Strawberries!

This week we have lots of pre=picked strawberries available. Pick-Your-Own will MAYBE open this weekend… let’s see what the weather does this week. For the first time in over a year, we won’t be sold out by noon! Come on out.

Currently, open Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday 9:30am to 6:00pm, while supplies last. (If berries are plentiful, we will add more days.)

Strawberries almost ready!

We picked the first quart of strawberries last night for supper… strawberry shortcake. Yum! We expect to have a COUPLE quarts to sell on Saturday (May 22) and more next week, since the sunny warm weather is to continue. Hopefully, by next weekend lots of berries will be ready for pre-picked quarts. The pick-your-own fields will open in June.

OPENING DAY

Saturday (May 22), 10:00am – pre-picked quarts, $8 each… while supplies last


Next week: Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday @ 10am, whiles supplies last

Strawberries coming soon!

Strawberries are looking great, much better than last year. The cool weather this upcoming week will slow the process somewhat, but hopefully there are no frost or freezing temps (like last year when many berries were lost). We should be starting to harvest in about two weeks. Currently there are a lot of flowers and some berries starting to form.

Squash and Cooking Pumpkins

We have transitioned to a smaller, self-serve Pumpkin Stand (cash only). Cooking pumpkins, squash and a few other pumpkins/gourds will available through Thanksgiving.

Replace canned pumpkin with tastier, fresh pumpkin. It’s easy to bake pumpkin halves in the oven, then scoop out the soft flesh to use in your favorite recipes, or try something new! I love to add pumpkin to my regular recipes for chili, sloppy joes, pancakes, etc. For more details, check out the Cooking a Pumpkin tab.

More Pumpkins!

We have pumpkins! The season is winding down, but we have a good selection remaining. (Picture shows the latest load to come in from the field.) This weekend marks the last days of full-service pumpkin adventures. After Sunday, the Pick-Your-Own patch closes and the pumpkin games will be put away. A smaller stand with some pumpkins, cooking pumpkins, and squash will remain available through Thanksgiving.

Thursday (10/29) – CLOSED, due to rain & mud

Friday & Saturday (10/30 & 10/31) – OPEN, 9:00am – 6:00pm
