Posted on Jul 01 under Crop Updates & Orchard Talk

The first weekend in July is looking like it is going to be perfect for pick your own fruit! The weather stations are predicting sun and some heat. Our strawberry patch at our M-88 Market is FULL of berries! The patch is very clean and the berries are sweet and juicy!

Pick your own raspberries are just starting to trickle in. The patch will be getting more full further into the week.The best time to come for raspberries is in the morning since they tend to get picked over by the afternoon.

The cherry crop is looking fantastic! We are looking forward to a great season. We are hoping to get a few cherries in our markets in the next day or 2 and hope to start u-pick cherries by the 6th (we don’t want to rush a good thing!). We will have our pitters up and running by next weekend 7/8 (if all goes well).

Pick your own tart cherries usually begins around July 15th. The trees are loaded and we are expecting a great crop!
