Certified Organic Blackberries

July 18 — Our blackberries are now gone for the year. Thank you to everyone who made our 2020 fun and safe!

Picking Blackberries 2020:

  • All picking this year is by appointment only. This will ensure that our farm is not too crowded.
  • To limit interactions, we are asking that you pay before picking. After paying, go to the field and fill your bucket, then go to your car. No more weighing fruit.
  • Our picnic areas and chicken-viewing areas are closed for the year. Please bring your own drinking water.

What you can do to help:

  • Wash your hands upon arrival at the farm.
  • Wear a mask when checking in and when near others.
  • Stay at least 6 feel away from others at all times.
  • Keep your children with you, and at least 6 feet away from others, at all times.

Thank you for your understanding as we navigate this new process. We hope to see you soon!

 How to Pick Blackberries

  • Pick the fattest berries, which will be dull black in color.
  • Ripe berries come off easily – you should not have to tug.
  • Look inside the plant and under the leaves as well as outside.

When You Get Home:

  • Refrigerate your berries as soon as possible. Blackberries are the most perishable of the temperate fruits.
  • Refrigerate blackberries in an airtight container with a paper towel to absorb moisture.
  • Do not wash blackberries until you are ready to use them.
  • Do not wash blackberries before freezing. If you do wash them, you can dry or freeze on a cookie sheet before packaging for long-term storage.
