Blueberry Picking - Peak of Season s around the corner!
It is about to be a crescendo of blueberries. We are picking the Climax variety mainly at the moment but several other varieties are picking too. The picking is good to very good with picking time per gallon being low and improving. The blueberries this year were 12 days ahead of schedule! Centurions are coming on now and should peak around 4th of July.


Blueberry picking is fantastic!
Now picking Blackberries!

Blackberry Picking is Still Good!
It is you can't believe it time in the Chickasaw! The picking is very fast and oh so sweet. Still lots of Kiowa. The Von are coming in along with the Ouachita ahead of schedule I think. The Chester, our latest berry except for the primo cane bearing, are just finishing up blooming. The primocane bearing black Magic and Prime Ark 45 still have flora cane berries. The PA-45 are blooming like mad... if it stays cool maybe some berries by early August.

Eggs & Jams

We still have eggs and jams for sale on the porch. We sold out of the frozen blueberries and blackberries we had over the winter. Please let us know if you think we should expand the volume for the winter of 2017. Purchases are on the honor system if we are not there.

CAUTION - Please wear shoes with good tread.
Please no sandles or flip flops. The terrain is uneven, and in places, sometimes steep. Please wear shoes with good tread for walking around the farm. See our Picking Tips

Speed limit is 6 miles per hour....
For your own safety as well as others -
Please drive slowly and carefully.

BYOB – Bring-your-own-bucket
We love it when you bring your own buckets. If you have extra plastic buckets or quart cups, we would welcome these donations to the cause.  We can wash and sanitize them and they will be "good to go" for another round.

Parking Tips 
We ask our workers to park at the top of the driveway in order to save parking down near the old farm house for you!  That means that seeing cars at the top does not mean you have to walk in.  If we are really crowded we will have someone at the top to direct parking.  With that said, please note that trailers or RV types of vehicles must park at the top of the driveway in the first parking area.  They should not be taken down to the house because there is not enough room to turn them around.

Preferred method of payment
We love Cash!  We also accept checks, and Visa or Mastercard debit/credit cards.  We are hoping that you will all continue to use cash or checks as much as possible. 

We are now mobile-friendly!
On Saturday June 4, 2016 we posted our new mobile friendly website. Please bear with us as we iron out some bumps and links. Please let us know how you like the new look, and if you find any bumps! We would love your input.

Dog Policy
Please leave your pets at home.
We love dogs but it is best not to bring dogs to the farm. We cannot allow dogs in the fields and the parking area is too hot to leave pets in the car. If you cannot avoid having your dog with you, please plan for a member of your group to stay with the dog; stay out of the fields (no one wants berries that were...ah..sprayed); carry doggie bags for the unmentionable; and keep the dog on a 6 foot (or shorter) leash.

EGGS
Only getting about 3 dozens eggs a day
Please call first if you are making a special trip-

More to Look Forward to - Eventually
We have added Goji, mulberries and even planted more Persimmons. They have not come on-line yet.
We have also planted more fig trees since we seem to consistently have more demand than supply.
And, as always, we will be tinkering with ways we can lower our impact on the environment,
up our harvest productivity, maintain profitability so we can stay in business
and better serve our community.
Ask Walker for details and/or Stay tuned for updates!
