News from the Farm

We had an extremely busy weekend with U-Pick Strawberries on Friday and Saturday.  It was so busy, in fact, that we had to close early on Sunday because all the ripe berries had been picked!  We apologize if anyone had hoped to come pick on Sunday.  We will only be open on Friday and Saturday for U-Pick for the remainder of the season.  

News From the Fields

Field transplanting is in full-swing!  Matthew was out on the tractor until midnight last night prepping beds for more transplanting today and tomorrow.  It's a good thing that our tractors are equipped with lights for nighttime work!  There are never enought hours in the day for farmers. 

Galen is also busy helping out - taste-testing our strawberries and checking up on the equipment (see below).
