We are currently closed while berries ripen. The last of our late season berries are looking forward to some warm summer days before they are ready to pick. Check back later this week and see what our plans are. To those of you who came out this past Saturday please check out our post from 7/24 for a great blueberry pie recipe. As always we look forward to seeing you on the farm when the berries are ripe and plentiful enough to be open once again.
We will be open once again this Saturday 8/15 beginning at 8am. Come out early and beat the heat. By noon time most of the ripe berries will be gone. In addition to blueberries we will have local honey and eggs. The hoop house has been growing some wonderful tomatoes and other veggies. Come visit us on the farm.
Remember your water bottle and that all of our parking is on the grass.
Watch this space. We are currently closed while berries ripen. Check back in a few days and we will post an update and a prediction about the next time we plan to be open.
There are berries on the way. Hope to see you out here on the farm sometime soon.
The weather for Saturday is predicted to be clear and bright with cooler temperatures. We still have blueberries to pick. We will be open Saturday morning 8/8 beginning at 8am with plans to close things down around noon.
Come out to the farm and pick some berries. We may have a few treats from the hoop house, local honey and eggs.
Remember your water bottle and that it is okay to park on the grass.
We still have blueberries in August just not as many as we do in June and July. Which translates in to fewer days when we are able to say “Open for Picking”. So at the moment we are closed while the remaining berries ripen.
Please check back later this week when we will let you know how the berries are coming along and what a our plans are.
Hard to believe. July is in the rear view mirror. August is upon us. Come out early on Saturday and beat the heat. We are currently picking in the back field. From the relocated sales canopy use the blue gate which is just to the right. Walk along the top of the patch to the center aisle. You will find berries in the rows marked with blue flags.
Mid-season berries are ripening and the ones on my granola and muesli this morning made me smile.
We will have bottles of our local honey, eggs from our neighbors at Falls Glen Farm and a few treats from the hoop house.
Looking forward to seeing you on the farm. Saturday from 8am to noon.
Remember your water bottle, berry picking can be thirsty work.
If you bring small children, please remember our rule. “Take home as many as you brought”.
We will be open on Wednesday 7/29 from 8am until noon. We also plan to be open on Saturday 8/1 from 8am to noon. The weather forecast looks promising the mid season varieties still have berries ripening with each warm summer day.
This is the recipe I would use.
DOUBLE·GOOD BLUEBERRY PIE
Secret of the pie’s popularity is its remarkably fresh berry taste
Baked 9″ pie shell
¾ c. sugar
3 tblsp. cornstarch
1/8 tsp. salt
¼ c. water
4 c. blueberries
1 tblsp. butter
1 tblsp. lemon juice
Whipped cream (optional)
Combine sugar, cornstarch and salt in saucepan. Add water and 2 c. blueberries; cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture comes to a boil and is thickened and clear. (Mixture will be quite thick.)
Remove from heat and stir in butter and lemon juice. Cool.
Place remaining 2 c. raw blueberries in pie shell. Top with cooked berry mixture. Chill. Serve garnished with ice cream or whipped cream.
The weather forecast looks good over the next few days. We will be open in the morning Wednesday 7/22 at 8am with plans to close at noon. Come pick the berries that have ripened since this past Saturday.
We will then be closed on Thursday and Friday so that additional berries have a chance to ripen. We will be open for picking on Saturday 7/25 from 8am to noon.
We will have local honey, eggs and a selection of vegetables from our hoop house also available. Come visit us on the farm.
