UPDATE: Sunday, June 26, 2016 at 4:30 AM. 7 am to 7 pm. weather permitting. (Open for U-pick and picked berries)
Conditions this morning, wet and raining till 9 or 10. We will be open for ready picked berries at 7 am and for u pick when people decide to come out but it would be best to wait a couple of hrs. after this rain slows down for a little better conditions.
Peas: Out now but I have large loads coming in today and tomorrow about noon each day.
We are approching the end of the season for this year so pickers will have to be more selective and the size will be smaller now but they are very sweet. There are only a few days left of this berry season.
Brat Fry is Monday June 27. 11 am to 2 pm. $1.25 for a brat and a soda and 75 cents for a strawberry sundae. I believe we will still be picking berries that day but we will have the Brat Fry either way.
We will be open daily for u-pick, 7 am to 7 pm and we have plenty of berries to pick for all day today. U-Pick will be the Jewel Variety today.
Already Picked berries.
We should have plenty of already picked berries for all day today but I will change the message if we start to run low on them later today. 7 am to 7 pm. Already picked will be Jewel.
More coming in this morning.
For employment in this season. It looks like we have enough help for this year.
4th of July: Open 7 am to 5 pm. Normal hours otherwise 7am to 7 pm. (we may not get to the 4th this year but probably to or past June 30th.
How long will the season last: Mother nature will tell us that.
PEAS: Usually start about the second week of the berry season.
STRAWBERRIES: Starting June 8, 2016.
WEATHER and FIELD CONDITIONS and General information: Good for today and the weekend although a little hot on Sunday.
Berry Hotline: (920) 887-7530
We have garden-style sweet peas, bakery (including fresh strawberry and strawberry-rhubarb pies), tomatos from Flyte Family Farms in Coloma, and honey produced by our bees right here on the farm and bottled by Stone Valley Apiary of Fall Rivers, WI.
In the berry season we are open 7am to 7pm daily, 7 days a week, as long as weather permits and we have ripe berries to pick. It is possible to be picked out for a day or early some days, especially early in the season (the first week). When that happens we have to close to allow for ripening. If we have a bad storm we have to close for a while. If the fields are very wet, then we might need to wait a while for drying (to ensure safetly) so it is always best to call the BERRY HOTLINE or check the update on this web site just prior to driving out. During the berry season, I update this site at least once a day, normally early morning. Later in the day, the Berry Hotline probably has the more current info.
