Closed for the season. Thank you for picking in our fields and we hope to see you all again next year.
Berry Season starts about mid June and runs about 3 weeks.
Waiting for cooler weather to slow down the weed growth in berry fields. Straw is bailed in large round bales and will be put on the fields in December or January for winter cover for the berry plants. New winter rye has been planted for next years straw. Rye straw because of the self weeding qualities of rye and it grows fast for a lot of straw very early. It is harvested before the rye seed is mature to try to keep rye and weed seeds out of the berry fields.
During 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 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 and if it gets very wet so there is a danger in going to the fields, we sometimes wait a while for drying or have a later than normal opening so it is always best to call the Berry Hot line 920-887-7530, 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 Hot Line may have more current information.
