UPDATE: Sunday, July 5, 2015 @ 4:15 pm. Open today till 5 pm and on Monday July 6, we are open 7 am to 6 pm for the last picking of this berry season. We will run out of ready picked berries about the time we close this evening at 5 pm and that will be the end of already picked berries for this season. The berries are smaller at the end of the season and do not have the holding qualities of earlier and pickers need to be more selective to pass over the very small ones and over ripe ones. The garden style sweet peas are in today and we should have enough of them them for all day and maybe a few in the morning but the bakery and berry pies are done for the season. I will change the hotline message as supplies change and when we start to run low on peas.
4th of July: Open 7 am to 5 pm.
How long will the season last: Monday, July 6 at 6 pm will be the end of the season for this year.
PEAS: The garden style sweet peas are in now and we should have plenty for all day today and a few bags in the morning on Monday. This is the last load of peas in today for this season and I will change the message on the hotline if we start to run low. (920-887-7530)
STRAWBERRIES: We are open for picking at 7 am to 5 pm Sunday July 5th and 7 am to 6 pm on Monday. The berries are looking mighty fine this year but we are getting close to the end of the season so pickers need to be more selective now. I will change the Berry Hotline message as conditions and supplies change.
WEATHER and FIELD CONDITIONS: Great weather for picking strawberries. Dry and highs in the low to mid 80's. Plenty of straw in the rows.
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.
