 The strawberries are really good right now. This hot weather is stressing the plants some but the fruit now is very good. If you are able to pick now is a good time. At $1.30 /lb that is a great price. The average PYO price for the Carolinas is $1.80/lb. Dr. John Gurstner used to talk about selling produce at the best quality for the best price. I believe we are doing that.

   Blueberries are showing the first bit of color. The high bush berries should begin ripening in about 10 to 14 days, maybe earlier with this change in weather. PYO blueberries still look like mid June.

For all who need a later time frame to pick strawberries during the week, try Wednesday. This Wednesday we will push to stay open until 6:30. Should you not get here by that time call to see if we can work you in. We are trying to help those whose work schedules don't allow them the opportunity during other times. If we get a good response, it will help us to know better how meet this need in the future.

 Yes the strawberry field is open Monday-Saturday unless otherwise posted. The field looks good and the berries are geting sweeter with the warmer sunny days. We are thinking that we may have a day we stay open longer so some of you can get here after your regular work hours. A day in the middle of the week appears likely. It will be announced. 

   Garden peas, snow peas , kale and greens are looking good. Organic lettuce, salanova ( a new type of bagged lettuce), organic broccoli, ,cabbage, chard look good as well. It may be wise to call ahead for the organic veggies so we can hold your order.

  Now, don't get too excited but the squash is getting close to being ready.

Don't worry they are good no matter what you call them!

The season is still young. The plants are unstressed , blooming and have lots of green fruit. The weather has been the hardest part of this year's crop. There is a an abundance of fruit. If the weather doesn't turn sharply into extreme heat we should have fruit throughout the month.

The fields will open every day Monday through Saturday weather permitting. Thanks,yum Sam

The Strawberry Field will be closed Monday but we hope to open Tuesday at 8 AM.
  Thank you all for being patient last week with the berries needing to ripen. Thank you for being pleasant and good pickers Saturday with so many people coming and going.

The field is really affected by this unsesaonable weather. Due to the slow ripening we will close the field at noon Wednesday and give the berries more time to ripen. We plan to be open Saturday and will see about Friday?

 We do have plenty of berries at the market.

Thanks, Sam

    The Strawberry field should be open everyday ( except Sunday ) at 8 am until around 3:30 to 5 pm depending. The berries look really good and the picking is easy. The fruit looks like it will be exceptionally good as the plants are in good shape, blooms and green fruit abound.

    Other Prime items... organic lettuce, organic broccoli, organic arugula, asparagus, greens, garden peas just beginning.
