      The flavor of the berries has improved but the field is still very wet. Hopefully the sun will get through and begin to dry things out.
      Meanwhile we will have some pre-picked berries at he market about 9:30 am. We are pulling some beautiful radishes and lettuce as well. We plan to have the field open tomorrow.( Wednesday) at 8:00 am.

The weather has not been good for strawberry picking. The field is wet and today the berries had very little flavor. Therefore we will not open the field Monday but Tuesday looks better. The weather is supposed to have warmer nights a couple of days from now which with sunshine is what we need to get the fruit back to quality. With the pre-picked berries on Tuesday there should be some spring veggies as well.

   The strawberry field will not be able to be open this Saturday. There are too few berries in the field but we will have some pre-picked berries. After trying to save some rows for Saturday it became evident that there were too few berries to have both PYO and pre-picked. The plants needed cleaning so the guys picked what was left as they cleaned the plants.
The cool nights have a very definite effect on the ripening of the berries. The low temperatures have slowed the berries from getting ripe as quickly.
Sarah or Deb will be at the market parking lot selling pre-picked berries until they are gone.
 The field should be open next week possibly Monday or Tuesday.

      This week appears to be a real shift in production. Many spring crops are growing and progressing.  The strawberry field will be open ( 8:00 am to at least noon if not longer) Monday and Tuesday. It should be open Saturday and possibly Friday and Thursday, not as sure on Thursday and Friday.   

      Strawberries already picked should be available later in the morning ( about 9:30) when the field is open.

     A very special thanks to so many of you who have been supportive of the farm. You have been a pleasure to serve. Many of you have been praying for us and we greatly value that.  

     Special thanks goes to some who have actually come along and helped to keep us on schedule amid difficult weather and limited man power. Mike and Stephen have been great help.  

     Thanks for your patience as we continue to get up to speed.

The strawberry field will be open for PYO Saturday at 8:30 until at least noon maybe longer depending on the condition of the field.
   Thanks to so many of you who have given such positive feedback from the berries you have had this early in the season.
    Sarah will be selling already picked and graded strawberries at market parking lot. So if you prefer you can buy them that way as well.
    Please know we are not able to take credit cards at this time. We strongly suggest you bring something to take your berries home in. We have plastic bags but a pan, bowl or box is much better.
    The barnyard is under reconstruction and encourage you to wait until later to visit the animals.
     Prices are $2 /pound PYO and $4.25/qt already picked. Organic strawberries are $5.50/qt.
 
                            
                  Savor and enjoy this special Easter.

Our crops grow slowly during these short, cold winter days. Due to this the Farm Market will be closed in January and most of February. 

We will RE-OPEN as the days get longer and the plants get bigger!

In January we'll be back at 

The International Culinary Institute of Myrtle Beach

at Market Common on Thursday afternoons from 1:00 - 6:00!

With the start of a New Year we're working on some new projects, like this High Tunnel which will protect plants that are growing in the field. This allows them to mature faster, so we can have delicious produce for y'all sooner! 

We will be back at the Myrtle Beach Farmers Market starting Spring 2019 - October.
