Strawberries are at their peak

There is still an excellent supply of strawberries available for picking. Berries are finally well colored with the warmer weather we have had over the last few days and picking is good.    We should have strawberries available until mid June but peak picking will be over in about a week as berry size will gradually decrease and the berries will become more scattered which means slower picking times in the second week of June.   For more information on strawberries see


Prelude Raspberry
Scattered red raspberry picking has been going on in the Prelude for the last week or so but the peak picking period (second and third week of June) is almost here.  The elongated bloom of all varieties means we should have some excellent picking up thru the end of June...possibly longer.

As always early in the season,  there may be days when the flow of customers exceeds the supply of berries.  If you are coming later in the morning in the early part of the season, it would be a good idea to call before you come just to make sure that we are still have raspberry picking available that morning.
