Peak Late Season Raspberries Now. With the cooler weather and nice rains, Prelude Red Raspberries are at their peak with good size and color. Nova picking has begun but its size is smaller than normal. A very limited supply of Fall Gold yellow raspberries will probably be available for early customers each day we are open. Fall raspberry picking should continue until we have a hard frost or the end of October, which ever come first.

As always, it would be a good idea to call me right before making a trip to the farm. Current picking hours are Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday from 8 AM until 12 Noon. Depending upon the availability of berries and the flow of customers we may make adjustments to our hours and days of operation but I will post this on our website at Be sure to enter our farm at the LOWER level across the street from Grace Church and follow the instructions on the white dry erase board -- call me on my cell phone (636-387-2695) if you need additional help or directions to the raspberry patch once you arrive.

Dried Gourds We still have an excellent supply of most dried gourd varieties available for sale. For more information on our dried gourds see
