Late Season Red Raspberry Resumes

With the cooler weather at night, and nice rains, the Prelude Red Raspberries are looking good once again. Cucumber beetle and SWD damage to new berries seems to be resolved but customers still need to avoid picking over ripe fruit that mushes when picked . We had a light frost Monday morning, October 8, so berry freezing temperatures (<29F) and the end of berry picking are probably not far off.

Call my cell phone number listed below for current picking hours. For additional information see our website at www.lakeview-farms.com/LateRaspberrySeason.htm . 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.
