Late Season Cabot Strawberries are at their peak

There is still a very good supply of Large sized Cabot strawberries available for picking.  The L'Amour Berries are still plentiful and well colored but their size has dropped to medium.  We should have Cabot strawberries available until about June 20.  Cabot berry size will gradually decrease and the berries will become more scattered which means slower picking times. For more information on strawberries see http://www.lakeview-farms.com/ContentsStrawberry.htm.

Red Raspberry picking has begun

Scattered red raspberry picking has been going on in the Prelude for the last two days but the peak picking period (June 14 to June 30) is almost here.  The lengthened bloom of all varieties means we should have some excellent picking into early July. Black and Yellow raspberry picking is still a few days off.  Our netting for the Black Raspberry crop is up and should eliminate the bird problem we had last year.  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.  For more information on our Raspberries see http://www.lakeview-farms.com/ContentsRaspberry.htm.
