Late Season Raspberries are starting

Prelude Red Raspberries are available to pick starting Tuesday, August 5, 2014. Because of the cooler weather during the bloom and berry formation period, the Prelude looks great! Berry size and color looks much improved from the earlier spring crop. Fall raspberries are normally less productive than the June crop so we will continue to handle fall picking in low key fashion: Customer self check in/out. Pricing is $1.50 per half pint and either cash or check is acceptable). Remember that our main farm land number for the berry season (636-978-8830) remains seasonally disconnected until next April. However, information on picking conditions for the current day, are available by calling me on my cell phone (636-387-2695) from 6 AM until 5 PM.

Early in the season it always a good idea to call me right before making a trip to the farm. Picking hours during August and the first half of September will be Monday thru Saturday from 7:30 AM until 11:00 AM. For more information on our late season raspberries 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 -- call me on my cell phone if you need additional help or directions to the raspberry patch once you arrive.
