Late Season Cabot Strawberries are still in good supply
There is still a very good supply of Cabot strawberries available for picking.   We should have Cabot strawberries available until about mid June. Cabot berry size will gradually decrease, and the number of over ripe, mushy berries will gradually increase which usually means slower picking times.   For more information on strawberries see http://www.lakeview-farms.com/Strawberry_Picking.htm.

Peak raspberry almost here
Scattered red raspberry picking has been going on in the Prelude for the last few days but the peak picking period (June 10 to June 25) is almost here.  The lengthened bloom of all varieties means we should have some excellent picking into early July.  Good Black & Yellow raspberry picking is still a few days off. 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.
