We are well into the season at Border Country Berries and we hope that your summer berries picking plans include a trip out to the farm. Many of you are aware of the root problem identified in our raspberry patch last year. As a result of that disorder there will be no raspberry season at Border Country in 2015.
We expect to offer U-Pick Blueberry and Sweet Corn this year. Blueberry pollination is almost completed with the early varieties show a fair fruit set. Of course, harvest is still some weeks away; we'll post the occasional update here and on our Facebook page as the season progresses. We look forward to seeing our "berry friends" at the farm again this summer!
The sweet corn planting started on May 23 and was completed on the 16th of June. Though it is extremely early for evaluating that crop, the germination appears to have been unusually strong. The first of several hurdles in the making of a good sweet corn harvest.
It's our intent to post regular updates here. For instance, if the pickers have cleaned the bushes of ripe berries we will notify you here that we are closing for a day or two so the ripening berries can "catch up". We want your visit to be as productive as possible.
NOTE RE WEATHER: If thunder can be heard or lightning seen while one is in the berry field, then the farm will immediately close until those conditions are absent.
