Happy summer from Border Country Berries.  I would like to provide an update on what I anticipate for our upcoming season.
As many of you are aware, the spring season for the agriculture industry was a very difficult one across our nation.  Unfortunately, this area saw lots of rain that produced fields of standing water into the early summer. Therefore a very late start to our season.
That being said, our blueberries are looking promising and while it will not be a record crop I think it will be a decent one.  Harvest may come a little later in August than usual, perhaps; but I will keep you updated on that as the time approaches.  Our picking hours may be a little inconsistent this season due to some other responsibilities; I will do my best to keep you updated with those both here and on our facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/bordercountryberries/.  In addition, I do hope to continue to provide pre-picked berries.  Prices are still to be determined and will be posted soon.
I’m happy to say I was able to get pumpkins planted for our fall season as well.  Both miniature pumpkins and jack-o-lantern size are expected.  
Now for the disappointing news.  I am unable to provide sweet corn this year.  With the very late start to the season and the short season that we already have for growing in this area, sweet corn was not a possibility.  I know many of you enjoy our corn and I am truly disappointed that I will not be able to provide it for you this year. 

 

 

 

I thank you for your continued patronage and I’m looking forward to seeing you out at the farm in the near future and wish your families a very happy Mid-summer.
