Raspberries and Blackberries
Our berry patch produces picture perfect berries, as you can see from the portfolio below. We
strive to produce luscious fruit that is rich in color, sweet in taste and nutritiously wholesome.
Although, we don't claim to be organic our plants are never sprayed with chemicals. We hand
pick our juicy berries at the peak of ripeness to be eaten fresh, packaged as individual fresh
frozen or in bulk for use in pies, jams or jellies. Of course, the adventurous can pick their own
by arranging an appointment. Our berries begin to ripen the end of July and peak through mid
August. Frozen berries can be purchased as supply permits throughout the year.
