Raspberries: Our red berries are large and flavorful, freeze and jam well. Fall berries are larger than summer berries. Black raspberries are smaller and seedier. Like the strawberries, they need to be used within a few days of picking! U-Pick raspberries are $3.69/lb + tax.
Blackberries: Large and flavorful berries. Blackberries don’t get sweet until just before they fall off the cane. The flavor is amazing but they don’t keep very long. If you have never had a ripe blackberry you don’t know what you are missing! U-Pick blackberries are $4.39/lb.
Raspberry/Blackberry Hints: Don’t wash berries until just before you use them. These berries freeze very well, I recommend lightly rinsing, drain well, then place them on a cookie sheet in a single layer, freeze, then put in plastic bags.
To comply with health regulations: Please note that health regulations do not allow pets in or near produce fields. Please leave pets at home! In addition, no eating or drinking (including berries) is allowed in the produce fields. Eating and drinking allowed in designated areas only. Berry pickers will be expected to wash hands before entering the field.
