We are open today, Thursday, 9-1 for black raspberry picking.  Additionally, we will have $5 pints of our late season strawberry for sale pre-picked, they are just starting to come in.  Today, even though it is wet is a good day to pick as temperatures will be cool.  With the heat wave coming, the black raspberry season will quickly come to an end, so don't delay. The picking today should be excellent, coming off a day of rest.  Please note, this week we will shift to our raspberry schedule which is Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday & Sunday 9-1.  A couple days off in the middle allows the berry supply to be very predictable for high quantity pickers.  Black raspberry picking will last through the coming weekend.  Strawberry picking is over now sadly.  The red raspberries unfortunately winter killed, but the roots survived and they will be back net year.  

I make regular posts as the season moves along so check back before making plans.  Black raspberries are $5 per half pint and $7.19/lbs PYO.  We supply all the picking supplies you need if you don't have your own containers.  Our strawberry stand where the raspberries are is located 1 mile south on RT 72 from the RT 4 and RT 72 intersection in Harwinton.  For those who prefer GPS directions, click on the big red strawberry on either the directions page or the home page of our website.  It will lead you into a voice activated option to take you to our stand!  Please, leave your dogs home during PYO season.  The are welcome on the farm on leases during choose and cut Christmas tree season only.

Thank you, Farmer Jon
