Picking Report

Sunday, June 21st

Mule Barn Berries is currently between seasons, and therefore will not be open for the next few weeks. Our strawberry season has ended, but our blackberry season is still a few weeks from being ready.

Raspberries are currently producing, but not enough to open for U-pick. We will have raspberries in July, as well as in the fall.

We do expect blackberries by the second week of July. Keep checking here to stay posted!

Monday June 8th

We will NOT BE OPEN this week for picking.  We do not have enough strawberries left.

We received 10+ inches of rain, closing in on 30" of rain in 35 days at our property.  That is just more than a farmer can overcome.  The rain and lack of sun has finished off the last of the crop.  

We don't have enough raspberries to open this week.  I hope that changes for next week.  They are really set on outside, but we need sunshine with no rain.  

Sorry for the strawberry news.  I know we disappointed a number of people with the irregular hours, but we just can't order sunshine to ripen the crop, and the rain destroyed all the outdoor crop leaving us just a little bit of what we planted viable.
