Picking Report

Wednesday, September 2nd,
We were hoping to open for some fall raspberry U-pick, but the fruit just isn't there. Come see us next year for spring raspberries in June, right after strawberry season.

Don't forget that we always have holiday jams and jellies! They make great Christmas stocking stuffers, also perfect gifts for neighbors, coworkers, and teachers. We sell by the jar or by the dozen, cups and pints available. The types available are:

-blackberry jam and jelly
-apple jelly
-apple butter
-raspberry jam*
-apricot jam* 
-plum jam
-peach jam
-blueberry jam*
*Many of our jams and jellies are by season only. We don't make more when the season ends. When we run out, we run out until next year, so don't wait!

Saturday, August 15th
Mule Barn Berries is officially closing for the season. It was a very short season this year, and we had hope for another two weeks, but the fruit is just not there. Thank you to all of our customers this year. We are so glad that you made time for some family fun at th patch this summer. 

Raspberry lovers should keep an eye out though! We may have raspberry picking by appointment only in September. We will post if the raspberries start looking good. 

We always have frozen A, B, and C grade available for pies, ice-cream, jam, and jelly. Pre-made jam and jelly of all different kinds are available as well! Email or call us to arrange pick-up. 

Come and pick strawberries, raspberries, and blackberries next year. Strawberries are early (April/May) and short (4 weeks). Keep an eye out!

Thank you!
