Good Bye and Hello!

Well, the Arapaho have given us about all they had to give for this first year, and BOY, was it a lot! We have had the most wonderful berries for the past few weeks off of the Arapaho plants! We picked the plants clean of ripe berries yesterday – over ten gallons!! – but we still have standing orders for almost twenty gallons more! Now it’s on to the Navaho and Kiowa, which interestingly are our smallest and largest berries, in that order.

While all blackberries are very similar – they are all blackberries – each variety has it’s own unique “showcase” quailities to offer. You can check out some of the differences on our “Blackberry Facts” page. The different varieties we have on our farm enable us to offer not only a variety of flavors and sizes, but it also ensures that our season will last long enough to give everyone a chance to enjoy some berries. So, if you missed the Arapaho, you still have time to enjoy the others…for a while.

Remember, the perfect berry waits for no one!!

While the plants are busy ripening more berries, we will be busy doing matainance chores around the home and farm! If you are planning on coming to pick, you may want to call ahead to make sure the berries have not been pick out for the day.

Blessings to you til we meet in the field!
