Hey Everybody!,

We're having a "Customer Appreciation Day" on Saturday, 8/17 from 10am-6pm. What does that mean exactly? --- FREE BERRIES!!  Yesterday was our last day for the season but there are still several hundred pounds of berries that we think are past their prime for eating fresh --- they will still make wonderful pies, jams, juice & sauce. Please bring your own containers if you come as we will be working on other stuff and won't be assisting you in the field.

A BIG THANK YOU to everyone that picked this year. Come & enjoy some berries on us!
