The Happy Berry

Last updated November 10, 2023

This Weekend and Next -
Still Lots of Persimmons!

These are Kaki Persimmons - Sweet, Seedless and Non-Astringent
Ours will not make your mouth pucker!
Persimmons are rich in nutrients and associated with so many health benefits that are too good to be ignored.
See our current newsletter for more on persimmons (and more farm news).

CAUTION - Please wear shoes with good tread.
Please no sandles or flip flops. The terrain is uneven, and in places, sometimes steep. Please wear shoes with good tread for walking around the farm. See our Picking Tips

Speed limit is 6 miles per hour....
For your own safety as well as others -
Please drive slowly and carefully.

BYOB – Bring-your-own-bucket
We love it when you bring your own buckets. If you have extra plastic buckets or quart cups, we would welcome these donations to the cause.  We can wash and sanitize them and they will be "good to go" for another round.

Parking Tips 
We ask our workers to park at the top of the driveway in order to save parking down near the old farm house for you!  That means that seeing cars at the top does not mean you have to walk in.  If we are really crowded we will have someone at the top to direct parking.  With that said, please note that trailers or RV types of vehicles must park at the top of the driveway in the first parking area.  They should not be taken down to the house because there is not enough room to turn them around.

Preferred method of payment
We love Cash!  We also accept checks, and Visa or Mastercard debit/credit cards.  We are hoping that you will all continue to use cash or checks as much as possible. 

We are now mobile-friendly!
In 2016 we posted our new mobile friendly website. Please let us know if you find any bumps! We would love your input.

Dog Policy
Please leave your pets at home.
We love dogs but it is best not to bring dogs to the farm. We cannot allow dogs in the fields and the parking area is too hot to leave pets in the car. If you cannot avoid having your dog with you, please plan for a member of your group to stay with the dog; stay out of the fields (no one wants berries that were...ah..sprayed); carry doggie bags for the unmentionable; and keep the dog on a 6 foot (or shorter) leash.

More to Look Forward to - Eventually
We no longer have the Japenese Mulberries (taken out by Sudden Wilt disease),
and the Goji berries did not work out.
We have added Giradia mulberries and Jujubes.
And, as always, we will continue tinkering with ways we can lower our impact on the environment,
up our harvest productivity, maintain profitability so we can stay in business,
and better serve our community.
Ask Walker for details and/or Stay tuned for updates!
