Share the joy
Being with your favorite people in the great outdoors and eating delicious berries might be just the ticket to make you smile. (We’ve seen some terrific smiles recently).
We are open for Father’s Day!
Make Dad happy with a great dessert that includes fresh picked berries. Nothing says “love” like a home made treat, especially when time was taken to pick the fruit! You can just bring Dad on out to help pick and share in the fun. Blueberries and blackberries are ripe.

During the evening pick (5PM-9PM), the GrayHill School Farm will be having a special rope and harness tree climbing activity. This is to help fund their mission of connecting growers with gardens. If you want to learn more about this farm school, visit their website at http://www.grayhillschoolfarm.org. Rope and harness tree climbing is a really cool way to have fun in the trees safely and at any height. It uses arborist techniques and gear. Several folks can climb at once, so it is really fun and it might be something you want to do with Dad. An hour is $30, Half hour is $20 and Quarter hour is $15. All proceeds go toward their mission of connecting growers with gardens and teaching the community to easily grow healthy food. Help support the local farming effort.
Thursday had some wild weather, but before it hit, several folks got some berries picked. We are happy to hear from repeat visitors and find that picking berries has become a tradition. It’s also great to see how much kids have grown from one year to the next. One family from California said this is a highlight of their visit each year, which was very heart warming to hear. We recently had a visitor from the Ukraine celebrate their second day in the United States by picking berries at our farm. She definitely wins for traveling the farthest!
Here are some photos of a few of the terrific folks from Thursday.
