Dear U-Pick Friends,
It is almost u-pick season, our first red raspberry patch looks very healthy and is starting to flower. Our first
blueberry patch is in full bloom and looks like it will be a beautiful crop. That is a huge sweet berry called Duke.
There will be lots of peaches this year. We have a relatively new peach called Glenglo. This early variety is a free
stone peach that is extra sweet and flavorful, you don’t want to miss this one! Glenglo should be available the last
week of July. Our Red Haven peaches should be ready the first week of August.
It looks like we will have a nice crop of all apple varieties, Honey Crisp should be ready to pick early September.
