Cherries, rhubarb, strawberries and currants are picked out for the season.
Please call us, 815-332-9696, for availability of the other berries especially if coming from out of town. Please remember if you call in the morning for availability and we’re really busy, we could be picked out by the afternoon.
Also please bring bug spray for you and your family.
We should have tomatoes possibly first week of August. Paula Red and Early Gold apples usually start by mid-August. These apples make terrific pie and sauce but are not good keepers.
