Blackberry season is finally here! We will offer pick-your-own blackberries at $4.00 / lb until around July 20th. They are delicious and abundant not to mention that this is by far the best deal that you will find on berries! This week we are featuring our Natchez variety which is our biggest and most productive berry! We will be open by appointment for blackberry picking, so give us a call (620)-381-6702 or sign up on picking calendar to schedule your time to pick.
We just finished strawberry picking for the season at Tenth Street Orchard!

It is a great day for the Tenth Street Orchard Vintage Market! The absolute best vintage, BBQ, and strawberries are in Sterling on May 25th from 9-3. We have a wonderful group of new & returning vintage vendors and the strawberries look extra good this year! This will be a wonderful event for the whole family, we are looking forward to having you out to the farm this Saturday! We have been so fortunate to avoid the rain and the farm is in great shape for the event!
Directions: The farm is at 510 W Washington in Sterling. From Broadway / K-96 in Sterling, turn west on Adams Street and continue to Tenth Street. Turn north (right) on Tenth Street until you see the red barn & strawberry patch. Parking will be available to the west of the strawberry patch.

Christmas traditions center around faith, family, and of course, great food. Here are our top picks for great local food from right here in Kansas. Support your local farmers and pick up something local for your Christmas & New Year’s festivities this year!
Fresh popped corn is a favorite treat at our house throughout the year. While Grandpa used to love popcorn in a mug of cold milk, we prefer it hot and fresh with a dash of Lawry’s Seasoned Salt and a generous helping of Hot Tamales. Try some fresh Kansas corn from Schlaegel’s Popcorn or if you’re feeling adventurous Papa Baldy’s offers popping sorghum!
2. Sterling Gold Honey at Smith’s Market
We love to see the bees visiting the strawberry blossoms at Tenth Street Orchard in the spring, but we love the honey that they make even more! Sterling Gold honey is pure, raw, and delicious! Find it in the glass bottle at the ever popular Smith’s Market in Hutchinson.
3. Sarah Jane’s Green Tomato Salsa – I am always looking for a better salsa, but I think that my search may have ended. After sampling some of Sarah Jane’s Green Tomato Salsa at the Kansas State Fair, I was hooked. The salsa isn’t scorching hot, but has a great balance of serrano heat and fresh tomato taste. Get it when it’s available, because it’s only made when ingredients are garden fresh!
4. Pedro’s Corn Chips – To go with great salsa, you need great chips. Don’t settle for a tortilla chip without any character. The best chips that we’ve found are from right here in Kansas. All the way from the southwestern corner of the state, Pedro’s Chips are grown from the finest food grade white corn and hail from the great town of Plains, Kansas. Not only home to the widest main street in the USA, but perhaps the best tortilla chip in the state!
A top choice for fresh and smoked meats, Krehbiel’s in McPherson has a tremendous selection of meats ranging from the traditional (brats and summer sausage) to the exotic (ostrich anyone?) but you simply cannot go wrong with the summer sausage and cheese gift box for your holiday spread.
Do you know of some great local food or a farm-to-table dining experience that we should try? Send us your thoughts and suggestions about what should be featured in the spring.
We hand-planted 3,000 new strawberries in preparation for next year! First-year strawberries will produce larger berries and a more abundant crop next spring. We are also planting almost all of our strawberry patch on black plastic to make for easier picking! We are excited about what’s to come in the 2019 season!
We have blackberries that are ready to pick and they are delicious! We will be open by appointment only for blackberry season, so give us a call and schedule your time to pick. The season for blackberries doesn’t last as long, so don’t miss your chance to come and pick!
