2020 Strawberry Season

We had high hopes for this season, but despite our best efforts to protect the crop a hard freeze in late April ended up taking almost all of our berries.  Sadly, we will not be open for pick-your-own strawberries this year.  We miss seeing each of you at the farm and really wish that we had berries for you.  Thanks so much for your support and understanding, we hope to try again next year!

 

Sweet corn

We have been farming all summer long and have sweet corn that is ready this week only!  It is delicious, fresh and will not be here for long.  We are selling all of our sweet corn $6 for a baker’s dozen (13 ears).  Call 620-381-6702 to reserve your corn today and we will arrange a time for pick-up.  d12b66a5-4a72-4906-9e5e-e3fa73a701d8

 

Blackberries are here!

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!

National Strawberry Day

Celebrating National Strawberry Day by uncovering the first berries of the season!  We covered them up last fall with a row cover and straw to protect them from the winter cold.

We typically wait a little longer to remove the row covers and straw, but given that it is #NationalStrawberryDay we thought it would be fitting to start today.  We’ll keep slowly removing the straw from the rows over the next few weeks as spring arrives.

It’s always so exciting to look underneath the straw for the first time in the spring, from what we saw today it looks like the row covers and straw protected them well through the winter! The berries look good at this stage and we’re excited to see them continue to grow through the spring.

Welcome!

We are looking forward to bringing fresh strawberries & blackberries to central Kansas this summer!  We planted 2,000 strawberry and 25 bare-root blackberry plants in spring 2016 and have worked hard to nurture them through the first growing season.  This spring we hope to see the fruits of our labors and plan to open the berry patch this May for pick-your-own strawberries and blackberries.

We are thankful for this opportunity to produce fresh, local, and delicious berries.
