Thanks for a great strawberry season!

We just finished strawberry picking for the season at Tenth Street Orchard!  Thanks so much to everyone that came out to the farm, we hope that you had a great time and enjoyed all of the wonderful strawberries.  The sheep will miss all of the visitors but we are looking forward to seeing you back for blackberries in late June!

Strawberry season is here!

The strawberries look great this year and we are ready to open for the season! Our opening day will be Saturday May 18th from 8:30 – 12:00.  The next weekend, May 25th, we will have our annual vintage market!  The vintage market will be from 9:00 – 3:00 and we will have strawberry picking, live entertainment, craft & vintage vendors, and so much fun for the family!  We will be open for regular picking hours after the vintage market until the season ends around the middle of June.  Come out to the farm and enjoy some of the best berries around!

Strawberry Planting

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!

 

Last best week for berries!

We have some great berries, but we won’t have them for too much longer!  This week we will be open on Monday 6-8 PM and Saturday 8-12 for picking.  Just give us a call to schedule an appointment if you want to come and pick any other time this week (620-381-6702).  Hope that you can come out and get some strawberries this year!

 

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.

Vintage Market

We are excited to announce that we will host a vintage market on May 20th at Tenth Street Orchard! This juried show will feature a selection of top vendors with a wide variety of vintage, antique, home decor, jewelry and handcrafted items for sale. The orchard will also have ripe strawberries for picking, live music, entertainment, and food vendors. Plan on bringing the family out to search for treasures and enjoy a day of junking & strawberries!

We will post updates and feature vendors on our Facebook page.  Vendor spaces are filling up fast and we are excited about the quality and selection that we will be able to offer at the show! If you are interested in becoming a vendor, fill out the application page and we will contact you directly.
