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!

 

Strawberry Season Is Here!

We had such an amazing turnout for the vintage market on May 19th, we hope that everyone enjoyed the vintage vendors, wonderful food trucks, and live music!

The strawberries are now ripe and ready and we are open for regular picking! Our hours are Saturdays 8-12, Wednesdays 6-8 PM, or by appointment.  We hope that you can make it out to the farm this season to get some strawberries!

Tenth Street Orchard Vintage Market is back!

We are excited to announce that strawberry season will open with the return of the Tenth Street Orchard Vintage Market!  Everyone had such a wonderful time last year that we decided to have another one.  The vintage market will be May 19th from 9 – 4.  Stay tuned for more details about your favorite vintage & food vendors, great bands, and of course the strawberries!  If you are interested in being a vendor, fill out an application here.

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.
