After evaluating the berry situation this morning, it looks like there are not enough to justify being open for picking anymore this year. So we are closed for the season.
We so appreciate each and every one of you who came out to our farm to pick berries this year. Without you we couldn’t do what we are doing! We hope you enjoy the berries and we look forward to seeing you in 2013, God willing!
Let the peoples praise You, O God; Let all the peoples praise You.
The earth has yielded its produce; God, our God, blesses us.
God blesses us, That all the ends of the earth may fear Him.
O taste and see that the LORD is good; How blessed is the man who takes refuge in Him!
If you are wanting to get some berries, now is the time! We are going to be open tomorrow, June 6th from 4 pm to 8 pm, and we have many nice berries to pick. We are also planning to be open for our normal hours for the rest of this week:
Thursday from 4-8 pm
Friday from 8 am to 1 pm
Saturday from 8 am to 1 pm.
However, please call before you come out to be sure that we still have ripe berries left that day, as our hours depend on the availability of ripe berries.
It’s looking like we will have plenty of berries from here on to the end of the season.
Happy Berry Picking,
So very delicious,
With a dark shade and hue
Of the juiciest blue;
Grown in big bunches—
Oh, perfect for lunches!—
You will try one and find
That there is no better kind,
So make sure to come
And pick yourself some,
Or they might disappear
Before you can come near!

The sky was bright and clear…a perfect day for picking blueberries!
A yard full of vehicles! Happily, we still haven’t ever had to park anyone on the road!
Hard working blueberry pickers harvesting large juicy berries.
Speaking of which, we really must show another picture of them. Now we all have to survive on frozen blueberries (still delicious, but just not the same) for another nine months.
A special thanks to all of you who came to pick berries here at Lost Branch Blueberry Farm this summer (many of you braved the heat, and some even the rain!) We appreciate ya’all so much and look forward to seeing you next year!
The blues are eagerly awaiting your arrival on June 18th!!
The bushes are heavily laden with luscious, ripe berries:

If you can find them, you can have them! :-)
See you June 18th!
