A GOOD PICKING DAY starts with a few simple instructions:
Tips for Picking Blackberries:
Fully ripe berries are the sweetest. These are the berries which have become shiny black and plump. They should detach easily from the plant with a simple twisting motion. Often there are nice big berries deeper in the plants that have been overlooked by others. Look in the shadows and down low to find hidden treasures missed by others.
If you have brought your children to enjoy the experience, please keep them with you and be sure to get some good pictures!
The plants are thornless and easy to pick from, but there are vines and ruts and tripping is possible. No running please.
Weigh your empty containers when you check in prior to picking (or borrow a container from us) and when you are finished return to have them weighed again and check out.
We hope you have a wonderful time and that you will come back again soon!
