We are just picking our first Captivator and Fredonia grapes of the season, and will have them at the Harrisonburg Farmers’ Market on Saturday, August 18.  This will be your only chance to get Captivator, a sweet red grape.  We expect to have Fredonia, an early blue Concord type, for several weeks to come.

UPDATE 7/26/2018: ALL BLUEBERRY PICKING AND GLEANING ARE FINISHED FOR THE SEASON.  THANKS FOR YOUR BUSINESS!

 

Even though the bulk of our blueberry crop is over, there are still lots of berries on the bushes!  You are welcome to come pick any time from dawn to dark on the honor system.  The price is amazing, so don’t miss this chance to stock up on blueberries to snack on, put in the freezer, bake some pies, or cook up a batch of blueberry jam!

  • Upon arrival, look for instructions, buckets, and ropes on the side of the red shed.
  • Price is $10/bucket (one gallon). Please estimate for partial buckets.
  • Please bring EXACT CHANGE or CHECK as no one will be present to make change for you.  Payment is on the honor system.
  • Be sure to BRING CONTAINERS to take your berries home in.
  • You will find the most berries on rows 1-12.  Look around a bit to make sure you find the best picking available.
  • Come soon!  With each day the birds and bugs eat more of the berries!

Our blueberry supply is dwindling and our U-pick season is now over!

There are still some good berries in the patch that are worth picking, and you are welcome to come pick any time on our self-serve honor system.

  • I imagine the berries will last until around June 18, but with each day the birds and bugs eat more of them!

Thanks to all of you who came out to the berry patch this year and helped make the 2018 harvest a success!  We appreciate your support of our family business, and of the legacy of the late Samuel Johnson who planted these blueberry bushes and nourished the crop for over 30 years!

See you in June 2019!
