Its the last week of July but only the middle of the Blueberry season. There are LOTS and LOTS of blueberries ripe and ready to pick. Raspberries are done for now and the Kotatas wont last much longer. Triple crown blackberries have just begun, along with our first apples and plums. Blueberries are a long-season crop and good picking should be available til mid August.
Hood strawberries are still availabe u-pick, but are no longer available in our store. Amazingly, strawberries will return in August through October with Seascape everbearing strawberries which are pretty delicious. Raspberries and BLACK CURRANTS are now availble u-pick.
Amazingly, our corn maze is still standing...Read More
Its that time of year again: pumpkin patch season! We love October at Fordyce Farm and offer entertainment that's excellent and affordable. We have the area's largest corn maze, indoor maze, a huge hay fort, animals and hay rides. There is NO CHARGE for any of the entertainment, except the corn maze, which is $4.75.
We even offer already-carved pumpkins (remember, carved pumpkins only last about a week).
Starting October 13th, our corn maze is open at night, 6.50 on Thusdays with limited monsters, 10.00 on Fridays and Saturdays with monsters and scares a-plenty. The haunting starts at dusk and lasts till 10:00.
Apple season is hereRead More
And they should win prizes: Triple Crown blackberries are large, sweet, mild in flavor, and very easy to pick as they are THORNLESS! Triple Crowns season usually runs the month of August, but, like all other fruits this year, are about two weeks early. Peak season is here now and I expect Triple Crowns to be available till mid August.
Well, lots of them, anyway! Freestone peaches are now availble...Read More
Summer baking season is here.Read More
Ever seen these? They are black currants. They are NOT delicious to eat out of hand, but make absolutely superior juice and jellies...Read More
I love being able to offer unusual fruits to my customers. And what are these beautiful things? Pink currants! they look like jewellery, don't they?
Red currants (which we also offer) are very tart. Pink currants are light and sweet in flavor; something like pink champagne.
Then, maybe some pies. These beauties are apple/blackberry. I make more of these than any other variety because they are very popular and because I only use fresh fruit and apples are always available fresh.
We know have u-pick blueberries, kotota blackberries, black currants, and raspberries. They are all $1.25 a lb and are also available already picked at our store.
