PYO APPLES - Awesome Year! Click for Picking Conditions!

We currently tend 84 varieties of perennial fruit in the form of raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, peaches, plums, cherries, pears and apples. Our apples are set up for Pick-Your-Own harvesting and we sell them at our farmstand here and at several farmer's markets.

Blueberry Birding At Park Hill

Background Information

The blueberries look great this year.  You may or may not be aware that the biggest potential loss in blueberry is bird damage.  Birds see those little blue balls as a tasty snack, which they are.  Packs of predatory birds can easily eat 90% or the blueberries.  It is really a food chain dispute and we humans would like to claim the crop for ourselves.  Its a race to get the berries and, folks, we humans have what it takes to win!

Be a Local Hero!

It is estimated that the farmer uses about 20% of the energy used to produce the food in a grocery store. The other 80% is burned in the storage, transportation, processing, wastage and packaging by the distribution systems after the food leaves the farm.

Eating our food is not only healthy, it saves massive amounts of energy.

Since food production takes a large amount of the power (and water) consumed in the States annually, eating local food, grown and sold at a local farm, can save more energy than any other action you can take.
