We will be opening for the season on July 31.  Be sure to ask where the best picking spots are, they may not be where you think they are.  Also, be sure to stop at the shed to have your containers weighed before entering the fields.  Can't wait to see all our loyal pickers on Thursday.

Hello everyone!  We are gearing up for another season and all is looking good.  The bushes are full of green berries, but they are getting bigger every day.  They are so heavy that it is getting hard to get our small tractor through the rows to fertilize.  We have not set a date for opening, but are looking at either 7/30 or 8/7, but is all depends on Mother Nature.  She rules our world.  Hopefully we won't have any damage from all the wild weather we have been experiencing lately or get any hail.  Hope to see everyone real soon.

It's another beautiful picking day at OPF.  The back field is still very plentiful.  Hope to see you today, if not we reopen on Thursday, August 1, at 6 a.m.  Thanks!

A the sun rises over the mountain, we look forward to another beautiful berry-picking day.  The back field is still very plentiful with big, juicy berries.  No one will be disappointed with what they find.  The field is blue with color.  Hope to see all of you real soon.
Remember, we carry NO containers this year, so be sure to bring them with you.  Our price is $1.70 per lb.

What a beautiful day to start our 2013 season.  Nice cool weather that made for a great day to pick berries.
We awoke to downpours this a.m., but hope to salvage the rest of the day.  We are open and you can pick in the rain if you wish.  The weather people say that the afternoon should be good and that tomorrow is the pick of the weekend with temps in the low 80s.
There are still plenty of berries out there and we hope to see you soon.  Remember to bring your own containers as we have no pails this year.  Our price is $1.70 per lb.

We will be opening this Thursday, July 25th, for the season.  The fields are looking good and the berries are big and juicy.  Please remember to bring your own containers to pick in as we will not have pails to sell this year.  We open at 6 a.m.  $1.70 per lb.  All pails will need to be weighed before entering the fields.  Can't wait to see all our past customers and to welcome all newcomers.  Pack a lunch, sit at one of our picnic tables and enjoy the day.  Coffee and water available.  Happy picking!

After more than 30 years of purchasing pails from the same company we can no longer get our white pails from them.  I know this can be a hardship for some people if you do not bring enough containers with you and we apologize in advance, but it really is not our fault. 

I have done a thorough search on the web and the cheapest pails would cost us $2.80 and I know you can get them cheaper elsewhere.

So be sure that you pack the car full of containers before leaving home.

Still no date for opening, but surely the heat that is headed in this weekend should push them ahead.  Till then stay happy and stay safe!
