Happy New Year!

Its 2016! The months of November and December 2015 were kinda hectic and as one friend put it, “disorganized”. All us folks were going in different directions and that means all of the families – Oakleys, Taylors and Wises. But we are grateful to Holy God for another year that we could worship and praise Him. Other than delight and joy in worshiping our Lord, being of service to you gives us great pleasure and is very important to us. We thank you. We look forward to 2016 to provide you and your families some of His fruit and berries..

So we wish you a very blessed and good 2016!

Pointers for Farm Visitors

mmmWe want you to enjoy your experience at the farm. It does get warm working in the sun, so be sure to bring sunscreen and a hat. We do have cold water and a restroom available. Always feel free to pack a snack or a picnic lunch. We will provide buckets for you to use as you gather fresh berries. If you want to bring containers to haul your fruit home, you are welcome to do so. To make the experience enjoyable for other U-pickers and their children, we respectfully ask that you not bring pets with you to the fields. While we often think of farm life as idyllic, please remember that there are certain hazards inherent to the country life. As you are walking through the fields, be mindful of holes in the ground. We try to keep them filled as well as possible, but often times roots rot out or animals dig, creating holes we may have missed. In addition, critters are all around us, and while it may be fun to spot rabbits frolicking amongst the plants, fire ants and wasps are not nearly as cute. We offer these warnings not to scare you, but simply to caution you to always be aware. We want you to be prepared with as much information as possible to make your visit as pleasant as possible.
