We are getting there, but not quite ready yet. We are optimistic for an opening in the second week of July. Call in to the farm for the latest updates and opening dates. I'd love to hear from you! I'll keep the blog updated as well. Be sure to catch us at the following markets this year: Saturdays at Covent Garden Market and Horton Farmers Market (St.Thomas) and Wednesdays at Grand Bend Farmers Market.
We have definitely been busy this spring at Blueberry Hill Farm. James and I have hand planted another 3 acres of fruit. We've added a some red, purple and black raspberries, as well as blackberries to the Blueberry Hill roster. We won't have raspberries this year, but soon enough, my friends! In addition to the planting, we've tiled another 5 acres to make room for additional planting for the years to come. So lots of growth is happening here at the farm.
We are now in prime grass cutting season at the farm. Being organic, means lots of grass cutting! Most days of the week we have the tractor, rider and push mowers going.
We're gearing up for opening day. The bushes are loaded with berries and we are patiently waiting for the berries to ripen. We are aiming for mid July, but we'll keep you posted. This year, be sure to catch us at Covent Garden Market and St. Thomas Horton's Market on Saturdays, as well as the Grand Bend Farmer's Market on Wednesdays.
