We will not be open Mon-Weds July 6-8, as there are no fresh berries to pick yet, and Tuesday & Wednesday look like being wet. We think we might have some summer raspberries starting Thursday July 9 and aim to open that day. When we are open our hours are 10-6.
Blueberries ripen in late July and go through Labor Day. Fall raspberries will ripen in late August (looks like it will be a strong crop) and they continue well into October. We have a new, small planting of fall blackberries that should give us a crop in September.
Please call ahead for picking conditions 802-767-3989–we will update the phone message at the farm every day starting 7/4. Also, please note that Route 100 in Hancock will be closed July 8-10 for bridge repairs so it will not be possible to approach the farm from the north for those three days. Please come via Rochester village July 9 & 10.
We have our raw honey, jam, and maple syrup for sale at the farm. These products are not certified organic, although all ingredients in the jam are certified organic save for the Pomona’s fruit pectin (made from lemon peel), and the honey is raw and unfiltered, and the bees are kept well away from any spraying or GMO crops.
During the season, do check out our blog for updates and other important information. Or drop by for a coffee or tea, a jam sample, or just to take in the beauty of this corner of the valley on a gorgeous day and say hello. We have coffee and free Wi-Fi.
