Dear Berry Good Friends,

The Chautauqua Hills Farm season is now officially underway!

We began picking Blueberries on June 19th. Here’s a picture of the blueberries we were picking. Pretty yummy!

Pick Your Own

The season will be extended this year into July 17th for both Blueberries and Blackberries due to the later ripening of all the berries.

Be sure and check out the Calendar for new available dates and then make your Pick Your Own Reservations here.

Order & Pick Up

Now that we have berries ripening up in quantity, we’ll begin picking next week for our Order & Pick Up customers. We’ll let you know when we have your berries available for pick up at Food For Thought.

If you’d like to place an order, click here to read more about Order & Pick Up and place your order.

Order & Pick Up at the Farm

In response to our Berry Good Friends in the surrounding towns closer to the farm, we’re now offering Order & Pick Up directly at the farm.

If it’s more convenient for you to purchase pre-picked blueberries and pick them up directly from the farm, send us an email here or call us at 620.249.3369. We’ll take your order and coordinate a day for pick up at the farm.

Blackberries

We expect the Blackberries will begin to ripen up in quantity near the end of June and continue for at least 2 weeks after that. Keep in mind the Blackberries need to be picked when ripe and they don’t last near as long on the vines.

We’re looking forward to getting everyone their Chautauqua Hills Farm berries this year!

The blueberries continue to ripen up nicely – we just wish they’d hurry up! We’re ready and we know you’re all ready! Last year we were already picking at this time, but this year looks to be a normal schedule where we begin to see the berries ripening up here in mid-June. Now, we just have to wait for enough to ripen to make picking fun and enjoyable!

These pictures show just how many berries we have on the bushes!

It looks like the picking will be getting underway next week. If you haven’t already made your reservations or placed your order, now’s the time!

Note: For everyone who’s placed online orders with us, we’ll be filling your orders as soon as we have enough ripe berries!

Here’s an updated picture of the Blueberries. They’re coming along nicely! We were fortunate to have the recent series of storms drop lots of rain on us while avoiding the hail.

As indicated in our last update, it’s looking like the first available blueberries will be in the first or second week of June – which isn’t far away!

Our Priority Customers were sent an email earlier today with an update, so be sure and check your inbox for that! (If you’ve been to the farm or ordered from us before, you’re on the Priority Customer list.)

We’ll be opening up the Calendar in about 1 week for all other Pick Your Own Reservations.

We look forward to seeing our Berry Good Friends again this year!

Welcome!
