Strawberries & Raspberries — Double Your Picking Pleasure.

Y’all! It’s that dope time of year when the strawberries and raspberries are hanging on the farm together.

Strawberries are entering their second week of heavy action, while the raspberries are just getting started.

There are some real juicy giants to be picked.

Our signage department is up to their usual tricks — just follow the “Orchard” sign to find the strawberry patch.

Then turn left where it says “Tomatoes, Eggplant, Peppers.”

Keep your eyes peeled for the “Strawberries” arrow.

Finally you’ll see the Strawberry Fields — but they’re not forever, just for this year. There is a new patch in the works for 2013, way up on the hilltop.

People have been going nuts this week, picking 8, 12, 16 quarts at a time!

Big Max let his pet human off the leash to pick berries, while he practiced his yogic tongue poses.

Meanwhile, up in raspberry land — heading north on foot from the parking lot — you’ll discover the early season Preludes in the top row.

Each one is like a l’il burst of sunshine. Come pick yours!

Last stop is the wagon by the road — you can use the self-serve pay box and supplement your haul with some of our premium pre-picked berries.

Cheers to you all, and see you at The ‘Creek!
