Since 2010, we have planted nearly 1000 blackberry and raspberry plants.  Berries are available for sale from July to early October (see chart below) at our farm in Carson Valley. Sign up on our Contact List and we will keep you notified with our Berry Farm News of what is going on at the farm, which varieties are being picked, and what is available for sale throughout the year (including frozen berries during the off-season).

All berries are hand-picked when fully ripe for the best flavor, texture, and freshness (sorry, no U-Pick).

2016 Season has Ended. Our 2016 berry harvest was a great success. Our harvest was nearly 3600 pints, very similar to 2014 but a bit less than 2015. We thank our customers who purchased our fresh berries and put up with those days that we had sold out. For the first time, we sold nearly all of our berries within a few days of picking...usually the same day we picked the berries. This means we will not have frozen berries for sale this year.

We continue making lots of jam and essence for sale. We make these products from the blemished berries that we would not sell as fresh picked.
