Our FINAL open picking session for 2020 is Wednesday, July 15, 7 - 10 am or until picked out, whichever comes first. It's been a crazy year with late freezes, wild temperature fluctuations and ripening of fruit. We hope you have managed to enjoy a few blackberries and look forward to seeing you in 2021!👩🌾👨🌾

Our thornless blackberries are grown in rows and trellis-trained for easy picking. We mow between rows and around the field, and have not experienced any problems with ticks or chiggers.
Blackberries are perishable and need to be refrigerated as soon as possible after picking. A general rule of thumb is to use them within 5 days when properly stored. Of course, they freeze well for later use too.
Blackberries do not ripen after they are picked and have a fairly short shelf life. The berries available in the grocery store are specific varieties chosen for their shipping durability. Our blackberry varieties were purposely selected for their size and AMAZING flavor.
We anticipate our picking season to start early June and run 5-6 weeks. Check this site, our Facebook page, our Instagram site, or give us a call at 405-385-9386 for updates regarding opening day and picking days & times (based on availability of ripe berries).
