Natchez berries are beginning to ripen so we are expecting to open the 2024 season sometime in the first week of June. We will post the specific opening date here when we know it.

Unfortunately, our entire email list for the N40 Newsletter was lost. If you want to be on the e-mailing list please sign up again below.


What's new in 2024:

For several reasons we removed both the Apache and Ouachita varieties this past year, and they will be replaced with new Natchez and Osage plants this May.

Locally Grown Vine-Ripened blackberries


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).



About Our Farm


North 40 Berries is a family owned and operated business. We began in 2015 with the planting of 800 thornless blackberry seedlings. The plants grew well, so 2016 was the first year for actual berry production. In 2021 we added an additional 700+ plants.

We currently have four different varieties of blackberries that vary somewhat in berry size, sweetness, and ripening times. Natchez ripens earliest (early June) and has large berries but may be slightly less sweet than the other varieties. Osage is a smaller, sweeter berry and ripens a few days later. Ponca and Caddo varieties ripen about a week later than Natchez and Osage. Caddo berries are sweet like Osage but are larger. Ponca berries are mid-sized but are very sweet.
