What We're Up To!


Final Day of Picking!
July 17, 2017

Tomorrow, Tuesday July 18, will be our final day of picking for this season! If you haven't gotten your fill of blackberries yet here is our advice: COME EARLY! A lot of Apache berries have ripened, but are limited compared to earlier in the season. We will close the gate if picked out prior to 11:00 am. I guess we will find out who the "real" early morning risers are!

Only 3 Picking Sessions Left!
July 12, 2017

Have you ever felt like something you worked hard at was suddenly out of your control? That's just about every day in the life of an adventure based on agriculture. I just don't know how 'real farmers' can keep their sanity! Sooooo......... The blackberries seem to be winding down much earlier than we imagined. 🙁 As things stand today, Wednesday July 12, 2017 we will have final picking the following days:
Thursdsay, July 13, 5-8 pm
Saturday, July 15, 7-11 am (NO 5-8 pm session)
Tuesday July 18, 7-11 am
Please share this and spread the word to friends who might be planning on coming to pick. The season is almost over!

Blackberry Status
July 10, 2017

Blackberry Status. We are nearing the end of picking season. If you are willing to go on a treasure hunt, you can find a Natchez or Osage berry here and there. Ouachita still has plump berries, but not nearly as many as last week. The photo is of Apache and is fairly representative of how they look (taken this morning). We removed the shade cover to allow berries to ripen, but currently there are more red than black. To summarize the above: We have berries, but the early bird will get the best on Tuesday, July 11!

All 4 Blackberry varieties are ripe!
June 23, 2017

These blackberry and lemon rosemary shortcakes were made by sweet little baker, 7 year old Stella! If you're wanting some of these big Natchez berries, you only have a week or so before they are gone until next year! Pick and freeze them now for your Thanksgiving and Holiday pies and jams! Our other three varieties are still producing happily!

Great Opening Weekend!
June 12, 2017

Wow! What a great opening week. Thank you for picking blackberries at the North 40 Farm. Saturday I overheard two quotes I have to share. The first from a pre-school child:
"IT TASTES LIKE CANDY!"
The second from an elementary age child:
"I'M IN HEAVEN!"
In our books, even if we only reach two children all season, the hard work is worth it. One of the primary messages we want pickers to go away with is that fresh picked ripe blackberries, along with other freshly picked produce, are amazing!

Our 1st berry!
April 18, 2017

There's a buzz in the air here at N40 Berries! We love our bees. We also have berry sightings! And look what I found pollinating the berries last night! A win-win situation.

We have flowers!

These pictures are of the pink blooms for the Osage berries and white blooms for the Natchez. Watch our page for continued developments as opening day approaches!!

Getting closer!
March 29, 2017

Do you see them? Look closely and you will see that our Natchez plants are about to bloom!
Bloom = Flower = Berry. That makes us VERY happy!
