Summary

What a winter for the Eastern Shore of Virginia and our fruit farm!  See photos below.  Our pruning activities are on hold until day temperatures get above 45F and those at night do not get much below 32.

We thank all who came to our fruit farm during the 2014 season.  We hope that you had an enjoyable experience.  Our plans are to reopen for the 2015 season.  More information will be available in April.

 

 

 

 

Background

 

Last year (2014) was the seventeenth season that the farm has been operated by us.  There were changes in the way that we operate which will be continued in 2015. The reasons for these changes are to reduce our collective workload, minimize problems with tree damage and reduce fruit loss from the you-pick and honor system operations.  The main change is customers will no longer be able to pick large fruit such as peaches, apples, pears, etc.  Thus with few exceptions, we will pick the large fruit, and have it available at the farm office for sale.  The schedule for having picked fruit at the farm office is to be decided.  Look for updates on this web site.

 

We acknowledge help from neighbors, friends and Foster family members-- especially Don who jumped in to help with cutting grass and clearing out the blueberries. Don and Laura have also assisted with spring pruning and fruit harvesting.
