Conditions after 2 weeks of picking: fair to good
Post date: Aug 26, 2017 11:39:31 AM
As we approach the 3rd weekend of picking, we are seeing about 400 lbs per day registered at the weighing station. Many pickers report filling a 5-lb pail in about an hour, which is a very good picking rate. Others are not quite as fast but still satisfied with their harvest rates. Naturally, the patch is appearing to get increasingly picked over. There are still berries to get ripe and there are now berries that are over ripe, and berries at the perfect state of ripeness mixed in with those. We are going to ride this out until done. No pauses. Feel free to come out any time after checking the updated picking reports, either here or on FB or our answering machine. We will update as conditions change.
