The blueberries are gone!
However, at the stand we’ve got our yellow peaches, honey, sunflowers, tomatoes and jam.
You can pick your own peaches, not quite ripe, but a couple of days on your kitchen counter should ripen them nicely. Ask for how to tell when to pick, and directions to the one ripe variety.
White and yellow peaches will be available Tuesday and Wednesday. Honey, sunflowers and jam should be at the stand too.
Picking is not looking favorable for blueberries for those 2 days. There are more green than blue ones right now. Picking will be better by Thursday.
If wind and rain come – though it doesn’t look that way now!- we may stay under the tent but look for us in the stand if the tent is empty!
It’s not surprising that people would like to get outside, pick berries off the bushes and soak up some sunshine and many enjoyed doing just that this week. We’ll be open today, Saturday July 18, but think you will find better picking next week. If you come to pick be ready to hunt for them, looking inside and under the branches. Please bring your mask to wear and plan to keep your family picking together.
There are so many green berries to ripen in the next few weeks!
Peaches are gone until Tuesday. As the season progresses we should have peaches every day. It’s just the beginning!
We are so happy to say Doe Orchards will be open for Blueberry and Raspberry picking as soon as the berries are ready. It should be somewhere near the 4th of July. There will be changes made in the stand and masks will be worn but once you’re picking you should have the same wonderful open air experience as last year and the years before.
There is a great crop of berries, peaches, apples, honey, sunflowers and tomatoes to come.
Looking forward to seeing you!
Macoun, Empire, Granny Smith, Red Delicious, Cortland & McIntosh can be found on the trees, still delicious and firm, sweet or tart, rain or shine! We’ll be open for apples, gourds cider and apple firewood at the stand. For apples, 1/2 or full peck, we have Honeycrisp, Gala, Fuji, Cortland, McIntosh, Empire & Golden Delicious.
The Macouns are truly extraordinary!
