Organic Olallieberry U-Pick
Dear Organic Olallieberry picking enthusiasts-
It is with a deep sadness that we have to inform you that WE WILL NOT BE ABLE TO OFFER AN ORGANIC OLALLIEBERRY U-PICK THIS YEAR.
Over the past few weeks, a particularly problematic fruit mold has spread through our Olallieberry field, resulting in a near total loss of our crop.
Unfortunately, there are not any effective organic methods to combat this type of mold.
That’s the bad news. The good news is that at this point none of our other berries seem to be susceptible to this particular type of mold.
Over the next few weeks, we will be trying to get enough of our other varieties put away for our jam, pies, cobblers and other treats, so we can meet our production needs for the Fall, Winter, and Spring.
If we can get enough berries put away, we will open our Organic Blackberry U-pick as planned in late July. We will publish and post updates as we make decisions, or have more information for you.
As a health-conscious consumer, we are sure you will support our continued commitment to using less toxic organic farming methods, even when it results in severe crop losses. Your family’s and our employee’s health are paramount to us.
We hope for better success with our Olallieberries next year.
Meanwhile, we will continue to have plenty of organic strawberries for you to pick through the summer. You and your family and friends can still enjoy a farm outing, pick strawberries and have a great day at the farm.
Swanton Berry Farm
Organic Blackberry U-Pick
We plan on opening August 5th or 12th.
