Monday ~ 7/6/15

We picked today for Jumbo Foods on Willow in Enid. Brent is delivering there in the morning. He is still picking because the weather forecast says we could get up to 4 inches of RAIN by Wednesday!!! Wednesday I will be selling in Fairview again. It may be the last time there…


Friday 7/3/15

We are gearing up for tomorrow! Brent and I are manning the booth at Edmond Farmer’s Market. Hoping for a busy morning! Sorry to say we are not going to be at Enid Farmer’s Market. The picking was not as much as we had hoped for today. The upside is we had Wednesday’s picking SOLD to Jumbo Foods on Willow in Enid and a small load went to a bakery in Hydro. Everyone be safe and have a good Holiday!


Second Time Today

I just have to say THANK YOU to my hometown, Fairview! You all really make a girl feel Loyal because you are so loyal to us! Thank You!

 

Brent had a good picking that will be delivered to WholeFoods in OKC & Jumbo on Willow in Enid.


Wednesday 7/1/15

Today is kind of wild around here! I need to be heading to Fairview to Farmer’s Market. Brent has an order to fill for WholeFoods. There is a group of ladies coming from Vance Air Force Base to pick their own. Some of our faithful employes are here to help out. Should be a Fun Day!!

One of our favorite things to do with blackberries besides EAT them fresh:

  1. Cook the berries in a small amount of water.
  2. Strain pulp & seeds and discard.
  3. Sweeten the juice to taste. My bunch likes it SWEET. (1 cup of sugar to 1 cup of juice)
  4. Stir into the drink of your choice (we like it in tea, lemonade, & diet Sprite) or on vanilla ice cream.

Hope you try this and LOVE it!

 


6/26/15 ~ Friday

Today started with a rain shower just as the pickers were getting here. Some came back around 11:00 to help pick for tomorrow. I am dealing with the Jam berries (2nds), bagging frozen blackberries, which are available at Hometown Bulk Foods, and canning juice.

We will be at

Enid Farmer’s Market from 8-11 with Blackberries by the quart and jelly

Edmond Farmers Market from 8-1 with Blackberries by the quart and jelly


The first of many!

This thing called blogging, this is new to this farm girl. Very simple is the way life should be! I hope that this will help simplify my life, sitting down and typing out the happenings on this farm. My promises to any one who reads on a regular basis is this: 1.There are a lot of uneventful days, very boring actually, but a few interesting things may be sprinkled in. 2.I will keep you informed during Berry Harvest what is available, where it can be found, and when it will be there.

Brent is currently doing a job we have titled Quality Control. Description – 1. Clothe your person in very absurd amounts of winter clothes. 2. Sneak to the cooler so the neighbors do not think you are insane. 3. Spend 1-5 hr. looking at carton after carton of berries. This job is Not a favorite but definitely improves the Quality of our product.

I am to do steps 1&2. and begin packing our second shipment to Whole Foods Market. Delivery is scheduled for tomorrow morning.

 

Here is what is available:
