MFF strawberry fieldsIt was a long, delicious season.  See you next year!!

The early spring brought early berries-- yum!   If you've never had fresh-picked berries, it's time to change that!  Come pick your own and find out.  We've expanded our fields and they're already full of luscious bright all natural berries, just waiting for you.

We use sustainable farming practices so we do not use any sprays or commercial fertilizers on our berries, which makes our berries ready to eat (or make into jam or strawberry shortcake or maybe strawberry margaritas?)

We're really sad to say it,  but we are cancelling Strawberry Fest.  The fields are already quite soggy and the forecast is for more rain this weekend:(

Weather permitting, we will open for U Pick next weekend, May 28-29.  Please check our Facebook page for updates.

 

Bruce, Rick, Sara, Snickers, Doodle & I all want to say THANK YOU for choosing us as your destination for U Pick strawberries!

Thank you for supporting local farming!

Thank you for being kind to the plants (so they can keep on producing)!

Thank you for keeping our farm and creek clean!

Thank you for spreading the word!

Middle Fork Farm U pick

Middle Fork Farm U PickWe loved meeting so many enthusiastic berry pickers, strawberry spread tasters and picnickers over the Memorial Weekend.   From what you told us, you were busy making a lot of strawberry pies and ice cream once you got home. And, of course, eating good ol’ delicious berries right from the bowl.

Middle Fork Farm berry picking

 

 

It was wonderful to see berry pickers of all ages, including a lot of multi-generational families sharing holiday fun. The toddler set definitely had an advantage due to their proximity to the berries (but probably limited by their attention span).

Middle Fork Farm creek

 

 

After picking, the  creek was a fun place to cool off.  Our creek (Middle Fork of Cunningham Creek) is quite healthy so we heard lots of shrieks and giggles as kids caught (and released) frogs, crayfish, and baby turtles.

 

Snickers and Doodle were much less active than the kids. They greeted a few early pickers and then decided to sleep at the check-out table for the rest of the day—we should have hung a "do not disturb" sign on them.

MiddleForkFarmSnickersNext weekend we’ll be sampling our brand new strawberry spread flavor, Strawberry Merlot (in anticipation of our tasting room/winery opening in 2016).

Weather permitting, we'll be open weekends through the end of June--check Facebook for updates.  We're also available for private pickings for groups of 10 or more on Wed., Thurs., and Fri.

Come see us, taste all our yummy spreads, and pick your own berries.
