Updates for October 2021

Notes for October 2021: Autumn is upon us and that means you'd better hurry to get blueberries and peaches; apples are already in full swing. Some crops continue until frost, like raspberries, blackberries, figs, corn and tomatoes. Check your area's crop calendar (see this page) and call your local farms for seasonal specific updates.

See these pages to find a local Apple festival, and other festivals. We have a guide to apple varieties and a guide to peach varieties. Also recipes, canning and freezing directions for apples, blueberries, peaches, tomatoes, corn etc.

See our comprehensive list of easy home canning, jam and jelly making, preserving, drying and freezing directions. You can access recipes and other resources from the drop down menus at the top of the page or the site search. If you have any questions or suggestions, feel free to write me! It is easy to make your own ice cream, even gelato, or low fat or low sugar ice cream - see this page. Also note, there are many copycat website listing U-pick farms now.  They have all copied their information from here and usually do not ever update.  Since 2002, I've been updating the information every day but Christmas; so if you see anything wrong or outdated, please write me!

However, we emailed asking about Friday and they gave NO indication that the crop was not plentiful and they might close. Nor did they tell us to call back later that week to double check. ASSURED us they'd be open daily 8 to 8. Then when we arrived Friday, after an hour drive, they were closed. We called, and they said they weren't opening that day - not enough fruit - would open the next day at 8 am (it was 5 pm). Didn't care that we had been told by them that they'd be open or that we'd driven an hour to get there. We were supposed to drive an hour home and then come back 14 hours later. Went to another farm this year."
