Crop Report: U-Pick Blackberries
Thanks for checking in this week! We are looking forward to a beautiful weekend. Some cooler days will be so nice! Our pick-you-own blackberry patch is now open. Be sure to check berry picking off your summer bucket list!
We love sharing our farm with you! It's great to see so many of you out enjoying the Ohio farmland. There's nothing quite like a pie made with berries that you picked that day.
Here's some info about u-pick blackberries at our farm:
Stop into our Farm Market first to grab a couple pints or quarts.
We recommend bringing some water, sunscreen and bug spray.

If you're looking for some new inspiration for weekend cocktails, the Peifer Fizz created by Abeo Miller sounds pretty refreshing! Here's a link to his recipe.
We are continuing to pick peaches here at our orchard and will do so for another couple weeks. Our peaches are available on a limited basis in our Farm Market. Right now we are harvesting Red Haven and Raritan Rose. Give us a call before making a special trip for Peifer peaches!
We have several varieties of locally grown grape and cherry tomatoes arrived at our Farm Market this morning. Their flavor is amazing! Be sure to snag some of these while they are in season. We are loving these dishes right now! Links to recipes below pictures.
We've been eyeing the recipe for this Sweet Corn Gazpacho all week. Cold soups are definitely the way to go on these hot summer days. Link to recipe below pictures.
