Today’s Farm News
Conditions for Sunday, August 2, 2015
Our Summer Farm Hours (which are different from Picking Hours) are open Sunday 8am – 1pm, closed on Monday and open Tuesday – Saturday 8am-4:30pm. Mary’s County Kitchen closes 1/2 hour before the farm. Picking Hours will vary throughout the season depending on the availability of ripe fruit so always check on the day you plan on visiting.
SUNDAY PICKING CONDITIONS: The Blueberry Field will be open for picking on Sunday from 8am – 12:30pm (last entrance 12pm). It can take 10 days for a blue blueberry to become sweet and we want you to only pick the very best blueberries available! Blueberry picking will go into mid-late August. The Peach Orchard is closed for picking on Sunday.
COST FOR PICK YOUR OWN: Blueberries – $3.99/lb. Peaches – $25 for 1 peck (10-12lb) which allows 4 people (including children) in the peach orchard. Containers are provided.
Today the Farmstand (open 8am-1pm) will have our own BLUEBERRIES, PEACHES, and SUNFLOWER BOUQUETS. We will have a limited amount of our own CORN today. Our bakers will be making Blueberry Donuts, Blueberry Scones and other tasty treats. We will also have local vegetables, jams, jellies, and honey from our beekeeper. Mary’s Country Kitchen (open 8am-12:30pm) will be offering Old Fashioned Strawberry Shortcake and Ice Cream. Stop by Annie’s Animal Barns (open 8am-1pm) to say hello to our friendly farm animals!
Parlee Farms is a no smoking farm. And for the comfort and safety of all our guests, dogs are not permitted on the farm. We accept Cash, Master Card, Visa and Discover for payment. Thank you very much for your support of Parlee Farms! We look forward to seeing you ‘down on the farm’!
Flower Picking: expect to start in early August.
Strawberry Picking: over for this year. Our late season strawberries will be available in August & September in our farmstand only.
