Harvest is upon us here at Elderslie. 11 months we have waited for these boisterous plants to prepare themselves again for this rite of summer.
We have a good 7-10 more days to wait, but the berries are sizing in the heat and starting to turn from green to red in the first little pockets. Picking will be 6 mornings a week by reservation through our website. Below is our anticipated schedule. We may open picking early if something changes, but for now this is what we anticipate.
June 16th 8:00am – Picking Reservations open for week of 6/19-6/24
June 19 – First You-Pick Day!
June 23 8:00am – Picking Reservations open for week of 6/26-7/1
Reservations will continue to open Friday mornings for the following week
July 15 or possibly July 22 depending on weather – Last day of You-Pick
We try to accurately schedule our harvest so the fields are never crowded and so everyone gets to pick the pails they signed up for. We will do the best we can so each guest has a lovely outing in the bramble.
In case of inclement weather we may cancel you-pick. Please check our Facebook Page for weather cancellations.
Our brambles are a joyous part of our summer season and we are excited to share the joy with each picker, young or old. We hope to see you in the bramble!
