We thank all who came to our Mason Beach Fruit Farm during the past season.  We hope that you had an enjoyable experience.  For 2015, the farm will open about July 9 for blueberry picking using our you-pick/honor system procedure.  As explained below, all other fruit will be closed to you-pick, and will be available picked at the farm office.  The good news is that the blueberry crop looks promising, as do the Japanese plums, peaches and apples. 

 

The not-so-good news is we will no longer offer blackberries and apricots for sale.  The pear crop is in question because of a fire blight problem, and at this time will probably not be offered for sale. 

 

The farm will be open from Thursday to Saturday from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM.  We will be closed on Sunday, Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.   The closing time on Saturday may be earlier in the afternoon depending on fruit supply available.

 

This year will be the eighteen season that the farm has been operated by us.  As indicated, there will be changes in the way that we have operated. These changes are to reduce our collective workload, and minimize problems with tree damage and fruit loss from the you-pick and honor system operation.  The main change is there will no longer be you-pick with large fruit such as peaches, apples, pears, etc.  Thus with few exceptions, we will pick the large fruit, and have it available at the farm office for sale.  The schedule for having picked fruit at the farm office is to be decided.  Please look for updates on this web site.

 

Pruning of the fruit trees and blueberries are now complete.  Selective spraying to control weeds, plant disease and pests is in progress.  We acknowledge help from neighbors, especially Don who jumped in to help with cutting grass and clearing out the blueberries. Don and Laura have also assisted with spring pruning and fruit harvesting.
