The currant picking season is rapidly approaching. We expect to begin picking around July 15th this year. The black currants will be plentiful, the red currants - not so much. Due to the extreme weather conditions we've had non-stop since last August, the red currant harvest will be pretty slim. If all goes well between now and mid-July, we will be adding gooseberries to our u-pick this year, although in very limited amounts. The price for u-pick black and red currants will be $3.50 per pound, gooseberries $5 per pound. U-pick dates and times will be posted in a couple of weeks on our FB page at www.facebook.com/coonsberryfarm
Another piece of exciting news that we would like to share with you is that we will be bringing pre-picked black currants to 3 farmers markets in the Detroit area this summer. If you cannot make it to the farm but would still like some black currants, visit us at www.coonsberryfarm.com/farm-markets to get our farmers market schedule, pricing and to pre-order. We strongly encourage you to pre-order your berries to ensure availability!
