A large quantity of blueberries was picked today in our old variety block, but significant pickings were also made in our two Northland blocks. Although most of the berries in our old block are ripe, the moderate temperatures over the coming days means that the quality of this fruit will be maintained for the next week at least and we hope for the following week also. There are some bushes in our old block that have unripe fruit at the moment which will help us maintain some supply until the end of January, but we will update the situation next weekend. Fruit ripe on our Northland and Caroline varieties now, will maintain their quality and increase their sweetness for the next couple of weeks.
Overall we hope and expect to have fruit for picking until the end of January.
The farm is closed on Monday 18th, Tuesday 19th and Wednesday 20th. We re-open on Thursday 21st.
We take the precautions recommended and mandated by the Chief Health Officer seriously and we expect our customers to do so also. Those who do not will be required to leave the farm. Although the risk may be slight on the farm, we have customers from all sorts of work places, and who travel both interstate and overseas for their work and we wish to ensure everyone’s safety.
