Plump juicy blackberries, tree-ripened peaches, raspberries, cherries and more are grown at our scenic Blue Frog Farm, 5499 Sportsman Club Rd. in Johnstown. This farm is named after a brilliant blue bullfrog that resided in the pond during the spring of 2012.
We had a blast picking blackberries today! On the way home we picked up some peaches, plums and melon at the market…yum! – at Lynds Fruit Farm.
Designed with u-pick in mind, summer fruits abound among the rolling, wooded landscape where families can enjoy a day in the country while picking (and eating!) the sweet goodness of the summer harvest season.
The berry patches are young so picking days and times vary greatly. The best way to stay informed is to sign up for our Cider Press e-mail and/or like us on Facebook. Go to Facebook for most recent posts.
As a general rule they begin to ripen in mid June through August. Exact dates and times will be posted as we draw nearer to ripening.
Want to freeze raspberries? Don’t wash them, just lay them on a tray, single layer and set in freezer. In 15 minutes you’ll have frozen berries ready to dump into freezer bags!
- Post your cobbler photos on our facebook timeline and pin them on our Pintrest Page!
