Webb Ranch berry picking

The U-pick berry season at Webb Ranch opens on Friday, June 4, and farm manager Atlee Frechette said appointments, which are required this year, for the first weekend filled up fast.  “We will be adding more availability as more berries ripen over the next few weeks!” she emailed. “For context, only four of our 57 rows are ripe.”

Atlee also let us know that new this year is compost made from the farm’s horse manure, wood shavings, and hay.

“We have composted for 90 to 120 days and now have it for sale (privately or at our U-Pick stand),” she says.  “We use it on our farm fields annually, but now it’s available to the public. We have given samples to our own horse boarders and local garden clubs with great feedback.”

The cost  for a two cubic foot bag is $18 or two bags for $32. Atlee’s sister Tracie is in charge of the compost operation and can be contacted for special/bulk orders: [email protected]

Webb Ranch hours of operation for berry picking and compost pickup are Tuesdays through Saturdays from 8:00 am to 1:00 pm. Book your appointment online.

The berry picking season officially opened over Father’s Day weekend, but because it’s all about when individual varieties ripen, consider it a rolling opening. In other words, even if you missed engaging in this fun family activity the past two weekends, there will still be plenty of berries to pick in future weeks. The focus […]
