Alzheimer’s Fundraiser & Flowers

My Mom, Jane Curtis, loved our farm – she helped plant most of our berry fields, planted the flowers and herbs with me every year, made beautiful flower bouquets for our farmstand (as well as for herself, family and friends), taught flower arranging classes for children, loved to drive the tractor, and ran our farmstand every year until dementia took hold. When she couldn’t live on her own anymore she wanted to live on the farm – and she did that for her last couple of years. If you have never been touched by dementia or Alzheimer’s count yourself very lucky.

In her memory I participated in the Walk to End Alzheimer’s last year to raise funds for the Alzheimer’s Association, and will do it again in September. At the same time, we are going to hold a fundraiser at the farm with 100% of all flower and herb sales for the next couple of weeks going to the Alzheimer’s Association in the name of Team Curtis in Mom’s memory.

So we invite you to cut your own flowers and/or herbs while you support the Alzheimer’s Association. Flyers with additional information about the Walk to End Alzheimer’s are available in the farmstand. Thank you in advance for your support.

At the same time, we have blueberries, all the colors of raspberries (red, blush, black and purple), and blackberries for picking. And honey from a local beekeeper available in the farmstand.

A Smogasbord of Berries

love this time of the season because we have blueberries, all the colors of raspberries (red, blush, black and purple), and blackberries for picking. A great smorgasbord of berries! And there are plenty of all of them.

We have honey from a local beekeeper available in the farmstand.
HerbsLavender and Flowers are ready for cutting. 

More Berries Ripening

We have alot of ripe red raspberries to pick. Our black, purple and blush raspberries are beginning to ripen. If you are looking for a large quantity of those, I would suggest that you wait until next week. Blackberries are NOT ready yet – I will let you know when they are ripe – don’t worry, we have a full crop of blackberries this year.

We will begin picking Blueberries on Wednesday July 3 – a good 10 days earlier than normal. We have a wonderful crop this year – the plants are loaded and the berries are sizing up very well.

HerbsLavender and Flowers are ready for cutting. In addition we hope you will take a few moments to enjoy our new wildflower meadow in bloom. The bees are loving it!

We look forward to seeing you at the farm!

Our Lavender is Blooming

Our lavender is blooming and it is BEAUTIFUL! It smells wonderful as well. Come on out and cut some – used in baking (Lavender Honey Cupcakes – yummy), bouquets, sachets and more.

Red Raspberries are Ready for Picking

Red raspberries are now ready for picking – almost 2 weeks earlier than usual. So sweet and yummy!

You are welcome to pick strawberries, however, there are not many in the field. We are offering quarts of pre-picked strawberries in our farmstand that are grown in our high tunnel.

We have many herbs and lavender available for cutting.

We look forward to seeing you at the farm!
