Swallowtail Farm U-Pick Raspberries Now Open!

This morning we headed to Swallowtail Farm in Mason to pick raspberries. My friends Anne and David (and their son Quinn) own and operate this small farm. It was lightly raining when we arrived at 10:00 am but we were able to pick several pints. The raspberries are $2.50 a pint. We took two pints home but paid for four since Caroline ate about two pints while we picked the berries! The farm is not certified organic the berries are not sprayed with any harmful chemicals. To learn more about the farm, visit the Swallowtail Farm website.

Thanks for the heads up about this place. I'd love to take Ruby raspberry picking. We've got 10 bushes in our backyard, but 7 of them are new and our crop is small this year. Ruby LOVES raspberries.
