Now is prime picking time for Raspberries! Don’t worry if you can’t get here for one of our morning picks during the week, we have week-end hours and every once in a while, an evening pick too! Please watch as our hours change according to weather and crop conditions! As you can see from the picture below, raspberries don’t ripen all at the same time:
This enables us to pick usually until close to the end of July. It also means that occasionally we need to close for a day or two in between pickings so that more can ripen. Mother Nature is truly our boss!
When you do get here for your raspberries, here are a few ideas on how to use them:

Another favourite is PAVLOA. We have a lovely neighbour who brings us farm fresh eggs and this is a great use for them!
Here is one I made last night….I might have eaten a few corners off of it before I took the picture. Today, I am going to simply mash up some fresh raspberries for the top and perhaps a little whipped cream too!
