Soon the strawberries will be ripening. We have a variety that does very well on the hillside and produces medium-sized sweet fruit. These strawberries will be perfect sliced over shortcake with fresh whipped cream or just on their own, sweet and juicy naturally.

As the season progresses the blackberries will make their appearance. The variety we cultivate is well adapted to the farm and produces large rich tasting berries. The farm hosts several bee hives that are located just up the hill from the blackberry patch ensuring very good pollination.

Down the hill a bit from the blackberry patch are the trellised rows of raspberry canes working on this season’s fruit. The raspberries will come along soon enough, delicate and sweet, they are sure to be a hit.

High Bush Blueberries.

And finally further down the hillside we have the high bush blueberries. Large and full of flavor, the fruit will be a welcome addition to any batch of pancakes or muffins. We grow several varieties ranging in size and intensity of flavor.

All of the fruit we produce on Wildfire Fellowship Farm comes along in their own season and time. When you have the opportunity to buy our berries keep in mind that seasons are short for each variety so stock up, eat fresh, freeze, make preserves!
