We had to shutter our U-pick operation last season due to the pandemic. I was afraid that our U-pick business might be over. Thankfully, that wasn't the case. We've had more customers come out this season than ever before. I worried about our future on here, so I wanted to share that it's still a success. We're limiting the number of customers that can go into the fields at one time, so we are still taking some precautions. We also ask that pickers wear a mask, and we haven't been met with any fuss over that. We've been lucky so far.

I remember that. You were thinking about pivoting. I'm so glad that things worked out for you guys! Business picked up here too. I think the vaccine played a big role in that.

Thank you all for the kind words!

I'm so glad that we didn't start delivering homemade meals. It seemed like a good, easy choice to pivot to at the time, but I'm thankful we waited to see how this season would go first. Something just didn't feel right about my other idea.

That's great news! I went to a strawberry u-pick about a month ago. We are going to a cherry u-pick later this week. This will be our first time there. I'm glad you have had success.

Yeah! That is great news. We are in the process of starting an apple u-pick farm. We have several nice trees, a lot of different varieties. I need to do some more research though. Kudos to you for your success.
