|'Natchez' produces very large crops of huge blackberries, so there are many to pick. You can fill a quart in 5 minutes or less.|
Come during our open hours for summer: Mon. to Sat. 7:30 a.m. to 12 noon & 7 to 9 p.m., & Sundays 7 to 9 p.m. only. We're closed Sunday mornings for church (as we are year-round), and from June 1 to Aug. 31 we're closed from 12 noon to 7 p.m. due to high heat. (Please arrive at a time that allows you enough time to finish picking by our closing time. Thanks.)
You do not need an appointment from June 1 to Aug. 31; just come during our open hours. There should be a break in the rain here from Fri. June 19 on. (Check the radar for 4.5 miles east of Chetopa, KS before you come if you want to minimize chances of getting wet.) We got 5.5 inches of rain over the past few days, so rubber boots or other footwear you don't mind getting wet is a good idea.

For payment, we accept cash or checks; NO debit cards or credit cards. Please bring your checkbook or enough cash to cover what you'll pick.
Peaches will not start ripening until about June 28 or 30. We'll have harvested peaches for sale from July 1 to about Sept. 15, with the most ripe from about July 20 to Aug. 31.
