Good morning. Doesn’t Mother Nature make you laugh – that’s all we can do.
 
STRAWBERRIES:
I am at the strawberry field this cloudy morning til noon. The berries are out there and we are contemplating more days. Shame to let them go to waste, but want you to realize this year has not been our normal year. Besides the size of the berries not being our normal, the weeds have been unreal! Strawberries like sun and warmth – weeds on the other hand will grow in any conditions.
 
For conditions and whether we will pick this weekend, please come back here, call the office 255-4563 or our facebook: Oliver Farms Produce – Smithfield, VA as I probably won’t have time to send the email this weekend.
 
MAY/GARDEN PEAS:
We will be picking peas this coming week. Gallon bag is 5 pounds for $23 or a quart is a pound for $6. Please email us at orders@oliverproduce.com with the best number to reach you. Not sure which day we will be picking/selling.
 
SWEET CORN, BUTTERBEANS, CROWDER PEAS:
We are currently making up our pre-order list on these as well. Please send orders toorders@oliverproduce.com. Prices are same as last and can be found on the website.
 
MOST IMPORTANTLY:
As I sit here typing, I am sitting with my sweatshirt on!!!! 
I can’t thank you enough for your patience and kind words as we have battled Mother Nature this year. We want to provide an enjoyable experience as well as a superior product. Thankfully as most have attested, the berries are their normal sweet self. Still, Jimmy and I can’t help but want all the stars to align! lol
