Monday 9-7

HOURS AND CONDITIONS: Still lots of beautiful, easy berries to pick! The field is open today 9am-7pm. The field is currently dry but rains are forecast again for tomorrow and I want to get as many picked today as possible. Strawberries don’t last all summer – get them now!

I am anticipating 9am-7pm today – Thursday. Weekend hours to come as we get closer.

JAMMIN’ BERRIES TOO!: If you have been waiting to make jam – this is the week. We are seeing small berries left behind by those who favor only the larger ones. With tomorrow afternoon forecast of rain, what better way to spend the day than making jam from berries picked today!

CONTAINERS: We have 2 and 4 quart containers at the field. RE-USE them and we will donate to the Latimer jar or give to you.

PRE-PICKED: This year’s incredible yield has allowed us to usually have basket available when you drive up but we still appreciate an ‘order’ ahead of time if you know you are headed our way just in case. If you pre-order (255-4563) specify if you are making jam and leave a quantity and phone number. I am in and out of the office during the day.

DONATIONS: The Latimer jar will remain on the table throughout the season. You have been most generous and I know the family will be appreciative of all that is included.


About Oliver Farms Produce

Located in Smithfield, Oliver Farms, LLC is a working row crop farm with fresh summer produce sold on site as Oliver Farm Produce. We begin each produce year with strawberries in late April while the planting of our summer produce is just beginning. In late June through August we open the door to the "strawberry shack" where we have produce fresh picked daily: sweet corn, butterbeans, edamame and crowder peas. Fall/Thanksgiving and Christmas we re-open the shack where we will sell: collards, cabbage, broccoli, brussel sprouts and kale - cut the same day you pick up!! Customers can pre-order by emailing:
