Happy Pre-July 4th!!

Many of you I am sure will be busy enjoying the celebrations today and Tuesday. I am currently updating our spreadsheet with orders and wanted to make sure you get on our pre-order list. So…….
SWEET CORN, BUTTERBEANS, CROWDER PEAS, SNAPS/GREENBEANS:
Sweet corn is loving all the rain. We have 3 fields that are coming along nicely. We anticipate beginning to pick mid-late July. We are still taking pre-orders at orders@oliverproduce.com. Butterbeans and crowders will probably be August. Snaps are cracking the ground!
Please include your name, product, quantity and best phone number to contact once we harvest.
We call and schedule sweet corn because we pull that early the morning you plan to pickup.
SAUSAGE:
We have a running pre-order list for making. Rainy weather, and a certain poundage on the list, has us making sausage even in the summer months. So, don’t be afraid to pre-order anytime of year.
SOLAR FARM:
We are now offering field trip opportunities for school group, scouts, youth or any interested groups that are curious about our venture with Dominion Energy. Please share with your friends, teachers and/or contact me for details. We are currently scheduling for fall 2017 and spring 2018 season.

Summer is quickly approaching.

SWEET CORN, BUTTERBEANS, CROWDER PEAS: They have been planted. Pre-orders are being accepted at orders@oliverproduce.com.  Please include your name, product, quantity and best phone number to contact once we harvest. We call and schedule sweet corn because we pull that early the morning you plan to pickup.

STRAWBERRIES: This year has been a challenging year to say the least. I don’t believe the field is done yet, we just need some warmth and sunshine to finish ripening the next round of berries. I update the phone and facebook daily. We have greatly appreciated your patience, support and understanding as we deal with Mother Nature.

SAUSAGE: We have a running pre-order list for making. Rainy weather, and a certain poundage on the list, has us making sausage even in the summer months. So, don’t be afraid to pre-order anytime of year. We just made a batch a couple weeks ago.

SOLAR FARM: We are now offering field trip opportunities for school group, scouts, youth or any interested groups that are curious. Please share with your friends, teachers and/or contact me for details at news@oliverproduce.com and to reserve a calendar date.

Closed for ripening

We will close again today for ripening. Last weeks cool, cloudy days slowed down ripening. While I did see red in the field, I am confident better picking days are ahead.

Closed Mother’s Day

COOLER TEMPERATURES this past week make ripening slow – think how they store in your fridge.

Thankfully, we had berries for many Mother’s Day festivities, but the cloudy weather the last few days has left the field with berries not quite ripe for picking today so we have decided to close the field and encourage everyone to spend time with their families.

I will post hours for later this week. With sun and warmer temperatures, it won’t be long before the field will be full again. Always check before coming: here, our website or call 757-255-4563.

It is a YOU PICK only year. Please bring exact change or check. $9 4 quart busket or $8 each if you transfer pickings to your own container.
We appreciate your patience and support.

Closing today at noon

When I asked you to pick it out before rains, you have done a great job! Closing the field noon today for the sun to ripen for Saturday.

THIS IS THE FIRST WEEK, so berries will be plentiful in coming days and weeks as we get into the season and warmth. 

SATURDAY: If you drive more than 20 minutes, don’t this weekend. I would give the field the first of the week or check back for next weekend. Saturday is always a busy day and with rain Friday, I am anticipating some but not a ton ready for picking so we are declaring it: LOCALS PICK SATURDAY.
