SUMMER 2020 UPDATE:
Fenton's Berry Farm is the area's premier producer of locally grown strawberries, blueberries, and blackberries, as well as tomatoes and other vegetables in season. Our strawberry season runs from about mid-April to mid-late May. Blueberries and blackberries are available for u-pick in season, mid-June to mid-late July. All berries are also available picked to order (see below), and both berries and vegetables are also available in season at Fenton's Farm Market. (Season dates vary year to year due to weather factors.)
June 20, 2020
While everything remains in a bit of upheaval in the world right now, we continue to move forward with our harvests, barring forces beyond our control. Here's the current plan, subject to change without notice!
The strawberry season is winding down, although there are still a few coming in the high tunnel. We are allowing u-pick in the tunnel when we are open for blueberries, first come first served. Just ask when you arrive at the berry booth on the farm.
We have been picking blueberries since June 6 this season. We are open for u-pick Monday thru Saturday, 8 a.m. to noon, weather permitting and barring the need to close for ripening. (Call or check Facebook daily!) This may be a shortened season due to the cold spring and a lighter crop, so we recommend you come for blueberries ASAP! U-pick blueberries are $3 a pound, with 5 1/2 - 6 pounds to the gallon.
We do continue to take orders for picked blueberries. To order, you may call (870) 741-6871 and leave a message, or private message us through either of our Facebook business pages for Fenton's Berry Farm here or Fenton's Farm Market here. Picked blueberries are $25 a gallon, or $7 a quart.
Due to the freezing overnight temperatures while the blackberries were in bloom, we have lost a LOT of our blackberry crop for this year. We are not taking orders for blackberries at this time, nor are we likely to open for u-pick blackberries.
We have begun to harvest some of our own farm-raised vegetables this summer, including okra, squash, cucumbers. We will have our almost-world-famous ;) tomatoes beginning around the first of July. All of our produce is available at FENTON'S FARM MARKET. The Market's hours are currently Mon/Wed/Fri 10 - 6, and Sat 9 - 1. See the Market's page for more info!
FINALLY: We want to thank each and every one of you for your loyalty and friendship. We SO appreciate the relationships we have grown with our customers over the past 5 years at the Market, and the past 18 years at the Farm! We hope to continue those relationships well into the future! We hope you'll bear with us in this crazy time in which we find ourselves, and keep us foremost in mind as your provider of the BEST fresh produce available in the area. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!
