2016 Berry Season Information
The 2016 berry season was heavily influenced by unseasonably hot weather in April and May, as a result this years berry season did not last as long as previous years.
Our 2016 Strawberry season started in mid May and extended until the end of June. Strawberries this year were much softer than prior years due to the alternating rain and heat weather patterns through those months.
The late season Strawberry harvest started at the end of July and continued until August. Late season berries were firm and the plants yielded an abundant crop.
The 2016 Raspberry season was very short and was limited to the month of June. The extreme heat during the last few weeks of May and first week of June left the crops very soft and the majority of these berries were processed in our production plant.
Blueberry crops were also effected by the 2016 summer weather patterns. Combinations of heat and rain limited the growing season for blueberries and all varieties of blueberries were ready for harvest within the same three week span. The result of the abundant crops were; a large blueberry presence in the market but only for a limited time and not as long as previous years.
Our 2016 Blackberry harvest was early however due to the thick nature of the plants the berries were not negatively effected by the weather.
