 Red Haven Peaches
 are ready to be picked at Sauvie Island Farms. 

 The orchard will open on Thursday, August 11.  The crop is smaller this year, due to weather issues, so these won't last long.  We usually pick Red Havens for about 10 days, this year we are predicting 5 days or less.  The Red Havens are a favorite for freezing, canning and fresh eating.   Pick your own tree ripened peaches are just $1.50 per lb.  If you pick over 15 lbs the price drops to $1.25 per lb. and over 50 lbs the price is $1.00 per lb. 

Raspberries are still available on the farm. Our Tulameens are done for the season, but we still have some great Coho and Saanich raspberries.  The Blue Crop blueberries are plentiful, and so easy to pick.  It's difficult to find marions at this time, but you are welcome to hunt around for them.  And the Chester Blackberries are just getting started.  Pick your own berries are $1.75/lb.
Veggies for you to pick:  pickling cucumbers, green beans, pole beans, zucchini, summer squash, lettuce, cabbage, slicing cukes, lemon cucumbers, broccoli and a few peppers.

Flowers are blooming all over our u-cut flower garden! It's a great time to come out to Sauvie Island Farms. Hope to see you soon!!
