Asparagus is here!
Seems like we waited forever for the asparagus to come up this year. Guess that was a lesson in how important the conditions can be for growing. After our super cold winter the asparagus needed time for the soil to warm up and the sunshine to arrive. Think we are good to go now! We are cutting daily. Asparagus is typically ready after 10:00AM each morning. Recommend you ALWAYS call before you drive out to farm to be sure we have what you want. The asparagus goes fast. Don't put it off until tomorrow, come and get some now. It will be gone again before we know it.

It's b-r-r-r-r outside!
This is beyond brrrr! Historic and record breaking temperatures. No worries on chill hours this season. This is usually the time of year we do some pruning, which does not include me, the guys have it under control. I get outside now and again to pick up the forever clippings and that is so much easier than trying to decide which cane to cut and how much to take. I appreciate the skill it takes to do the job right. Did you realize that pruning is really quite an art? Done properly it nourishes your plants but done improperly it can set them back a spell. Our plants have been in the ground ten years now and we have some pretty healthy canes as the plant core and then each year the new growth adds to the berry set. An amazing process as all growth is.
In 2021 we will have our wood slabs available for you. We started this project last year but is does take time for the wood to dry so you are happy with the end product. Funny, but it seems like everywhere I look these days I see ideas for woodworking. The obvious is shelving or table tops, but gee, there are so many clever things you can create. We invite you to have a look at the different sizes and wood species we have for you to choose from so you can make your creative ideas a reality. I am partial to the live edge look but you can do just about anything you want and if you need ideas, there is the internet. When you come out for your fantabulous blueberries, whether you pick yourself or get the pre-picked, allow yourself some time to check out the wood stacks.
We look forward to seeing you when blueberry season roles around if not before. You know, maybe you need a jar of honey or want a bottle of blueberry wine, it's all good
And don't forget, the asparagus will be here first, right around April (???).
colorful & splashy
If we cannot make 2021 perfect let's at least make it colorful and splashy...that sounds fun.

Since that first plant went into the ground in November 2010 it has been an uphill ride ever since. For that we thank you.
From wanting to do something with the land to developing a respectable little blueberry farm, who knew. Then of course, we've added a few things over time like the ever popular asparagus which usually starts producing around March-April, just before the blueberries.
We will take responsibility for contributing to the creation of what we refer to most affectionately as "our blueberry snobs." These are focused individuals who know exactly what they like and that would be a particular variety of blueberry. It can be any variety, after all, everyone's favorite is different. But it is interesting how it can be the large plump Chandler for one person, the abundant Duke for another, or the juicy Legacy for yet another. Hey, that's life in blueberry land.
Another thing about life in blueberry land are the opportunities that just seem to pop up, growing things, making things, developing things. I tell you it is endless, so pay attention to see what crops up (pun intended) in the tomorrow. We can't wait for new developments and hope you are you as excited as we are.
Our family looks forward to serving your family for many more years to come with the finest blueberries we can muster. That is of course with the aid of Mother Nature who has been kind to us. We look forward to re-kindling our friendship with each and every one of you each and every blueberry season.

Surely you have heard that saying, “variety is the spice of life” but did you know variety is also the spice of blueberries?
Really, just ask any blueberry connoisseur…. you will hear all the reasons why one person likes the big Chandlers, the sweet Dukes or the plump Legacy. And, each of them are correct because it is all about choice.
That said, it is fine to have a favorite but do not be afraid to venture out a little and try some of the other varieties. You may be surprised with what they have to offer.
Here is a glance at the blueberry array you will find at Outback Farm: Duke, Bluegold, Bluecrop, Bluejay, Legacy, Rebel, Toro, Chandler, Elliot, Ruebel, Vernon, Titan and last but not least, Pink Lemonade, really. Check out the "Did you Know?" page to get a little information about each of the blueberry varieties we grow.
So when the blueberry picking season rolls around annually, typically mid May through mid July, take the opportunity to introduce yourself to the delightful collection we have been watering, pruning, mulching, weeding and nurturing for you. We do not think you will be disappointed.
We have also added a F.A.Q. page for your convenience. See if you can get your question answered there and if not just contact us whatever way works best for you. And, if you cannot bear the thought of waiting for the fresh blueberry season to roll around, FYI, we just about always have frozen blueberries for you. Give us a call.
