Dewberries are Ready for Picking

I had the best holdiay weekend! My husband and I found some dewberries along the roadside off the main highway in a rural area, stopped and picked them and later made a mouth watering dewberry cobbler. The experience I just described was one people will pay money to have; it's a great idea to add to your agritourism venture portfolio.

That same weekend we picked mayhaws from one of our four small trees; only one will bear this year, but next year, we will have plenty of mayhaws to make our own jelly; yet another great agritourism experience.

Berry picking time is a perfect time to invite guests to your farm to experience the joy of taking food from the farm to the table.
