Greetings from Jossy Farms!
Peach season has begun! We are now picking Red Haven, Flaming Fury peaches and Ubileen pears. The Ubileen pear is a large, juicy and nice flavored pear that comes from Yugoslavia. The price for U-pick is $1.50 per pound for 50 lbs.or less and $1.25 per pound for 51 or more lbs. We had a frost this spring and will only be open when we have ripe fruit. Check the recording before coming to the farm. We have a good crop of veteran peaches, apples and pears this year.
The Vivid and Star Fire peach will be ripe in approximately 7 days. Following that will be the Gravenstein apples, about 10 days from now. We anticipate that we will start picking the Veteran peach around the end of July and the Bartlett pears should be ready about the 8th of Aug. We should have Peaches, Apples and Pears at least until the middle of August this year.
As always, these dates are estimates. Please check the recorded message at 503-647-5234 the evening before or the morning of the day you plan on coming to the farm to check fruit availability and open hours. We are located 1/8 mile south of the Sunset highway and ¼ mile west on Beach Rd. Our address is 31965 NW Beach Rd. Hillsboro, 97124
We look forward to seeing you soon!
