Rhubarb ready for picking

Our rhubarb is finally coming ready for picking. The cool weather we have had, slowed it down to a glacial pace…, however, it is finally shooting upward. We should have rhubarb from this Thursday, May 13 till the end of June. We love to eat it fresh and put some away for stewing and baking in the winter. It is especially good with the first strawberries, a celestial match if there ever was one!

 

We are open for u-pick and pre-picked by appointment. We also wholesale (orders of 10 lbs. or more). Our price is $3/lb. for u-pick, $4/lb. for pre-picked and $2-3 for wholesale (depending on size of order, pickup or delivery, etc.)
Please call ahead at (519) 665-7982
(landline so no texts please), or email devanpenney@gmail.com.
