Big Branch Apiary will finally open for picking this Saturday, June 4th, 2022.
Today we picked blueberries in real quantities. It took three of us an hour to pick two gallons.
Advertised hours have changed: we’ll open 7:00 AM – 4:00 PM Saturdays & Tuesdays. It’s highly recommended you call or text us at 985-422-0880 before you drive up in case the berries are picked clean. Again, phone # is 985-422-0880.
Honey harvest is underway. We’ll have it for sale until it runs out. Fresh eggs are always available.
Berries are $5 for as many as you can get in a pint clamshell (which we supply), honey $8 a pint jar (w/honeycome $10 a pint), eggs $5 dz. For those interested in okra, it will be available in a few weeks. As payment, we accept PayPal, Venmo, credit cards, checks, the always-fashionable cash, and small children as long as they know how to run a tractor.
The blueberry bushes are young, ergo small, so harvesting two gallons means you will walk the entire field and see flames coming off your fitness tracker. We have buckets but you can bring your own if you want. If you come out we recommend long sleeves, a hat, water, mosquito spray, & for goodness’ sake, no sandals!
Hope to see you soon.
