The Berry Farm Never Sleeps!
Once harvest is complete, work begins on next year’s crop immediately.
The first step of renovation involves the berries being chopped down to approximately two to three inches above the ground.
Aeration is the process of breaking up the soil 12-18 inches deep so air, water, and nutrients can get in more easily.
The next step is rototilling the rows back to approximately 12-18 inches in width, cutting the plants back, and throwing soil on top of the rows. This stimulates new root formation, providing for healthier, stronger plants the following year.
Field cultivation, hoeing, and irrigation are constant throughout the summer and fall. Keeping our plants healthy and weed free is our main objective until winter.
