How to Dress

Early morning is the best time to pick blackberries. It is also the best time to encounter hungry mosquitos. Even though our berries are thornless and thorns are not an issue, long sleeve shirts offer protection from these pesky insects. A can of repellant would also be helpful.

Though we constantly treat for fire ants, scientist have not developed anything that prevents them from crossing the barb wire fences around our farm and joining in the berry picking. Closed-toe shoes are recommended along with a shot of repellant on the shoes and ankles. Please don't bring yourself or children with flip flops or sandals.

As for snakes, our blackberries are very erect and are not "bushy". The row middles are kept well manicured and mowed closely.
