SPENCER FARM PRODUCE
seasonal timeframes for each are highlighted
2012 marked the first year of pick your own asparagus! You may cut your own, or purchase pre-cut/bundled asparagus at the gift shop/ market. The season starts late April or early May.
Our strawberries usually start to ripen the end of May. The season is approximately 3 weeks in duration. You may pick your own, or purchase strawberries already picked. Strawberry season appears to be on schedule right now to start the end of May or first part of June. Please check back for regular updates.
The black raspberry season usually begins in the middle of June, and ends the beginning of July. You may pick your own, or purchase black raspberries already picked. The demand for black raspberries is usually very high, so it is always best to call us before you come to the farm. We also offer frozen black raspberries in the market.
We planted our first blueberries in 2005. Each year our pick-your-own yields will increase. While waiting for our blueberry crops to mature we are supplementing our demand for blueberries with hand-picked blueberries from DeGrandchamp Blueberry Farm in South Haven, Michigan. This Farm is one of the premiere blueberry farms in the World! We ask that you sign up at our farm, or via the online order form (located via the link on the left-hand side of the website once we start accepting orders) to make sure you receive what you need. Blueberries will be available the middle to latter part of June through the end of July.
The table (edible) grape season usually begins the middle to end of August, and ends sometime in early September, or when all of the clusters have been picked. We have 4 varieties of grapes: Jupiter (a seedless black grape), Vanessa (a seedless red grape- only availabe pre-picked), Marquis (a seedless white grape), and Concord (a seeded black grape). You may pick your own, or purchase grapes already picked.
The red raspberry season usually begins the beginning of August, and ends sometime during October, depending on when the first freeze of the year occurs. You may pick your own, or purchase red raspberries already picked.
We offer fruits and vegtables from other growers in Indiana and surrounding states. Produce will be available all Summer and Fall long. From Apples to Zucchini, we can't do each crop justice if we try to raise everything. However, we have excellent relationships with other growers and know where to obtain the best local produce.
FIELD GROWN CHRYSANTHEMUMS
Beautiful field grown mums that you can dig yourself or purchase already dug. Mums are available the middle of September through October.
PUMPKINS, GOURDS, ETC.
The autumn pumpkin harvest season runs the entire month of October. We offer hayrides to the pumpkin patch on weekends. We also offer school field trips during the week. You will find everything you need from corn stalks & straw bales to freshly made carmel apples.
