Even though "picking" has come to a halt, Outback Farm continues to make available other products. We are harvesting delicious tomatoes right now and anticipating a nice crop of melons, watermelon and cantaloupe. They were awesome last year and we expect the same this year.

Weird?

July 22, 2014 -
If you come to the farm and the gate is 'closed' please call one of the numbers posted and we will do our utmost to be of service to you. If the gate is 'open' please proceed but remember to give us a few minutes to come up from wherever we are working so we can assist you. All of our products remain available to you and remember, we've added more.........
- July 12, 2014 - NEW HOURS NOTICE -
Outback Farm will be closing at 5:00pm for the duration of the picking season. However, please remember that you can always call to make whatever arrangements are convenient for you regarding picking times. The gates will continue to open at 7:00am (unless prior earlier arrangements have been made). We are happy to try to accommodate our customers at every opportunity if at all possible. You can also call us whenever you see the gate closed to arrange to pick up products or produce throughout the summer.
June 29, 2014 - Blueberries are abundant and for the CHANDLER fans we've started picking those too. Just about every variety we have is available now. People are liking the idea of being able to take home some ripe and just off the vine tomatoes and cucumbers. I hear the fresh cut herbs are going into pestos and pickles, yum! Come and check things out, each day offers something a little different. We never know what the herb garden and high tunnel are going to have ready for us til we go and get it. June 22, 2014
We are open from 7am to 7pm 7days. Nice job on the photo Greg, thanks.
WE ARE OPEN for the 2014 season..........
June 5, 2014 - I tasted my first fresh off the bush blueberry this morning from our 2014 crop. Friends, they are ready, it's blueberry pickin' time! We will be open tomorrow, Friday, June 6th at 7am and we will call it a day at 7pm. Outback Farm will be open seven (7) days a week during the blueberry season. Come on out.
May 29, 2014 - Yup, we've been busy... adding other produce you may be interested in when the time is appropriate. These will not be u-pick produce but we plan to have some tomatoes, peppers, melons and herbs this season for you to enjoy along with your blueberries. Later in the season pumpkins and in the fall don't forget about pecans.
MAY 2014- some of you may have noticed our high tunnel last season. We've planted tomatoes (several varieties) and peppers (both sweet and spicey) and will have some for you to take home from the farm and directly to your table. Not going to be the volume of the blueberries but our veggies will be fresh and local. We'll let you know when and what is available or you can just come ahead and be surprised when you get here.
- if you failed to stock up with as many blueberries as this satisfied customer, breath easy. We have FROZEN BLUEBERRIES that will be available as long as our supply lasts. So when the fresh blueberries are gone and the blueberry bug bites you just give us a call and we will set aside what you need for you to come and pick up. Oh yeah, don't forget the blueberry products we have available too:
handcrafted blueberry soap
blueberry maple syrup
blueberry balsamic vinegar
blueberry BBQ sauce
blueberry chipolte BBQ sauce
jams (blueberry, blackberry, strawberry and elderberry)
and last but not least farm eggs
These products are available to you year round. Call us with your "wish list" and we'll get it ready for you. If you are in the neighborhood and just want to stop by you can do that too. If the gate is closed you will have to give us a call so we know you are ready to shop. Thanks folks!
June 23, 2013-During blueberry season we are open 7 days a week from 7am to 7pm or by appointment. We try to be flexible so you can enjoy picking blueberries at a time that works best for you. FYI -Mapquest works well if you are trying to locate Outback Farm and you can always call for directions.
June 9,2013 - QUICK UPDATE....IT'S TIME - blueberry picking season arrived overnight, yup, they are ready and waiting for you. June 15, will be our official first weekend open for this years picking season but for any of you die hards that cannot wait til the weekend come ahead. Gateopens at 7AM unless you've made previousarrangements.
So last season in addition to blueberries we had available local raw honey, farm fresh eggs, hand crafted blueberry soap, pecans and fresh picked basil. Gee, those products were so popular we are going to do our best to make them available for the 2013 season as well and we may even add a few other surprises. Be sure to pay us a visit to see what's going on. See ya at the farm! BUY FRESH, BUY LOCAL, EAT REAL FOOD.
