The pleasure of herbs is unmistakable. If you use them you know their value...if you are new to herbs you are in for a treat. Look for the D.I.Y. Herb garden the next time you visit Outback Farm for your blueberries, you may find the herbs as irresistible as I do.

Yes, the road is still washed out for those of you used to getting here via 438 Rd. off Hwy.20. Continue to use the detour 437 Rd. off Hwy 20 to 470 Rd. then east or True Rd. (435 Rd.) north to 470 Rd. then east to farm. They say it's going to be fixed soon!!!


July 26, 2015
It is pretty toasty temps out in the blueberry fields these days. Weather took its toll on the crop this year and seemed to cut the season a little short. Now is the time plants set their fruit for next years crop so we arelooking forward to that, its all good.
