Here's wishing all Mom's a lovely Mother's Day from Outback Farm. Perfect weather, perfect sunshine and a perfect asparagus bouquet.
April 23, 2018
Go ahead, try eating seasonal....it's time to gobble up all the asparagus you can handle, YUM!
So tasty and good for you too. An excellent source of vitamin B6, calcium, magnesium and zinc.
April 3, 2018
Ahhh, we progress through the seasons. Huge strides forward in pruning, almost time to look at the asparagus closely. Decisions and plans for the upcoming season to be made, that's farm-life.
did well, was delicious, not sure we need that much though
this particular photo will be put to new use this year
I almost don't remember this far back
they look so small at this stage
February 3, 2018
Pruning time and yes, it is still cold out there any way you look at it...just ask the pruners. Pruning, one of those must do's we will be thankful for come spring. And let's see what we can do with the pruning's, any ideas?

First signs of winter bring a breath of snow, something we have not seen for awhile here at Outback Farm. Chill hours for the blueberries are good, temperatures in the teens for humans, not so much. (double click photo to enlarge)
December 2, 2017
Hmmmmm, the calendar says December, the colors say fall. But the temperature gauge says 70 degrees and the sunshine is bright. Am I confused? Oh, that's right, we are in Oklahoma, say no more.
October 23, 2017
Okay, so it looks like fall is ready to take hold. There are signs of the blueberry leaves starting to change color. We will be able to complete all the daily farm tasks in a cooler climate, hooray.

OMG! We are into our 5th week of the blueberry season and still going strong. This is absolutely the most fruitful crop we have had since our first in 2010.
We have tried to keep it simple so you can remember when we are open, EVERYDAY! The gates are open seven days a week from 6am (been real popular) to 6pm. As the summer heat gets stronger you might want to head out to the blueberry patch as soon as you can, it is so nice early in the morning.
It's official - Blueberry Season Opening on Saturday May 30th, 2015
Rain or shine the gates will open! Blueberries are plump and ready for picking. Rain has left fields wet so you might want to bring your rubber boots. Cole Strang Rd. (438) has washed out so detour to 470 from True Rd. (435).
May 8, 2015 -
Looking for blueberries to be ready to start picking around June 1st, hooray!!!
April 26, 2015 This is our first year for harvesting from the first planting we did. We were so pleased with our results that we did a second planting that will be ready next year at this time for harvest
Delicious, nutritious and ready for your table.
the asparagus grows remarkably fast
nourishing next seasons harvest
February 21, 2015 well these pictures certainly have the look and feel of winter to me. Mother nature is kicked back at the moment while we anticipate warmer temperatures and sunshine for the coming season.
July 22, 2014
The 2014 blueberry season is behind us. That being said, even though there are no more fresh blueberries for picking we do have fresh frozen available for anyone who is interested. FYI-we have fresh pre-picked blackberries available too. The produce (tomatoes, cucumbers and peppers) are coming on nicely as well so you can add those to your shopping list. Our other products like honey, jams, syrup, BBQ sauce and soap will be available year round. If you are making a trip to the farm that is a distance it is ALWAYS A GOOD IDEA TO CALL FIRST to be sure we can accommodate your request.
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 28, 2014 - the weather has actually offered up some really nice picking days lately and lots of folks have taken advantage of it. The overcast days made for less intense heat and the wind made being outside feel better than it would without it. Now the rain, not so much...
at least for the pickers but it did cool things down and give the plants a drink. And for your viewing pleasure wildflowers are popping up everywhere
June 19, 2014 - We've been picking Dukes for two weeks now and they are still going strong. Some of the other varieties are ripening up too so there is a nice selection of blueberries available. Come on out, they are just waiting for you. Limited amounts of produce are also becoming available, its a surprise each day. We are thrilled to have some of our customers back for the third year in a row. Thanks folks, you're the best. 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 -
believing is seeing right, so here is a current photo of the blueberries to come. Just a tad longer and these will be beautiful BLUEberries. Stay in touch, will post when the gates are open for u-pick.
May 6, 2014- hey there, it's just around the corner....blueberry pickin' season that is. We are getting geared up for a great season and hope each and every one of you will have the opportunity to come out and visit us. Stay tuned for updates...my goal this year is to do a weekly update, remember, it's my goal so we'll see how that goes. You can also keep an eye out for our signs...when they are up, we are ready.
August 10, 2013- well, okay then...there you have it, yet another wonderful blueberry season at Outback Farm has come and gone. We want all of our old and new friends to understand how much we appreciate your support and spreading the word about our blueberry farm. Every season we learn something new and try to make at least one improvement that will lend itself to a wonderful "blueberry experience" for you and your family. Got so darn busy during the picking season with those 7am 7pm 7days a week hours my intended website updates went by the wayside...I'll get better at this with time.
FYI-Frozen blueberries are available until our supply is exhausted. Call when you want to come get yours.
July 2013 - We are open 7 days a week from 7am to 7pm unless you have made previous arrangements to pick at another time.
Directions to the farm:
from Pryor go east on Hwy. 20; make left (north) turn at 438 Rd. (across from gas station and race track); stay right, go straight at stop sign; stay on main roadways (couple curves to road) until you come to intersection of 439 and 470 roads; go right or east at 470 Rd.; you are there. Look for signs posted along the way.
from Pryor go north on Hwy. 69 until you come to 470 Rd.; make right turn (east); go straight on 470 Rd. for 7 miles...you've arrived at gate. Look for signs posted along the way.
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 diehards that cannot wait til the weekend come ahead. Gate opens at 7AM unless you've made previous arrangements.
May 30,2013 - They (the blueberries) are not ripe yet. Can you believe it? It's going to be June before we will be picking blueberries. But that's OK, they will be worth the wait. Phones have started ringing, emails and texts have been coming in, everyone is anxious to begin the season. Let's be patient just a little longer, pray for warm sunshine and then we can dive into the wonderful world of blueberries for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Stay tuned for updates.
May 5, 2013 - Whoa! Trust me, we will not be picking blueberries by May 15 this year! Looks like Mother Nature has taken us back to the "norm" for blueberry season which puts picking time starting around the last week of May. With the weather flipping back and forth between warm and cool temperatures no time line is guaranteed. Be sure to check in as we will start with regular updates now that the season approaches. You can also email us to put yourself on our email notice list. The Dukes will be the first berry to ripen so as soon as we see signs of them blueing we will put the word out. Always call before you visit the farm to check the current blueberry availability.
May 15, 2012
- It's official, we are picking blueberries. The warm weather brought the blueberries about two weeks earlier this year. Nice, we have already enjoyed them and encourage you to come out to the farm to pick your blueberries too. We will be open seven days a week from 7:00am to 5:00pm or by appointment. We provide pails for picking and bags to take your blueberries home. Our payment method is cash. Visit us at the farm: 4163 E. 470 Rd., Pryor, OK
2012 SPRING UPDATE
As we approach the blueberry "U-PICK" season we wanted to let our friends and neighbors know we do not plan on attending the local and surrounding area Farmers Markets this year. We offer kudos to everyone who has worked so hard on all of these venues, your efforts have not gone unnoticed or unappreciated by the community and farmers alike. We have decided to focus on the farm so we can provide each and every visitor an experience worth telling their friends and families about. We encourage you to join us in the "U-PICK" mode or visit the farm for pre-picked blueberries when available.
2011 SPRING UPDATE
Well, we went ahead and planted a few more blueberries, what's a little more work at this point. Okay, that makes two and a half acres of blueberries up and coming. Can't wait to open the "U-PICK" gates and for those of you who just want blueberries without the picking we'll do our best to have a supply on hand for you. Check back often to see when we will officially open. Be sure to contact us before you make a trip to the farm to be sure we have plenty of ripe berries for you to pick and take home.
2010 SPRING UPDATE
Oh my gosh! We are seeing blueberries.....and they are gorgeous......who would have thought we could be so excited about a blueberry plant, but let me tell you, we are! We have planted several varieties and each one will ripen at different times over the growing season. This season will give us the opportunity to learn about the varieties for future plantings. Which one seems the heartiest, which one tastes best, which one is biggest? Everyone will have a favorite and we invite you to choose your favorite blueberry variety too. Some of the plants have abundant blueberries and some have sparse berries. We actually did not anticipate a crop of much substance this year. We are thinking there are definitely more blueberries than we can eat but not really enough to open the "U-PICK"
gates. We'll see, stay tuned and we'll keep you posted on what Mother Nature has actually sent us this year.
2009 THE SAGA BEGINS
Blueberries are what we have in mind right now. Peruse through our website, it's relatively small at this time and it won't take you long at all. We are at the beginning of a great adventure. We hope you'll come visit us when our blueberries are ready for picking. You will be able to enjoy "from the bush to the table" locally grown fruit. Please feel free to contact us via the email listed below. Thanks!
