2014 Muscadine Crop
Early in the spring iot appeared that there was going to be an abundant crop of muscadines. It appears that the spring rains interfeared with pollination therefore the crop is going to be on the light side. The cool, wet spring also has had an effect upon maturity of the berries and their development of sugars. The berries are still wonbderful for jam, jelly, juice, and fermented products. If any persons wish a large quantity of berries it would be wise to contact the Bluebird Hill Berry Farm and let them know your wishes.
2014 Muscadine Crop
The 2014 muscadine crop is progressing nicely. This unique fruit can be used for jam, jelly, juice, wine and many other items. The wet cool July may have slowed maturity but we are expecting a good crop. Color is beginning to show on some of the berries now so maybe it will not be to much longer.

Rivervalley Market Open
Just a reminder that the market is open for placing orders.
This first day of Autumn has begun as a marvelous day and hopefully it will end the same.
If you view the market you will realize that the Stutzman’s do not have any products listed as being available. They do not make the trip to Russellville each Friday any longer so it is not feasible to have their products available on the market. We will be working to come up with a solution to the logistics problem and maybe we can have their products available again soon.
