So I’ve known about all these social media thingamabobs for a while, but I figured it was time to get Huldy’s Farm into the 21st century. I swear it sounds like I planned it like this, but I really didn’t! Honest! Here’s how it went down.

It’s Monday. The start of the work week and a good day to get all signed up across the internet. So that’s what I did. I started with Twitter, and after I signed up, it showed me trending hashtags. The first one was #PiDay. I’m nerdy, so I like things like Pi Day. But it didn’t occur to me until then that it was March 14. Pi Day.


I prefer Pie Day.

Let’s just say I’m not very good with dates. I remember once being in downtown Tulsa and seeing some booths being set up for some sort of festival, and my first knee-jerk reaction was: yay, it must be time for Mayfest! It was an unseasonably warm day in January. But January, nonetheless. There is no Januaryfest.

Anywho, considering my clumsiness with calendars, I thought it was quite appropriate that our social media presence (past Facebook) was established on Pi Day, unplanned.

The only bad thing about Pi Day: it’s not during berry season! Do you still have frozen strawberries and blackberries from last year? I don’t – but the season is starting soon! Maybe one last clamshell of grocery store strawberries, just to tide me over. Bleh.



A Soggy Ending for Strawberries and the Beginnings of Blackberries

What a wonderful start to the 2015 season…and what a crazy end. What was supposed to be 4-5 weeks of strawberry pickin’ has now ended due to the insane amounts of rain we’ve been getting lately. I’m not sure what Mother Nature has in mind this year – she’s already taken the blueberries before they could even grow, and now we only get 9 strawberry days.

Fear not, berry eaters, for the blackberries are on their way!


3 of 42 rows of blackberries

We’ll keep you posted here and on Facebook when the blackberries start ripening, most likely in the first couple weeks of June. Last year they lasted until the first part of August, so hopefully all this rain will slow down.

If not, we’re building an ark and gathering people and animals. Except snakes.


Our First Strawberry Season is Here!

Huldy’s Farm is proud to announce our very first crop of strawberries, now ready to pick, starting tomorrow, May 2, 2015! These strawberries grow to the size of an egg, and the taste can’t be beat. You won’t find a strawberry that’s red all the way through in the grocery store – and you won’t find white cores in our ripe strawberries! Sweet, juicy, big ol’ strawberries will be available here for the next 4-5 weeks.


Our very first strawberries!

On second thought, and upon fond memory recollection, these are not actually the first strawberries to grow on the land at Huldy’s Farm. Wild strawberries grew outside near a corner of the farmhouse, and I remember gathering them into a basket with Mamaw Johnson, and she’d turn them into something special – chopped and mounded over a slice of angel food cake, or sprinkled over some leftover snow ice cream from the previous winter.


A beautiful basket of berries

I’ve made a few jars of jam – certainly Mamaw would approve – but instead of adding a bunch of sugar, I stuck to the basics and left it at fruit, juice, and no-sugar-needed pectin. It’s perfect on a bagel or toast, or my preferred delivery method: with a spoon. In an effort to not keep these sweet strawberries under lidded jar, I managed to give away all but one small jar.


I’m putting this in the back of the pantry for safe keeping.

Our First Farmers’ Market!

Today, we took 42 pints of blueberries from Patch 1 to the Cherry Street Farmers’ Market at 15th and Peoria in Tulsa.


Yes, I know that’s only 12 pints in the picture.

We picked them all last night, directly into the clamshell containers, and loaded ’em up.


It says, “We tickle ’em so they’re sweet for you!”

Then, this morning, we arrived before the sun, and got setup and ready to sell. Here’s a pic of Mom and Gerald, right before the opening of the market at 6:52am:


It was too early for me to remember taking this picture.

We ended up selling out within – well, it’s under dispute – Mom says we sold out in two hours, I say we sold out in one hour. Either way, it was a smashing success, even though we were selling only 42 pints of blueberries, compared to everyone else’s silos of produce. We felt a little small today, but we know there’s more to come!

Oh and BTW – come visit us at the farm to pick some blueberries! U-Pick is $21 for a full, level, one-gallon bucket. We-Pick is $36 for a full, level, one-gallon bucket.

See you soon!


Blueberries! Come N’ Get ‘Em!

Look at these beauties from Patch 1!


They’re so good!

Next Saturday, May 26, 2012, we will be at the Cherry Street Farmers’ Market at 15th and Peoria, selling $6 pints of blueberries. Or, come see us and pick your own! There’s only one patch, so they won’t last long.

Happy blueberries!
