    Comments from a visitor on July 26, 2009: "I have to say that this blackberry crop is the most amazing I've ever seen. Thornless bushes w/ berries the size of jawbreakers! They're awesome this year. My wife and I went on a Saturday and there were only 3 or 4 others there picking. We had over 14 pounds in 25 minutes. It was so fun I took my children back a few days later and we got another 8 pounds. This is going to become a regular stop for us in mid-July each year. Staff was friendly; store was clean; bathrooms accessible and clean."
