Picking Raspberries, Currants, and Gooseberries at My Farm

It's berry-picking time here at my Bedford, New York farm and I have an abundance of these small summer fruits just waiting to be harvested.

I grow many berries - I love sharing them with family and friends, and freezing them for use all year long. Behind my main greenhouse are bushes of raspberries, blackberries, gooseberries, and currants. All of them are delicious eaten raw at the peak of ripeness, but can also be used for making jams, jellies, and other desserts. Yesterday, I along with my housekeepers, picked several trays and boxes of wonderful raspberries, blackberries, gooseberries, and pink champagne colored currants.
