Sakuma Bros. Farms has decided to close the Sakuma Market Stand and the U-pick farm during the 2016 season. We have decided to focus on our core business of providing the best berries to our partners, and through them, to our customers.
This was a very difficult decision for us. We know that many people enjoy the market stand and we enjoy meeting with customers and the community. We hope to bring it back in the near future. Thank you for your suppport.
