Raspberry farm’s first year opening a store on site - with homemade goods from the farm
RIVERTON, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) -
The raspberry farm in Riverton is at the end of the road for raspberry picking, but it’s not too late to enjoy the delicious raspberries in a different form. You can still shop at SonHarvest Seasons for their homemade raspberry jams, jellies, and syrups for the first year at their newly opened giftshop. Owner Kim Peil hopes to put her extra pumpkins to good use, by whipping up some homemade pumpkin puree to sell.
The goods are currently for sale at the pumpkin patch, and on November 1st the items will be moved to the gift shop next to the raspberry patch. The addresss of the farm is 21 2 Valley Rd just outside of Riverton.
“We started with just one acre of raspberries and initially we wanted to make sure that raspberries would grow in Riverton, Wyoming. We really didn’t know, so we started small and we grew as we found varieties that worked well, we expanded our farm,” noted Kim.
Most recently, Kim has repurposed the dried gourds from the pumpkin patch into painted birdhouses, garland, fall decor, Christmas ornaments, and even a gourd water canteen. They are also available for purchase at the pumpkin patch and the store.
The store will be open through Christmas with all the raspberry goods for Christmas shopping, as well as, painted gourd decorations and ornaments for the tree.
