Thank you to all of you who joined us here on the farm last Sunday. We are hoping for a few bright sunny days along with a bit of rain and some warmer temperatures to help ripen a few more berries for you to pick.
We will be open again on Saturday 6/18 beginning at 10 am. until noon. The long range forecast promises us a nice day. We shall see. If you have questions about how this all works please read the rest of this post.
Please read carefully.
We will be open for u-pick blueberries on Saturday 6-18-22 from 10am to noon. A nod toward social distancing. When you are out in the patch remember to keep your distance from other pickers. The farmer in charge of sales will not be wearing a mask but is old enough to have been vaccinated and boosted months ago. If you have a cough and fever stay home.
The way it works: We try to balance the ripe berries (so there are enough for everyone who shows up), the weather (not raining or excessively hot and humid) with the opportunity to come to the farm and pick. This is not a perfect system. But the forecast for Saturday 6-18-22 from 10am to noon is looking good. The supply of ripe berries may be limited, it will not be the day to pick quarts and quarts easily to fill the freezer.
We have containers. We sell by the pint and quart (not weight). After more than a decade and in recognition of our ever increasing costs we are raising prices. You pick and then pay the farmer $5.00 a pint and $10.00 a quart. The containers are full when the berries are level with the top of the container. Overfilled containers cost more. Really – no pyramids.
Things to keep in mind. No toilets (so plan ahead). Bring a water bottle picking can be thirsty work. We don’t take credit cards (or any other form of electronic payment). Cash or a check payable to Blueberry Gardens will do the trick. No smoking anywhere on the farm. Leave your pets at home. Yes children are welcome. Most parking is directly off the driveway on the grass.
If you have any questions that were not covered above just hit the CONTACT tab and send us an email. The farmer in charge of sales does not own a smart phone. So I won’t be checking email once I’m outside sitting under the canopy. So don’t expect a response between 10am and noon on Saturday.
