2019 – Open Times for the Week of June 10th 2019 to June16th 2019

First a thank you to all of those who turned out for our opening day of picking on Saturday. Lots and lots of beautiful berries left the farm with happy pickers. For those who missed the chance or those who are ready for more here are the days and times for the week ahead.

We will be open Tuesday 6/11 in the afternoon from 2pm to 6pm.

Open again on Friday 6/14 midday 10am to 1pm.

and on Sunday 6/16 from 1pm to 4pm.

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.

We have containers. We sell by the pint and quart (not weight). The prices are the same as last year and for the many years before that. You pick and then pay the farmer $4.00 a pint and $8.00 a quart. The containers are full when the berries are level with the top of the container. Overfilled containers cost more.

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. 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.

Counting Down To Blueberries – 2019

The 2019 season seems to be fast approaching. The weather has been very favorable to our early season blueberry bushes and they are covered with flowers and we are starting to see the fruit develop from behind the flowers. Ever grateful for the work of all the pollinators. When the fruit is ready for you to visit the farm and fill our pint and quart containers we will announce it here as well as send an email out to those who are on our list.

Each flower has the potential to be a blueberry. These little berries should be big and dark blue by early June.

To join the list just click on the contact button and fill out the form. We will be open when the berries, the weather and our schedules are in alignment.

Looking forward to a bountiful harvest.

One More Time This Season

We still have blueberries in the back field. Come join us from 8am to noon on Saturday 7/21. The weather prediction is for cool, cloudy and the rain holding off until the afternoon just might be perfect for picking a quart or two.

As stated in our previous posts. The mid-season varieties in the back field have ripe berries. More than we expected. As a result we will be open this Saturday 7/21 from 8am to noon to share them with anyone willing to deal with the thistle, other weeds and the challenge of picking in our barely maintained back acres. Please leave the small children at home as this is really not an experience they will enjoy. Come early to be the heat.

We have containers but you are welcome to bring your own. We sell by the pint and quart (not weight). The prices are the same as last year and for the many years before that. You pick and then pay the farmer $4.00 a pint and $8.00 a quart. The containers are full when the berries are level with the top of the container. Overfilled containers cost more.

Things to keep in mind. No toilets (so plan ahead). Some people find sunscreen stress reducing. Bring a water bottle, picking can be thirsty work. We don’t take credit cards. Cash or a check payable to Blueberry Gardens will do the trick. No smoking anywhere on the farm.

Thank You

Our early season berries have come and gone. Thank you to those of you who helped with the harvest. If you’ve signed up for the weekly veggie news you will continue to get notices about what we have available. At the moment we have lots of wonderful tomatoes and the summer squash has been just great. June was a great month for the bees and we now have honey available. Sign up for the weekly email by following the link on the page that the Veggie tab leads to. Once again thank you to all of you. As Robert likes to say “it is a pleasure growing for you”.

Where Have All The Berries Gone?

The birds have picked them one by one. Reminds me of an old song.

If you are reading this before heading out to the farm for our already announced hours on 7/4 please be prepared for disappointment. Having just walked the patch it is clear that we have far fewer berries than we expected just a couple of days ago. This happens at some point every year. The birds maybe celebrating but the farmers are disappointed. So if you are reading this our advice is to find another way to pass a few early morning hours on 7/4.

Everyone Asks

When will you be open again? Our early season berries are just about done. Being outside in the heat and humidity is brutal. But we have a plan. No camp carpool on the 4th so we can be open for u-pick early in the day before the temperature works up into the 90s.

OPEN 7/4 FROM 8AM TO 11AM

Come by and pick a few berries to take along to that picnic later in the day or to munch on while you enjoy the fireworks. All the usual information in the next paragraph. Remember come out early and beat the heat. Wednesday 7/4 from 8am to 11am.

We have containers but you are welcome to bring your own. We sell by the pint and quart (not weight). The prices are the same as last year and for the many years before that.
