To those of you who visited the farm this past week and who have ben enjoying the berries that you picked a heart felt Thank You. We will be open again on Wednesday 6/14 from 9:30 to noon and again on Saturday 6/17 from 9 am to noon. Read the rest of this post for further information.
Please read carefully.
We will be open for u-pick blueberries on Wednesday 6-14-23 from 9:30 am to noon and again on Saturday 6-17 from 9 am to noon.
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 is looking good.
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 raised our prices two years ago. 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 (we never have). 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 once I have stepped away from my desk to greet you outside.
