This is a challenging time of the year for your favorite blueberry growers. It is always difficult to match the ripening berries, appropriate weather conditions for picking, the best times for our customers and our availability.
For the coming week we plan to open on Tuesday 6/18 and Thursday 6/20 from 10am to noon on both days. We will also plan on being open on Saturday 6/22 from 9am to noon. We still have berries ripening and look forward to seeing you on the farm.
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.
