August 17, 2019

Our blueberry season is just past its peak; we anticipate being open for another three weeks or so.

We plan to open again on Saturday, August 17; Monday, August 19; Saturday, August 24 from 9-4; and Thursday, August 22 from 4-7 PM. After Saturday's harvest, we'll continue to check the field and announce our next U-Pick days. For our certified organic blueberries, we ask $2.65 per pound (recently reduced from $2.85).

When you arrive, you will be given a bucket and liner, then will be assigned a place to pick your berries. We keep track of which areas have been picked, and will direct you to the area that offers the ripest fruit at your time of arrival.

Well-supervised children are always welcome here, but we ask that you leave your fur-babies at home, as they are not allowed in the field and there is no shade for them while they wait in the car.

Some of our customers (specifically Hotmail and Outlook subscribers) have reported that our email notifications were sent to their junk mail. We checked with our webmaster, who said that you should add us to your Safe Senders list to avoid this in the future.

In order to reduce SPAM, our announcements will follow a different protocol this year: they will be posted in the evening and will be sent throughout the night, arriving in your email in the morning. This will mean a slight delay from sending to receiving, but is designed to guard against SPAM, Blacklisting, etc. Sooo...check your emails in the mornings for the latest news from your local Certified Organic blueberry farm!

We'll see you in the berry field!

Welcome to Dungeness Meadow Farm

We are a Certified Organic family farm near Sequim, Washington with a commitment to your well-being. We grow four varieties of blueberries on 2.5 acres, and it is our pleasure to offer an enjoyable U-pick experience to our customers. We encourage you to consider our farm as your source for top quality, great tasting, and healthful blueberries. 229_0.JPG We use only USDA/WSDA authorized practices, amendments and listed products to enhance our farm. I continually research new methods to find a balance in our practices. Our fields are covered with netting, which avoids the issues brought on by birds and other wildlife. (Who could blame them though!) We receive water directly from the Dungeness River. We have great soil and wonderful conditions for optimum healthy fruit. Our kids are the taste testers, quality control techs, and helpers during the harvest.

I (Blueberry Dave) have been interested in organic growing methods since I was a young boy growing up in Edmonds. My neighbors were immigrants who came to America with gardening experience. They did not understand the need to spray chemicals or other additives onto their families’ food. We maintain that same standard for growing wholesome, healthful, luscious food for your table and ours.

Warning: Do not be misled by farms that advertise certified organic status, unless they can provide the certification to back up their claims. Our certificate (updated each year) is posted at our checkout counter, or you can contact the USDA or the WSDA for verification.

We hope you will join the many people who return to Dungeness Meadow Farm each year for their annual supplies of blueberries. We are open several days each week, depending on available fruit. Check this website or call our information number (360-582-1128) after 8 AM to see what’s happening that day.

We look forward to seeing you in the berry field!
