July 21, 2024

Hello from Dungeness Meadow Farm, your source for Certified Organic blueberries! Our 2024 opening day for blueberry U-Pick will be Wednesday, July 24, from 9-noon (unless we run out of ripe berries sooner). We're not open every day, as our customers prefer that we open when more ripe fruit is available. So far, three of our four varieties are ripe, but our main variety (Blue Crop) is lagging behind. The weather and the ripening of berries will determine which days we'll be open this season. Our harvest typically runs for 6-8 weeks.

When you reach the farm, you may choose a large or small bucket and food-grade plastic liner (which you'll use to take your berries home), then we'll escort you to the area with the ripest berries. Well-mannered children are always welcome here, but please leave your dog at home, as they are not allowed in the field and there is no shade for them while they wait in the car.

For our Certified Organic blueberries, we're asking $3.10 per pound again this year. We accept cash and checks, but not debit or credit cards at this time.

We apologize for our weeds this year. Although the entire field has been manually weeded two or three times, the weather this spring and summer has prevented us from spraying vinegar for maintenance. We continue to weed whack and manually weed as much as possible, but the weeds love our soil as much as the berries do!

Remember: Sampling's OK; Grazing is not!

We'll look forward to seeing 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!
