Our blueberry season is at its peak, and the blueberries are bursting off of the bushes! We anticipate being open for another month or so, but this is Prime Time.
We plan to open again on Wednesday and Thursday, August 7 and 8 from 9-6:00; and Saturday and Sunday, August 10 and 11 from 9-4:00. After that, 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 direct you to the area that offers the ripest fruit at your time of arrival. Our bucket liners are either reusable plastic, or a limited number of mesh bags which just arrived. Those washable/ reusable bags will be available for $2.00 each. The plastic bags are very sturdy, and can be brought for your next visit to our farm, or re-used for a variety of purposes such as harvesting veggies, carrying books from the library, or grocery shopping.
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!
