  • Update for Saturday Picking
    Posted on May 26, 2017
    Good afternoon from the Blueberry farm!  Blueberry picking should be good for tomorrow. The varieties that we have been picking on these past weeks are about gone. Our other varieties are beginning to ripen. Such that, we are opening up the entire Blueberry field for you to pick! It will be ‘free range’ picking. Go anywhere and everywhere. You may need to move around more to fill your bucket. Still not sure about Monday. Will wait and see on Sunday afternoon. I will post my next update tomorrow afternoon.  ...

  • Saturday Blueberry Picking Update
    Posted on May 19, 2017
    Good afternoon from the Blueberry farm! These sunny days that we are having are causing a lot more Blueberries to ripen. Tomorrow should be a great day to come pick Blueberries! In fact, I think that there will be more ripe Blueberries tomorrow than there was on Opening Day! Which makes me hope, that we might be open on Sunday. But, we will decide that tomorrow afternoon. There are some rows with ripe Blueberries, that are outside of the flagged areas. They are marked with orange surveyor tape. Check them out. My next update will be this Saturday afternoon....

    Greetings from the Blueberry farm! Well, we are definitely getting picked over. But, we are not picked out! This afternoon and tomorrow morning will be fairly good for Blueberry picking.

    Posted on June 10, 2016
    It has been a very busy Opening Day. They picked a lot. But, there are still plenty of ripe Blueberries left. In the morning, Blueberry picking will be excellent.  The trick is to go down the row until you start finding a lot more Blueberries. Because, everyone has already picked on those first bushes. Hope you can make it tomorrow. I will post my next update tomorrow afternoon....

  • Opening Day postponed
    Posted on May 27, 2016
    Opening day has been postponed and is rescheduled for Saturday, June 4th. Since my last update, conditions at the Blueberry farm have greatly deteriorated. This is what is occurring right now! It is simply more than soggy. We are literally flooded. I barely got out myself. Prudence would say, ‘Let things dry out and open up Saturday, June 4th.’. And, that is what we will do. I hope that you understand why we are making this decision. It is for your safety and also for the care of the Blueberry farm. I will still post my next update tomorrow afternoon....

There are lots of ripe, plump, and juicy Blueberries! So, we will be open tomorrow. And, more likely Sunday and Monday! I would recommend that you bring rubber boots or an extra pair of shoes, and even a change of clothing. Hope to see you this weekend. But, if not, we will have many excellent Blueberry picking weekends to follow! My next update will be Saturday afternoon....

  • Soggy Wednesday Update
    Posted on May 18, 2016
    Good morning once again from the Blueberry farm! Well, it is too wet and not enough ripe Blueberries to be open this weekend. What we need is sunshine to ripen these Blueberries up and to dry this place out. If you look at the background of this pic,  you will see just one of the several  places that has standing water. It reminds me of last season. I will post my next update on Monday, with hopefully exciting news!...
