    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....

Also, the roads are really bad with water over the road at several places. It is our hope to have our Opening Day Friday, June 10th.

  • Post flood update
    Posted on June 1, 2016
    Hey everyone from the Blueberry farm! The flood waters have receded, but it is very soggy. The better news is that the Blueberries are still holding their own! As of today, we still plan on opening the Blueberry farm on Saturday, June 4th. But, I am sure you know that they are predicting more rain through Saturday. So, we will have to do a wait and see. I will post my next update this Friday afternoon....
  • Flood update
    Posted on May 28, 2016
    Hello again from the Blueberry farm. Since my last post, we got an additional 4 inches of rain. Making a total of 14 inches in 12 hours! I took this pic this morning. It is Calhoun   rd., heading towards the Blueberry farm. Most of this stretch is under water. Hopefully things will settle down and start drying up. I will post my next update this Wednesday....
  • 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....
  • Update for tomorrow’s Opening Day
    Posted on May 27, 2016
    Greetings from a very wet Blueberry farm! Well we got about 10 inches of rain this morning! And, it is quite soggy. However, despite the field conditions, the Blueberries are holding on. 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....
  • Opening Day Announcement

    Good morning from the Blueberry farm! Our opening day for the 2016 Blueberry season will be Saturday, May 28th! As of this date, we expect to be open Sunday and Monday (Memorial day), as well. However, this all depends on wether we have any ripe Blueberries to pick on Sunday and Monday. So, check my Saturday afternoon update to find out. The weekends to follow, we will be open Saturdays and Sundays until further notice. On the days we are open, we will be open daylight hours. And, we only take cash or checks. This year’s Blueberry crop is going to be an excellent one! We anticipate a six to eight week season. So, we hope to see you this season. I will post my next update this Friday....
  • 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!...
  • Wet Monday update
    Posted on May 16, 2016
    Good morning everyone! I did not have a pic taken today, because of the rain. But this pic was taken on Saturday. As you can see, a few blue, but mostly pink.  We need to have a lot more blue to open. Not sure if we will be open this weekend. So let us see how things look on  Wednesday. That will be my next post....

    Posted on May 11, 2016

  • Friday Update
    Posted on May 6, 2016
    Good morning from the Blueberry farm! I hope that you have been enjoying this beautiful weather. As you can see, it is getting a lot more pink around here.

  • Friday Update
    Posted on April 29, 2016
    Hello again from the Blueberry farm! The Blueberries seem to be slowly ripening. Maybe I am watching them too closely.  Still not sure when we will be opening. But when I do, you will be the first to know. I will post my next update next Friday....

  • Our Blueberry farm is closed for 2015
    Posted on July 14, 2015
    There are just not enough Blueberries to be open any longer. We anticipate reopening late May of 2016. This Blueberry season was a very unusual one, primarily due to all the rain  we received. So, we want to thank you for coming to our farm, despite the weather.  Hopefully,  we will have lots of Blueberries for you next year. Have a great off season. And, hope to see you in 2016!...

    Posted on July 11, 2015
    The Blueberry season is starting to wind down. However,  there is still a good amount of Blueberries to pick. Serious pickers know it is time to become one with the bush!

  • Plenty of Blueberries for this afternoon, Saturday, and Sunday !
    Posted on July 10, 2015
    We will have lots of Blueberries to pick for this afternoon and tomorrow. Our Blueberry field is a large field. Such that, where we are picking this afternoon will be a different area than this morning. The same goes for Saturday and Sunday. This keeps an area from being picked over. Hope to see you this weekend! My next update will be tomorrow afternoon....
  • This weekend will be great for Blueberry picking!
    Posted on July 9, 2015
    As you can see from this pic, there are still lots of Blueberries left! Friday, Saturday, and Sunday will be great days to come pick. It still looks like we will make it to the last weekend in July.  So, if you have not filled up your freezer, you still have about three weekends left. My next update will be tomorrow afternoon....

    Posted on June 26, 2015
    We had a big crowd this morning, but they didn’t pick them all. Plenty of Blueberries for this afternoon and tomorrow! Looks like our Blueberry season will go to mid to late July! My next update will be tomorrow afternoon....
  • Friday will be excellent for Blueberry picking!
    Posted on June 25, 2015
    The sunshine this week has turned our Blueberries deliciously sweet! And, there are lots and lots of them, too. Which means, not only Friday, but Saturday and Sunday will also be excellent days to pick Blueberries. We are at the beginning of our peak. Which should last several weeks. Check out Fox 26 at 5pm today. They’re suppose to feature us on their program. My next update will be Friday afternoon....
  • Blueberry picking will be good this afternoon and Sunday
    Posted on June 20, 2015
    There are still lots of Blueberries to pick for the remainder of the weekend. It’s still a little wet in places. So, maybe bring an extra pair of shoes. We hope all you dad’s have a wonderful day tomorrow! And, tomorrow is also the first day of summer.  So, stay cool! My next update will be Thursday afternoon....
  • Lots of Blueberries for the weekend
    Posted on June 19, 2015

  • Open Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Rain or shine!
    Posted on June 18, 2015
    Conditions are wet here at our Blueberry farm. However, there are sections in our field that are well drained and have  sandy soil. And, we will direct you there. There are lots of Blueberries, but you will need to taste test. Because they turn blue before they turn sweet. Due to the wet conditions, you might want to bring extra shoes and clothing. Should you decide not to come this weekend, not to worry. There are a lot more Blueberries still to get ripe. Such that our Blueberry season should last till late July! I’ll post my next update tomorrow  afternoon....
  • Fridays are back on the menu!
    Posted on June 15, 2015
    We are at that time in our Blueberry season where a lot more Blueberries are getting ripe. So, we will be open every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday while the Blueberries last. Which may go to late July! We will be watching this storm in the Gulf. Hopefully, it’ll not linger very long. So, I’ll post my next update on Thursday....
  • We’re still on for Sunday
    Posted on June 13, 2015
    Despite the showers this morning, we had a very big crowd of Blueberry pickers such that the Premier have been picked out. But not to worry, there are plenty of the other varieties ripe to pick, for example, Tifblue and Brightwell. Hope to see you this afternoon or tomorrow. I’ll post my next update Monday....
  • Excellent picking for Saturday!
    Posted on June 12, 2015
    There are now lots and lots of plump sweet Blueberries for you to pick this weekend, if you go where we tell you. However, should you go elsewhere, there’s something you need to remember. Just because they are blue doesn’t mean they are sweet. They turn blue first. Then they ripen. Hope to see you this weekend! I’ll post my next update Saturday afternoon....
  • Open Saturday June 13th and Sunday June 14th
    Posted on June 10, 2015
    We’re still waiting for the other varieties to get ripe, before we add more days to open. Hopefully, that will be next week. For this weekend, there will be plenty of plump, juicy Blueberries to pick. Hope you can make it, because this variety, Premier,  won’t last much longer. I’ll post my next update this Friday....
  • Calling all Sunday pickers!
    Posted on June 6, 2015
    I have great news we will be open this Sunday June 7th, daylight hours! We had a lot of picking this morning, but they left a whole lot for you to pick this afternoon and Sunday. So plan on coming and picking a lot of Blueberries, when it will be less crowded! I’ll post my next update this Wednesday....
  • Opening Day is Tomorrow, June 6th!
    Posted on June 5, 2015
    Hello again from the Blueberry farm. It looks like there will be lots of Blueberries for you to pick tomorrow! This sunshine has made them real sweet. Cause of the rain, they are plump and juicy!  We are expecting a lot of pickers tomorrow, so try to get here early. There’s about 12 rows in the field that are outside the flagged areas. I’ve identified them with orange surveyor tape. As in this pic. Check them out. Still won’t know until Saturday afternoon, as to whether we will be open on Sunday. So, look for my update tomorrow afternoon....
  • Opening day announcement!
    Posted on June 2, 2015
    Greetings from the Blueberry farm. Our opening day for the 2015 Blueberry season will be this Saturday, June 6th! This drying out period is just what we needed.  There will be a good amount for you to pick on Saturday. However I don’t know how long it will last. We could be picked out by noon. So, check my update this Saturday afternoon. In a couple  of weeks, there will be lots more to pick. There’s going to be a lot of Blueberries for you to pick this season. We may go into mid July! My next update will be this Friday....
  • Opening Day Postponed
    Posted on May 27, 2015
    The wet conditions here at the Blueberry farm have made it such, that we will not be open this weekend. It’s too wet to pick. And, the Blueberries need more sunshine to sweeten. Hopefully, we will open up the first weekend in June. I’ll post my next update this coming Wednesday....
  • Wednesday, May 20, 2015 Update
    Posted on May 20, 2015
    Hello again from the Blueberry farm. More Blueberries are getting ripe since my last update. However, there’s not enough ripe ones to open this coming weekend. More likely, the following weekend. I should know better by Wednesday. So, I’ll post my next update next Wednesday....
  • Friday, May 15, 2015 Update
    Posted on May 15, 2015
    Greetings once again from the Blueberry farm. Throughout the Blueberry field, the Blueberries are turning pink, as in this pic. One or two are turning blue. So, it is doubtful that we will be open Memorial day weekend. More likely, the last Saturday in May. There are not as many Blueberries on the early varieties as compared to the latter varieties. Such that, the first two to three weeks of our season, we will probably be open only one day out of the week. And, as more get ripe, we will  add more open days. I’ll post my next update on Wednesday....
