*Week of August 17 – Good to fair blueberry picking conditions in all three of our fields. Our last day for picking is on Saturday, August 22 from 8 to 5. Unfortunately, some of our fruit has passed its’ prime due to the heat and humidity of last week but for now there is still a fair amount of quality berries.
Blueberries are $2.75/pound and $2.65/pound for seniors.*
Varieties we are picking this week: Northlands, Blueray, Berkley, Bluecrop, and Jerseys. The Late Blues are ready to pick in our first field. This is a very large berry with a strong tart flavor that’s perfect for freezing.
Because of the great crop this year and the added heat last week, some of the older fruit which was not picked is becoming soft and attractive to the bees. Pay extra attention as you pick and keep an eye on the children who come with you and may not see a bee sitting on a blueberry.
We have changed our weekday hours so that we can have time to pick for special orders. Please take the time to check out these new hours by clicking on Hours at the top of the page. We are always closed on Mondays.
Covid-19 protocols at the farm
You do NOT have to make a reservation to pick at the farm. We have close to 6 acres of blueberries so there is plenty of room for social distancing. Due to Covid-19 there will be some changes at the farm this season. We’ll be asking everyone to wear a mask to the farm which will need to be worn when encountering other customers and interacting with us at the farm stand. Of course, this does not apply to very young children. We have extra masks if you forget yours. We have a lot of space to pick blueberries so you won’t need to wear a mask while picking.
The golf cart will only be used for people who are unable to walk to the fields or to transport large orders back to the parking lot. We are making adjustments so the back seat will be protected from the front. You will need to wear a mask on the golf cart. Please remember that unfortunately, we are unable to allow dogs within our fields.
We would also like to remind you to come prepared with your own water as we are unable to offer the drinking cooler this year. We will still have bottled water and sodas for purchase as in previous years. We are instituting touchless pay with a chip reader that will also allow for Apple Pay, Google Pay, and any credit cards. Your personal check is welcome and of course cash.
Sorry for all the new rules but we want everyone to be safe and have a great time at the farm this summer! Can’t wait to see you this summer.
