CLOSED for the season......

We are sorry to disappoint those of you who were planning to come out later this week and pick but your picking experience would be highly unpleasant.

Right now there are an abundance of critters flocking to get the remaining berries.

This is a Green June Beetle and NO that is not my hand holding it.  On my  "100 Creatures that I Adore" list these rank at number 879.  I understand that they have their place in the food chain but it bothers me that when it comes to blueberries I have to compete with them.  But apparently blueberries are one of their favorite foods because they are all over the bushes.  I hold the belief that sucking blueberry juice intoxicates these beetles because when they try to fly away, which they do as soon as you disturb the branches, they fly like Otis Campbell is at the controls.  This means that they will usually hit you in the face, head, legs or feet.  They may end up in your hair or worse yet, your shirt!  All of these factors make picking less than fun.  They have relatives that have joined them.
The Japanese beetles have landed as well. 
Did you know that in your home garden you can hand pick these beetles (wear gloves because they feel creepy when you touch them) into a bucket of water.  If you check your plants early in the morning or late in the evening you'll find them lounging on the edges of the leaves.  They are lazy at these times of day and won't fly away when you reach for them.  After you get them in the water you can feed them to your chickens, if you have any, and they'll thank you profusely! If not, just dump them out and squish them!

We want to thank each of you who came out to the farm this year.  It's always fun getting to know our customers.  We appreciate each of you and look forward to seeing you next year.

We do have a limited number of frozen berries that we'll sell on a first come basis.  Call 540-0866 to reserve some and get an appointment for pick up. 

In the meantime we are going to be making some blueberry recipes and blogging about it here so check in when you can and see what's cookin'.  We'll keep you up-to-date on what's happening at the farm as well.

Have a great summer!

OPEN Saturday

The farm will be open Saturday, July 17 from 7:30 until 12 noon.

There are still a lot of nice berries on the field that need to find a good home!  It will take you longer to fill a bucket but you'll be rewarded with nice, sweet blueberries.  Today, six of us picked over 50 pounds in a little less than 2 hours!

For those of you who might not have noticed..........it's HOT outside!  So, bring plenty of water to stay hydrated.

We will be open later in the week next week so you still have time to get more berries.  Stay tuned and we'll let you know when we'll be open after tomorrow.

That July is National Blueberry Month?

It's true.  For the entire month of July blueberries are the celebrated fruit in the U.S.A. 
It just so happens that the farm still has a good supply of blueberries to help you enjoy this unique event .

Come out Tuesday evening July 6 from 5-8pm and enjoy National Blueberry Month by picking your own blueberries.

Then you can take them home and turn them into something like this.....

Blueberry cheesecake!  Could there be a better way to celebrate National Blueberry Month?

Tuesday Evening picking

There are still berries to be picked so plan to come out Tuesday, July 6 from 5-8pm and get some while supplies last!
