Because of the unusual summer weather and the large crowd  picking on  Saturday, Sunday’s picking will be on the  light side. There are  plenty  of  berries still to  ripen in the  coming […]

We added a visitor from India to our list of worldly blueberry pickers today-how exciting.  And we also had a full day of picking without a downpour!  […]

A New Day of Picking

So we were closed on Thursday, but Friday will hopefully be a better day of weather for picking the blueberries.  The field and path to it were both very soggy for most of the day, even though the rain stopped early on Thursday.  We hope not too many people were disappointed and can reschedule their […]
