Another  wonderful  summer day on the farm  with warm sunshine and a light northwest wind of cool Canadian air flowing down from the Western Maine mountains. It doesn’t get any better than this Maine the way life should be…. It looks  like another super weekend to be outside and a great time to visit the […]

We have many different people who come to pick blueberries.  Some of our favorite pickers are our veterans who have picked many blueberries in their lifetime.  You have to admire a person that uses a walker to get to the field so they can pick some blueberries. Some use canes, some ask to drive into […]

We will be open  today after a half day of  picking yesterday because of the “on again off again” rain,  thanks to the good old Maine  weather patten. We are into our 6th day of  picking and are picking the Northland  and Patriot varieties of  berries. The picking is excellent and should be dry once […]

Another sunny day to pick luscious blueberries! George and I have been noticing that there seems to be more young guys coming to pick berries this year.  Their motive is to pick berries because they want to eat healthy and blueberries are healthy. One young man was telling of the great smoothies he makes. One […]

We will be open  today as the rain  looks like it passed through last  night. With this  warm weather  the berries are  ripening faster than  usual. The  season is about ten days  earlier than  a typical picking  season but, I believe that  the season will still  last the same amount of time-around  4 to 5 […]

One of the best parts of having a crop such as blueberries to sell is that we get to see old friends come year after year to pick in our patch. We get to hear about their families growing and changing; sometimes there is bad news of someone passing but a lot of great news […]

We’re off to a good start, as our opening day was well- attended and plump, juicy berries were picked.  Customers were happy to know that our price for berries is the same as last year, so jam will be made.  Pies will be baked, muffins will be eaten for breakfast and berries will be popped […]

July 12, 2012 First Day of Picking

The blueberry field is all mowed down to a carpet of  green grass, and the blueberries are bright blue with many full clusters in bloom.  George has done well. The barn has red roses outside the door, and the window box is full of bright pink petunias. Newly silk-screened tee shirts of green, pink, lavender, […]
