We have blueberries from around mid-May through mid-June, depending on the season. Blackberries ripen usually the end of May or early June, and have about a 3 week season. We plant various vegetables to be ripe while the berries are in season. Unfortunately, we do not plant year around or sell at the farmer's markets. We are a small family operation and only offer pick-your-own produce. Also the honey from our bees (on premises) is only available during berry season.
There is NO admission / picking fee. We charge for produce that you pick, by the pound. See our price list on this website. In addition, you are welcome to play with the animals. Also, we have started picking by reservation only on the days we are open, (Saturdays and Tuesdays) during berry season. Each reservation is for up to 6 people, including kids. We do this to ensure that everyone has a good experience at our farm. We take several forms of payment - cash, credit cards or checks. Sorry, we do not accept apps , such as Venmo or Zelle.
We do not use chemical sprays. Blueberries do not require us to spray. The other produce is also not sprayed, so we do not know until harvest what made it. Please subscribe to our newsletter to know what we have and when.
We open at 8:00 AM on Saturdays and Tuesdays, and do not allow early picking. That said, if you want blackberries, it is best to arrive just before 8:00 to get a bucket. Blueberries are plentiful so arrive anytime from 8:00 to 10:00 for the best selection. It is best to wear comfy clothes, sneakers and a hat, along with sunscreen. There is not shade in the fields. Also, good to wear some insect repellent. We don't have many but there are ants and sometimes deer flies.
There are horses, a mule, chickens and even two pygmy goats on our farm for you to experience. We encourage you (and kids of all ages) to interact with the animals by providing treats for the horses and goats for you to feed them. Just be careful, keep your hand flat and have fun! Also, if you want bring your dog, please have him / her on a leash. We have a couple of very friendly dogs that hang out with us, one is off leash and is our farm dog, Andy.
We have a number of tables and chairs on the farm to allow for picnics in the shade of our beautiful oak trees. So bring your lunch (or even breakfast!) and enjoy after a morning of picking berries and veggies. Water and soft drinks are available along with free frozen flavor ice for the kids.
We can accommodate field trips on Thursdays during the blueberry season. Please call us for details and schedule early!!!!
Berry season was cancelled in 2023 due to a late freeze that caused all of the blueberries to shrivel on the bushes. We are hopeful about 2024, so subscribe to our newsletter to be the first to know about the next season!
