Subject: Sat July 19 Blueberry Picking from 7:30am to 3pm
We are near the end of the season. Consequently we will NOT be open Wed but will wait till Sat July 19 to allow for more ripening.
We will open at 7:30am and close at 3pm
We anticipate being open the following Sat (July 26) for perhaps the final picking of the season.
We will publish a row picking report & crop estimate on the website by Fri evening.
Thanks for the many who have come to make this a successful blueberry season.
In the blueberry field we expect: CLEAN HANDS, NO SMOKING and NO DOGS
Since you are picking fresh produce we expect you to wash your hands before touching fruit which you or someone else will eat.
The material underneath the blueberry bushes is NOT sand; it is flammable sawdust. NO SMOKING in the blueberry field. (The drip irrigation does not moisten the sawdust.)
Sorry, we do not allow dogs in the blueberry patch. Good agricultural practices require us to try to keep animals out of the food production area for health reasons.
The price is $2.25 per lb. No pre-picked berries will be available.
We accept cash and checks, but NO debit or credit cards.
Please park facing ribbons hung on rope. Please do NOT park within 10 feet of the driveway. People need to pull off to get around oncoming traffic.
If you bring your own picking containers (they should have handles), please have us weigh them BEFORE picking. You may pick into our buckets, baskets and/or milk jugs.
For transporting your berries home, we provide plastic bags. Or you can bring your own large shallow containers (dish pans, roasters, Tupperware, etc.). If you want to store your containers in our barn, please put your phone number on them. This way we can call you if you leave without them.

Our blueberry varieties ripen in the following order:
Duke (sweet, non acidic, flavor improves with chilling)
BlueJay (a sweet, firm berry that cooks well)
Patriot (a full flavor berry that tastes somewhat like Darrow)
BlueRay (first picks are full flavored; as they have more time to ripen they are some of the sweetest in the patch)
BlueCrop (good all around berry)
Darrow (an extremely full flavored berry with a high amount of acidity until the end of the season; ripens very gradually; it is picked from about week 2 through the end of the season)
Brigitta (a late but sweet berry--most late berries are more acidic)
Late Blue & Coville (very tart, limited quantities)
