Frequently Asked Questions

How do we find a good place to pick?

Upon arriving at the farm, please stop at the blue and white building. We will provide you with pails and direct you to the fields. We have three fields containing more than 2,000 blueberry bushes. Ample parking is available next to each field.

Should I bring my own containers?

We provide pails lined with plastic bags to make it easier for you to transport your berries from the field to your home. You are welcome to bring your own containers, but we ask that you please stop at the blue and white building to have your containers weighed before picking.

Do you accept credit cards?

Yes, we accept all major credit cards in addition to cash and checks.

What varieties of blueberries do you have?

We have two varieties of highbush blueberries: Blueray and Jersey. Blueray is an early to midseason variety that produces large, dark blue berries with sweet flavor. Jersey is a late season variety that produces medium, dark blue berries with a very sweet flavor.

Do you have blueberries already picked to sell?

No, we are solely a pick-your-own operation.

Are you organic?

We are not organic. We use integrated pest management (IPM) strategies to prevent crop damage. IPM practices include natural control, pest monitoring, responsible chemical use, cultivation, and pest resistant varieties.

Do you have restrooms?

Yes, we have a portable restroom.

Can I bring my dog to the farm?

For the safety of all guests, we ask that you please leave all pets (with the exception of service animals) at home.

How long does the season last?

The picking season typically starts mid to late July and lasts until the end of August. However, the start and length of the season are dependent on the weather and how quickly the berries ripen.
