We are so lucky to have the best customers. Some people tell us they’ve been coming to pick blueberries at our farm since my parents opened it over 30 years ago. We have many families come with their grown children and tell us they brought them as babies to the farm. The above picture shows three of our favorite customers who come every Tuesday to pick. The couple on the right are 90 years old and they bring their friend who is 87. They love to pick berries and we have a lot of fun with them when they come to pick.
Our third field of blueberries has a great mid-season variety called Berkeley which continues to produce lots of blueberries. The above picture is just some of the hundreds of pounds that some of our customers picked from the third field. Unfortunately, the land in the third field does not drain as well as we would like and our customers were standing in water picking these but they didn’t seem to mind. We do not need any more rain!
These three lovely ladies came to pick Saturday afternoon. I made them pose in front of the sign and they were nice enough to oblige. They are friends with my daughter and graduated from high school last year and we love that they like blueberries. Hopefully, we’ll get them hooked on the big blues and they’ll come back to pick each year!
