Pick Your Own Blueberries in Strafford, NH

Planting Time

We just received our shipment of two year old plants and they are ready to plant!  In the above picture, our dog Mac is checking out the new blueberry plants for a brief moment and then he was off on a search for tennis balls. 

This year we are offering the varieties Patriot and Blue Ray which are cold hardy plants to zone 3.  We grow about 600 Blue Rays in our second field and they have always been very successful producing large, sweet berries.   The Patriot variety is also a large, sweet berry but the plant itself does not grow as large as the Blue Ray.  We recommend two varieties for cross-pollination.

This year we have 3 sale dates for the blueberries and we will also be selling a limited number of raspberry plants.  Come visit us on Saturday, May 1 and Sunday, May 2 from 9am to 1pm and again on Saturday, May 8 from 9am to 1pm.  The blueberry plants will be selling for $14.95 and raspberry plants will be sold for $5 each.  Blueberry plants make a nice Mother’s Day gift and are a great native species to use in your landscaping.  Unfortunately, we will not be taking phone orders this year so it is first come, first serve.

If you are a member of Facebook, be sure to check out our new Facebook fan page created by my daughter.  We hope to post some of the customer pictures here during the season.

    I missed the sale last year, but won’t miss it this year. Even so,
    I will be out to pick berries again this year. I love your place!
    I have loved it since I found it by accident over fifteen years ago. I bring my three grandchildren, and my best friend at least
    three times a summer to pick. See you soon!
