Pick Your Own Blueberries in Strafford, NH

Fun at the Plant Sale and A New Farm to Visit

We had a great turnout for the plant sale this weekend and sold out of everything except a few blueberry plants.  We plan on having more plants for sale this summer during the picking season.  As a result, we will not be open for the plant sale this Saturday, May 7. Thank you to everyone who came out Saturday and Sunday and braved the black flies!

Last week we paid a visit to a local Alpaca farm in Strafford.  Sometimes you don’t even realize what you have happening in your own town and this was true of our visit to the Green Alpaca located in Crown Point.  The owner, Val and her daughter Annie were so accommodating to our surprise visit and gave us the royal tour.  84 Alpacas and counting, chickens galore, 3 turkeys and 2 sweet donkeys!   Who knew all of this was only 15 minutes away.  Val and her family hope to encourage others to take up Alpaca farming…they even have a yurt on a hill overlooking the farm where you can vacation any time of the year…check them out and check out the Seacoast Eat Local calendar for more fun farm things to do in our area!
