Pick Your Own Blueberries in Strafford, NH

The Real Hunger Games!

Not the movie…the new cookbook recently written by Fifi O’Neill titled The Romantic Prairie CookbookRomantic Prairie Style Cookbook

which features many great farms and their recipes including two recipes from Berrybogg Farm.  Fifi and Mark Lohman came to the farm back in June of 2011 and we had a great time watching a photo shoot evolve during a 90 degree day which culminated with a huge thunderstorm and a power outage!  Despite the obstacles, the results are fantastic and the entire book is a work of art.  I can’t wait to try the Dark Chocolate Chip Raspberry cookies from Raspberry Fields Farm, the Blueberry Sour Cream Coffee Cake from Lizzie McGraw, and Fifi’s own Tourtiere recipe which is a staple at the holidays in our neck of the woods.

March has been a busy month of pruning at the farm in temperatures sometimes 40 degrees above the norm for this time of year.  Time will tell what the increased temperatures will do to the plants this season but when we had a similar warm spring two years ago it pushed up our opening date by 10 days. However, warm temperatures or not, we will still hold our annual plant sale on May 5 and May 6 with lots of blueberry, raspberry, blackberry plants and peach trees for sale.  Stay tuned for more information.

This year we are planning on holding cooking classes in the new farm kitchen during the summer and fall with help from local caterer extraordinaire Chef Randy Brisson.  We will be updating the website with more information on these events but we hope to offer a wide range of classes using local ingredients and of course blueberries!

  1. I do not even know how I stopped up right here, but I believed this post used to be great.
    I don’t recognise who you’re but certainly you’re going to a well-known blogger when you aren’t already.
    Cheers!

  2. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be really something which I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complex and very broad for me. I’m looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!
