Pick Your Own Blueberries in Strafford, NH

For Whom the Bell Tolls

****UPDATE**** The bell was mysteriously returned this week to the farm and is in good condition.  Thanks to everyone who spread the word, hung up flyers and sent good thoughts our way!

Apparently, not for us anymore.  Between October 1 and October 5, someone went up into our blueberry field and stole our ship’s bell.  The bell was a gift from my grandfather 40 years ago and my parents first mounted it outside the farmhouse to ring the bell to gather the kids for dinner time.  Years later, they installed it up in the field to ring when the day was done or a thunderstorm was approaching.  Many pictures have been taken in front of the bell with families and friends  showing off the pounds of blueberries just picked.  Nothing else was taken…just the bell…post and all!  I have contacted salvage yards, pawn shops and antique stores in hopes that it might turn up.  We are offering a $500 reward for information leading to the recovery of the bell.  Keep your fingers crossed and spread the word!

    That is so sad; I hope and pray it will return and the person who took it will feel so guilty….
