Can I bring my dog?
Yes, of course! We love all dogs, big and small. We just ask that you bring them on their leash and pick up after them.
Do you have restrooms?
Yes, we have two restrooms with running water near our building and one portajohn in our farthest field for your convience.
Do we need to bring our own containers, or do you provide them?
No, you do not need to bring containers. We ask that you pick into our buckets as a way for us to better regulate who has yet to pay. We have had issues with some dishonest people stealing berries by bringing their own buckets and putting them right into their vehicle, so we have these rules in place to help.
What makes blueberry honey different than regular clover honey?
Blueberry honey is collected during the time honey bees are pollinating blossoms on blueberry bushes. During this time, blueberries are pretty much the only fruits in blossom, resulting in a delishious honey that is slightly darker and richer than the typical clover honey.
What is the difference between Preserves and Spreads?
The Blueberry Preserve has a chunky consistency with pieces of fruit inside and is sweetened with sugar.
Do you sell blueberry plants?
No, we do not sell blueberry plants. If you are looking for blueberry bushes to plant it is best to check plant nurseries.
How far in advance do I need to place my order?
We recommend placing orders at least one day in advance, however, most of the time you are able to call the day of and place an order for pickup.
What are the best days to come pick?
We usually recommend coming to pick sometime between Thursday and earlier in the day Saturday. Our weekends tend to be very busy, so by Sunday we can be a bit picked over. It's best to come later in the week after the busy weekend to let the berries ripen up.
Does a bigger blueberry mean a better blueberry?
No! Most people are looking for a big sweet berry, however, bigger does not necessarily mean sweeter when it comes to blueberries. The more rain a blueberry plant gets, the bigger the berries on the bush will be.
