We have had 3 good weeks of blueberry picking here at Berryfield Farm, but in the words of singer/songwriter Iris DeMent "Easy is gettin harder all the time". We still have pockets of berries where you can fill multiple buckets, but these areas are shrinking every day. The birds are relentless, they start earlier than we do, never take a break, tag team constantly, and don't quit until it is dark. We are fighting but the birds are winning. We will be open this week Monday thru Friday from 8 until noon and in the evenings only by appointment.
There will be NO blackberries this season due to the tough winter.
See our schedule for complete days and hours during the season.
WEATHER ALERT. YES - WE CLOSE WHEN THERE IS LIGHTNING NEARBY. NO - WE ARE NOT METEOROLOGISTS AND CAN'T TELL YOU IF WE ARE GOING TO GET LIGHTNING OR NOT. WE MONITOR THIS SITE TO DETERMINE IF LIGHTNING IS IMMINENT. WE EXPECT YOU TO MONITOR THE WEATHER IN YOUR OWN WAY AND MAKE A RESPONSIBLE DECISION.
In most cases - storms move through quickly and you can sometimes wait it out in your car - safest place to be during lightning.
