UPDATES 

The farm will open for picking at 9:30a on Monday, August 2nd.  A CHANGE IN CLOSING TIME.  Closing at 5:00p sharp.  Please plan to be through the checkout so staff can be gone by 5:00.  Thanks much!   U-pick pricing for 2021 is $2.50/lb.

I plan to schedule a pre-picking early this week.  We are accepting orders at this time.  A phone call or text at 906-748-2048 gets you on the order list.  Pre-pick pricing for 2021 is $3.75/lb.

Parking looks a little different than in years past.  The old lot is closed.  Instead, follow the driveway to the right, closer up to the barn and spruce trees.  Once parked, head to the pavilion for picking directions and buckets. 

WHAT WE OFFER

We offer four varieties of blueberries: Northland, BluRay, BluGold and Patriot.
