Comments from a visitor on May 03, 2011: "Great blueberry field with
delicious pesticide free blueberries. Eat them straight from the bush! I've
picked there several years in a row and know the owners personally. I
believe 2010's price was $8/gallon PYO and there are already picked
available as well. There is a port-a-john available and cold water on hand.
Strollers and wagons are easy to navigate and I'm guessing wheelchairs
would be okay as well. Containers are provided for picking and plastic bags
are on hand to take your produce home. I drive by every day (May 2011) and
it looks like they'll have a great crop again this year. I can't help but
drool thinking about blueberry jam again this summer!"
