Note: Beware the copycat websites like the one that stole our name and uses .farm extension: they copied my work and do NOT even update the info! I make updates EVERY day. They use tech tricks to get higher rankings, but have many more inaccuracies and out-dated info. Obviously, I cannot check every farm every day, but I do check as many as I can every day, and respond to all requests.  They don't. Don't support the scammers!

Remember to always check with the farm's own website or Facebook page before you go - or call or email them if they don't have a website or Facebook page. Conditions at the farms and crops can change literally overnight, so if you want to avoid a wasted trip out there - check with the farm directly before you go! And if you know of any farms I missed and want to add a farm, please let me know!   I'm making updates for this year as fast as I can - if you find anything out-of-date, wrong or not working - please let me know!

    Comments from a visitor on June 13, 2009: "Most of the blueberry bushes look fairly young, but there are tons of green berries ready for ripening in the next few weeks. The grass was freshly mowed and even on a hot day there weren't many bugs to deal with and while there is always an anthill or two around I didn't see many of those either. The man that owns the farm was very nice and weighed our berries fairly in plain sight. Blueberry prices were $2.00 a pound this year. They also sell honey from a local beekeeper."
