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!

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."
