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 16, 2010: "We visited Scott's
Blueberry farm on June 16, 2010. Their bushes are full of sweet blueberries.
They have changed to a bucket price system this year and kids still pick
free. They have a table to sit at, free ice water and a restroom. They are
very friendly and it was a great family outing."
