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 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 will have a great crop again this year. I can't help but
