Offers u-pick blueberries. We added blueberries to our farm in 2005. We planned to sell the blueberries in a U-pick fashion with a twist. Since blueberries are in short supply in our area we initially offered customers a chance to “buy-in” to our blueberry farm. Those “prepurchasing” customers received a discounted price and a selected section of the patch to pick the amount of berries pre-purchased. Each of those customers pays us each year for a certain amount of blueberries for the 5 years of the contract. The catch is they get to pick that amount of blueberries when the patch comes into production. We planted 430 blueberry bushes in 2005 and had a few berries in 2006. Things were looking very good in 2007 as the patch was full of white blossoms. However, the weather changed and we had two nights of 17 degree F temperatures which destroy the entire blueberry crop and even killed a couple of our peach trees. 2008 turned out to be a very good year for our patch. We were spared hail that destroyed the entire crop of another blueberry patch only 12 miles away. We had enough blueberries for all of our prepurchasing customers and more for others who happened to stop by. The 2009 crop was also very good. The patch produced about 125% of what it produced in 2008. 2010 produced another nice crop with another yield increase of more than 125%. If you missed picking at our patch in 2010 please send us an email and we will put you on our email list next spring. Plan to come early before it gets hot and while the largest varieties of berries are ripe.
