Although the address is typed in correctly, there is some minor change to it that takes you to the right location. Also, went picking on May 21st and there were loads of berries, I barely had to leave my original spot and filled up with 10lbs in a couple hours. The owners are very nice and the berries are delicious. "
    Comments from a visitor on May 08, 2011: "Had a fantastic time picking berries on Saturday. After getting myself hopelessly lost, I called the farm and the owners gave me fantastic directions and got me there in no time. The bushes are absolutely loaded with amazing sweet berries. The owners are beyond nice and I can't wait to come back next weekend! "

    Comments from a visitor on April 17, 2012: "This was my first time at Bluebela Farms. I have picked blueberries at other farms and I was really impressed and comfortable here. The bushes are lush, healthy and full of berries. The rows between the bushes are mulched so the walking is easy. Most of the berries were from dime to nickle size. I picked 9 pounds of blueberries. They are beautiful - some are sweet and some are still a little tart. I understand that the berries will really be "yummy" in about 7 to 10 days from now. So I am marking my calendar for a return trip. I am also thrilled to be able to pick blueberries now and not have to wait until May or June. Wonderful! "
    Comments from a visitor on May 06, 2011: "My wife, son and I came to Blubela Farm last weekend after hearing the blueberries were approaching the height of ripeness. We drove, AGAIN, from Daytona Beach, 2.5 hours away, because last year Blubela Farm grew some of the largest, sweetest, natural (pesticide free) blueberries we'd ever tasted. Upon our arrival we could see that we weren't alone. There were several pickers already in the fields loading their huge plastic buckets full of gorgeous blueberries. It was early in the day, around 9:00, and the dew was still sitting on each berry. We were greeted by the nice owners who told us which part of the fields had the most blueberries to be found. That info was not necessary because there were tons of blueberries in big thick clusters everywhere. Yes, there were many blueberries that won't be ready to pick until next week, but that will just give us a reason to come right back! In an hour we picked 15 lbs of the sweetest most delicious dark blue blueberries, and were all set. At the check-out counter we found fresh BluBela honey for sale. 3 LBS. for $9.00. (Another price bargain no store can match!) Oh, did I say the blueberries were priced the same as last year? An unbelievable $5.00 a LB.! They even have small healthy blueberry plants for sale for those, like me, that want to grow these great berries at home. The farm was ultra clean, the rows of bushes were expertly arranged and manicured, and the shouts of joy from small children to large adults made this adventure one that we will take next week, next year, and for years to come. TELL YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILIES!!!"
    Comments from a visitor on May 02, 2011: "Guys they are open again this year and the way it looks has a lot more blueberries than last year, they are big and delicious! The owners always there happy and friendly it is a joy to go pick at the Bluebela Farm, my kids love it! After, spring time to cool it off!! We had a great family time!"
    Comments from a visitor on April 30, 2011: "We picked Blueberries at the Bluebela Farm today and it was a wonderful experience. The berries are very sweet and tasty and the people are incredibly nice! We hang out there chatting with them for a long time! We got two large buckets for 35 bucks and we ate about the same amount for free... We will go back before the end of the season for sure! It's conveniently located across from Blue Springs, so you can go cool off after the picking! "
    Comments from a visitor on April 30, 2011: "BlueBela just opened for the season today - 4/30/2011. There were plenty of blueberries and plenty of pickers. This farm has some of the biggest and most plentiful blueberries we have seen. The berries are great. The owners are warm and friendly. Well worth a trip to High Springs."
    Comments from a visitor on May 29, 2010: "Fantastic!! Couldn't find a sour berry or bad bush and the owners are fabulous. Filled a bucket in about 30 minutes. Don't delay or they won't be there. Between Memorial Day weekend and the next two weeks will be the peak. They are awesome. "
    Comments from a visitor on May 26, 2010: "this farm is worth the drive. the bushes are full of berries. the owners are very helpful and very fun to talk to. "
    Comments from a visitor on May 23, 2010:"The farm is great, very clean, nice mowed areas between bushes. The blueberries are delicious. The bushes are so full you can fill up your bucked in a few bushes. The owners are wonderful. It is a little ways off the main road, but well worth the trip. Go pick!!"
    Comments from a visitor on May 22, 2010: "PLEASE go relieve these bushes of their berries. I have been picking avidly for 10 years in the Gainesville area and have not seen anything like this. They are staying open every day this week to get people out to pick these berries!!!! Bring a suit and go to Blue Springs after."
    Comments from a visitor on May 08, 2010: "It was an amazing experience!  I have picked at u-pick farms before with great experience, but this was really great.  Angela and Pedro operate the farm.  This is the first year that they have had it operational.  The berries are just starting to ripen and there was more than enough to pick.  The price was $4.00/lb. They use no pesticides, so it is safe to "sample" while you are picking.  The berries are almost as big as quarters and so sweet and juicy!  I have some baking into a Blueberry Pound Cake right now!  I shared that recipe with Angela via email, and have linked up with her on facebook as well.  We brought along a daughter's friend and that friend's mom and they had a great time as well.  I think in total we picked 10# of berries.  My kids swung on the tire swing when they were tired of picking and mom was not, and Pedro even discussed some "tricks of the trade" with my husband to help my lonely blueberry plant in the front yard do better.  My daughter's Girl Scout troop will be picking blueberries as a part of learning about the land and we will definitely bring them to Bluebela Farms.  The owners also said to bring our own buckets as they try to be as "green" as possible."

I was worried because the best time to pick is usually in June but she has plenty. We had a great time and had the place to ourselves. I would encourage people to visit this farm this month as there are still lots of berries to be picked and they are sweet. The owner encourages you to taste as you go which is helpful when you select bushes to pick from. The 2 of us picked over 7lbs in an hour. "
    Comments from a visitor on June 27, 2011: "We have gone the last two weekends to Monteocha gardens. Very nice older lady runs it and she has lots of blueberries and wants people to know they are open...they have not had many pickers this year and expect to have blueberries through July. $3/lb U-pick or if you call in advance they will pick them for a slightly higher price (think it is $4/lb but cannot remember for certain). You do not have to call ahead unless you want prepicked. Just knock on the door if there is no response to the triangle/bell at the gazebo. She welcomes pickers any day and time between 8a.m. and 8p.m. "
    Comments from a visitor on May 27, 2009: "May 27, 2009 Update: I just spoke with the owner of the farm. They DO have berries and will be opening on Friday, May 29th. There is always someone on the property so they welcome pickers anytime. Their berries are $3/pound."

    Comments from a visitor on June 02, 2011:
    "Just picked 5 lbs of blueberries at Ms. Joanne's and had 10 lbs picked for me. Wonderful!! The bushes are heavy with berries. They have pruned some of the bushes so you have your choice of lower thicker bushes or you can pick from the tall bushes that have more berries(some of the branches are bending to the ground) and less leaves. The taller bushes also provide great shade so you are protected from the sun. The berries are plentiful and sweet. The best thing about Southland is that you get Ms. Joanne. Sitting around talking to her is like talking to a best friend. Thank you Ms. Joanne and all of your wonderful helpers. Great fun!!"

    Comments from a visitor on June 15, 2008: "I was just at Miss Joanne's with my two year old and a friend (in the rain even). We had a marvelous time. The "plantation" is quiet and loaded with berries even as of today. We picked nine pounds in about two hours even while monitoring the little one. Miss Joanne is a lovely woman. She wants to stay open until the 4th of July because of the good crop she's had this year, but fears most people think the jig is up on the berries this year. An added bonus - her berries were only $2 a pound.

The bushed in the back were smaller so she could pick from the bottom while I picked from the top. We picked 4.5 lbs of berries in about 45 minutes but could have easily picked more. Go early (7:15) to get good parking and don't forget your bug spray :)"

    Comments from a visitor on May 30, 2011:
    "The blueberries are ripe and plentiful! The people running the farm are helpful and so nice. My husband and I picked for around an hour or so and had 13 lbs of blueberries. They are very accommodating and the berries are HUGE! The berries are grown organically and they are delicious! The berries we picked are big as marbles and we could not be more pleased. The bushes are fully loaded and dripping with fruit. This farm is very worth your time and effort! "
    Comments from a visitor on June 10, 2010:
    "We have picked there in 2009 and again on June 5, 2010. The berries are not a plentiful as last year as they cut all the bushes down. (they needed it). The ones that are there are large and very tasty. The people are wonderful as usual and it was easier picking but spotty. Next year ought to be a boom! Thanks so much."
    Comments from a visitor on July 03, 2009:
    "We visited this farm today and picked 6 lbs of blueberries. The berries generally weren't all that large, but even the smaller ones are sweet and delicious. There were still lots and lots of blueberries ready to be picked - some bushes looked like they hadn't been touched - and there are many berries that have yet to ripen. We had learned both on this site and from friends who had visited the farm that the mosquitoes are bad there, but they weren't a problem today. We had a great time and definitely will be visiting this farm again!"

    Comments from a visitor on June 17, 2009:
    "My 3 year old and I went to this farm 16 June. I had such a good time with her! The lady, Ann I believe, was so very nice. There were a ton of ripe berries and several more tons of almost ripe ones just waiting for the next visitor. BUT....I highly recommend a DEET bath before arriving and just generally covering as much body parts as possible. The heat is pretty bad but the skeeters will carry you away! I found putting my handkerchief over my ears a life-saving measure since I can't stand that high pitched "EEEEE!" Also, spray your clothes with bug spray too since they were biting me right through my socks! Miss Ann helped my little one tie on a little bucket just for her so that she could kerplink, kerplank, kerplunk!"
    Comments from a visitor on June 29, 2008: "Another very satisfied customer. What a wonderful place. The berries are delicious and the owners are as nice as they could be. They weigh the berries {out of the containers} right in front of you so you know they are honest. It was such a great experience and I also love that they had fresh honey from next door! Blake, trust me all the comments are real!"
    Comments from a visitor on June 28, 2008:
    "Awesome experience. Very friendly and accurately weighed our blueberries. I would definitely visit again. "
    Another visitor adds on June 25, 2008: "Oh my! What a fun time I had with my two boys. We had never been blueberry picking before and met some friends and all went together. We had a blast! We are going again next year! The blueberry bushes were huge and chock full of beautifully big, juicy blueberries. We didn't have to venture far, we started on the nearest bushes and in no time our buckets were full! They had just mowed and used the bush hog, so there was no tall grass to trudge through and I never saw one bug. Super sweet and smiley people who weighed our berries accurately. What a great experience and the pancakes we have made with these berries...incredible!"
    A note from Blake: People rave about this farm, almost unbelievably so.  Apparently, the owners are so friendly, that's what makes the difference.

    Comments from a visitor on June 17, 2009: "Arrived on Wed, 6/17/09, at 7:15 am. Cars were already lined up in the parking lot as they opened at 6 am. My son, friend and I were only able to pick about 2 lbs of berries after an hour of picking. The ones we found were pretty small, but still ripe and sweet. We enjoyed it nonetheless (make sure to bring bug spray!)  I suggest you arrive when they open to get the best picking! Howard's Blueberries and Sellers Blueberries were both out of fruit this Wednesday."

    " My family visited the Williams Blueberry Farm on Stratton Road in Jacksonville, FL on June 15, 2013. A very nice family owns a manicured blueberry patch in a residential area that is easy to reach from I-10. We have gone every year since 2009 to pick the berries here. Great berries but you need to be there no later than 8 am or you will miss them due to their popularity. Partial shade from mature pine trees and nice crowd of people make for a pleasant experience. I would definitely recommend it for 2014, but call first to make sure the berries are ripe as they seem to fluctuate from year to year based on the severity of the winter."
    Comments from a visitor on June 11, 2011:
    "Visited the Williams' farm off Stratton Rd June 11, 2011. Tons of big ripe berries and tons yet to ripen. Smaller farm with nice owner. No mosquito trouble here for us as mentioned at other farm posts."
    Comments from a visitor on June 10, 2010:
    "We chose this farm as a secondary farm. The berries were very plentiful for the first day of picking but there were many many many more to ripen. We arrived at about 10 am on Sat June 5th and the pickings were plentiful. Farm is clean, and the area is nicely cut. Berries are all most easy to pick and stools are not needed. They are very accommodating and we will probably go back again next year. Berries were $3.00 per pound. Highly Recommend! Thanks "

They have you sign in with your name, address and e-mail address so that they cannotify you next year about picking. I did get to speak to the owner of the farm while waiting for the heavy rain to let up and he told me that he offered his fields to the U-pickers completely and did not do anything commercial. I would highly recommend this farm to everyone."

    Comments from a visitor on June 27, 2009: "6/27/09 I am amazed to read anything positive about this place. Don't know if there's a Mary but here's what happened. Knowing it's a little late in the season, we called early this morning to ask how the picking was. The response we got was - "there's plenty of berries". We then told her that 2 other places - Williams and Dowless had already said they were out of berries. She continued on that she had plenty, was the largest blueberry farm in the area and there were plenty for picking. Well, she flat out lied - when we got there a half hour later, there was barely a berry to be found. The comment last year about the dog poop still holds true - there is lots of it. Comments about weighing with the pail and having the scale facing her does not make it a place I will ever go to. "
    Comments from a visitor on June 07, 2009: "We had an excellent time! Very family friendly! The owner was very nice and welcoming. The blue berries are amazing! We couldn't stop picking them! They have tons of bushes to pick from! The berries are $3.00 a pound. I personally think that is a great price! I am not sure what the issues were last year but we definitely didn't run into them! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! Bring bug spray! HAVE FUN! "
    Comments from a visitor on May 27, 2009:
    "We went to Mary's Berries a couple years ago, and the berries were FANTASTIC. The prices ended up being higher than we had seen advertised, but they were still very friendly and it was worth the trip from Georgia. We had heard several complaints the following years, and did not go back. Today, however, we were calling around to different farms and decided to call Mary's Berries again, just to check. The price had dropped to $3/pound, and she had plenty of berries ready to pick, so we decided to go back. It turned out to be a great idea! We were actually the only ones there, so we had the entire farm to ourselves. The lady working there was extremely nice and even let us use some of her bug spray. We took our time and had a blast, and ended up with about 7 pounds of berries. Everything was weighed very fairly and it was just a great experience overall. We will definitely be going back, and I wanted to let everyone know that whatever problems they had last year have been resolved. Very family friendly and highly recommended! (There was also a great little farmer's stand on the way to the farm, though I don't know the name. We loaded up on fruits and veggies and the prices were fantastic!)."
    Comments from a visitor on May 24, 2008: "We went to Mary's Berries today, 5/24/08. The trees/bushes are loaded with berries! We had lots of fun with our children today, just picking berries! The blueberries are $4.00 a pound this year (2008).  (UPDATED: May 24, 2008)
    Comments from a visitor on June 04, 2008:
    "I went to her farm this weekend. Lots of blueberries and they are $4 /lb. However, she weighs the bucket with the berries and the scale will face her. I paid $16 for 4 lbs and when I got home and weighed the berries on a digital scale, I had less than 3 lbs. I did not eat any on my commute home! I will not go back for this reason. Surely the owner knows what the buckets weigh (she encouraged me to grab the largest bucket). It may just be $4 or $5 but she should be a precise as possible with the upcharge of her berries (she advertised $2/lb). That is just some feedback, for what it's worth."
    Comments from a visitor on   June 9, 2008: "I went today 6-9-08 This woman is scamming me out of berries. I picked 3 lbs and she charged me for 4 pounds! At $4.00 a pound I will simply go to Public and buy frozen berries.... She had the scale facing her and was very secret about showing me the scale. I just read the person above and it really happened to me. This woman is rude and I would not ever choose this farm again. Watch out for the Dog poop as you walk...."

Home Canning Kits

Features:

Ball Enamel Waterbath Canner, Including Chrome-Plated Rack and 4-Piece Utensil Set

* All the tools you need for hot waterbath canning - in one comprehensive set!
* Complete with 21 1/2 qt. enameled waterbath canner
* Also includes canning rack, funnel, jar lifter, jar wrencher, bubble freer, tongs and lid lifter.
* A Kitchen Krafts exclusive collection.

This is the same type of standard canner that my grandmother used to make everything from applesauce to jams and jellies to tomato and spaghetti sauce. This complete kit includes everything you need and lasts for years: the canner, jar rack, jar grabber tongs, lid lifting wand, a plastic funnel, labels, bubble freer. It's much cheaper than buying the items separately. You'll never need anything else except jars & lids (and the jars are reusable)! There is also a simple kit with just the canner and rack, and a pressure canner, if you want to do vegetables (other than tomatoes).
