Comments from a visitor on September 20, 2011: "My hubby & I took our son a couple years ago to Farmer Jacks for tractor pulled hay ride to pick pumpkins.

Comments from a visitor on September 20, 2011: "This place was So much fun! They have a play area for the children, pumpkins already picked....tractor pulled hay rides to the fields where you can go on a corn maze, pumpkin pick. You can pick your own apples & so forth. Really nice family too! I thought they were a little pricey but didn't mind for family fun. (Wish they gave military discount-I believe they are Retired Air Force family)"
Comments from a visitor on July 07, 2011: "Blueberries are $2.50/lb; that's by far the highest price in south Jersey!"
Comments from a visitor on July 05, 2008: "Went blueberry picking June 27, 2008. The crop is plentiful and the berries are big. Three of us went and we picked over 22 pounds in about 2 hours."
Another visitor writes on July 26, 2008: "We first stopped by Conte Farms -- we've been here many times and given this place a try for blueberry picking the past two years. We generally find that the berries here are overpicked and today was no exception. It's also a very commercialized operation, and although the tractor ride to the fields is fun, the prices are ridiculous: $1.80 for pick your own this year. It's hard to recommend this place for pick-your-own blueberries but we've stopped by here for the past several years. Why? AMAZING apple cider donuts."

Comments from a visitor on July 31, 2010: "My husband and I just returned from a wonderful visit to Fred + III farm in Burlington County, NJ. Fred is a wonderful character who we enjoyed talking with. We were thrilled that there was plentiful picking this late in the season! The bushes were a good height for easy and quick picking and were very tasty... sweet but with a good tartness. The fields surrounding the farm are a lovely sight as well. We picked 12 pounds (or approximately 10 quarts) of berries for $15.00! We will definitely be returning next year. "
Comments from a visitor on July 06, 2010: "Stopped there on July 5, 2010. Due to lack of rain berries were small and some dried up but there were plenty of good tasting berries to pick. Fred is a delight as is his wife. Don't think they'll be picking too much more this season."
Comments from a visitor on July 01, 2010: "We visited Fred + III on 30 June. There were plenty of berries to be picked. The sign for the farm is kind of small, but we had no trouble locating it. Just park where you see other vehicles, and if no one else is there, park near the silver trailer that's parked by a tree. There's an old beat-up pick up truck with a sign telling you what to do (take a can, pick berries, come back to weigh and pay) though Fred will have to tell you which area is open for pick your own. He does provide large cans that you strap on to collect your berries in, but if you didn't bring anything to carry them home, he'll give you a cardboard box for $1. I forgot to ask if he grows organically or what, but based on the weeds/grasses in between the rows of blueberries, he doesn't go overboard with the herbicides, at least!"
Comments from a visitor on August 17, 2009: "Went blueberry picking today (8/17) at Fred-Plus-Three and the blueberries were plentiful and gorgeous! And of course Fred is a total delight... Also just want to put in a plug for River Side Homestead Farm. We've picked blackberries there for the last two summers (end of July/early August) and it has been a great experience. It's a small farm - great fun for kids - and the blackberry picking is easy and plentiful. We've also gotten eggplant, peppers, tomatoes, and herbs there. (And some wonderful potatoes that they dig for you)."
(UPDATED: August 17, 2009)
Comments from a visitor on August 05, 2009: "This farm was a real treat! Berries were big blue, plentiful and cheap. Fred and Ginnie are a trip. If he is 87, like he claims to be, then we better all start eating blueberries. A great all-around experience!"
Comments from a visitor on July 24, 2009: "July 24 - We visited Fred's and were very disappointed. The rows between the blueberry bushes were filled with grass that was knee high. The section of bushes we were directed to were just starting to become ripe and contained mostly white berries. Those that were ripe were big but sour. Fred was nice and a real character, but we've found other farms nearby that are much better."
Comments from a visitor on July 12, 2009: "Fred and his wife are super sweet and amazing. My friend and I went to the blueberry farm for the first time today and we had such a great time. The berries are more than plentiful and the whole set-up is so relaxed and well organized. There are no frills, just really nice people and huge amounts of sweet, large, well care for blueberries. We had such a blast just picking our way through the fields and afterwards we had a really great conversation with Fred and his beautiful wife. Tennis shoes are recommended and bring your own container so the berries don't get crushed in bags. You will want to adopt Fred and his wife into your family after you meet them."
Comments from a visitor on July 12, 2009: "We visited Fred's farm in early July 2009 (July 3rd 2009) and picked our Blueberries, and plenty of them. We were on a visit to NJ from Michigan and went to the Farm with our hosts. We all really enjoyed it very much. Fred and his wonderful family were very nice people. If I could, I will drive all the way from Michigan again !! (a bit exaggeration here with gas prices and distance) "
Comments from a visitor on July 01, 2009: "July 1, 2009: Went to this farm with my daughter today. Fred & his wife are amazing! Farm is great - tons of berries. $1.25 per pound. They provide cans to pick into (can strap them around your waist to carry). Each can holds 4 pounds. Berries are very sweet and tasty...large berries! Fred & his wife are very accommodating, nice, friendly, and helpful! I drove from outside of Philadelphia to this farm (about a 45 mile drive - an hour) and will drive there again before blueberry season is over as I was so impressed with the produce as well as the owners. Note: Although they give you collection cans, you need to bring something to haul your berries home! "

Comments from a visitor on June 24, 2012: "I went to Wells Farm on Saturday, June 23rd with all my children ranging from 21 - 5. We had a great time!! The owners are friendly and the farm is very clean and organized. We grabbed our buckets and got on the tractor, which was free! The other visitors were all friendly and we had a lot of laughs, memories and of course delicious, huge, blueberries! The owners were very accomadating to weighing our harvest for our blueberry picking competition. $1.69/lb is all we paid for an awesome day!"
Comments from a visitor on June 08, 2012: "We go to this farm EVERY YEAR! They seem to have a very long season ( different varieties?) they are kind and helpful. Free rides to the picking and back to parking. NOT one of those farms that charge you for just being there. Old school, let you use their pick-buckets, take you out to where the BEST BERRIES are, and do NOT OVER MANAGE! The BEST BERRIES EVER!! You can bring the kids and grandparents... I always go several times during the season, and have NEVER had a bad experience. Try the honey too. Can't wait to get back for some more of those BIG FAT BLUE BERRIES!"
Comments from a visitor on July 06, 2010: "we did visit Edward Wells (Retreat Road) last week. They were pretty much at the end of the season but picking was great. Would recommend them as well."
Comments from a visitor on July 24, 2009: "July 24 - We've visited Well's Blueberry farm several times over the past few years and it's always great. They have many sweet varieties that ripen at different times. The plants are well cared for and the sandy rows between them are easy to walk. There is a wagon to carry you to the farther fields. Very friendly. Today our kids ate almost as many as they put in the bucket to bring home! A top-notch farm."

The young ladies at the farm stand were polite and helpful, and the orchards were easily accessible and still laden with fruit. Highly recommended!"
Comments from a visitor on October 11, 2010: "Just returned from a trip to Mood's to pick my own apples. My 13 year old son and I had a wonderful time, walking through the orchards and picking out just the apples that we needed. It is really nice to be able to pick different varieties that you want, unlike some of the other "big" pick-your-own farms in the area that only allow you to pick one variety of apple. Prices were reasonable, and we also left with a dozen warm apple cider donuts that were delicious! Highly recommend this farm. "
Comments from a visitor on September 25, 2010: "My daughters and I had a wonderful time picking apples. They were plentiful and the directions we had to follow were very simple for picking, and paying. We will certainly be back."
Comments from a visitor on July 20, 2009: "What a great experience my three children (9, 7, and 4) and I had today. Moods Farm has a friendly atmosphere. Cute Farm stand that includes veggies, fruits, jams and YUMMY homemade apple cider donuts. We traveled from Maryland for the second year and the donuts, especially if you get them warm are the best. The picking procedure is simple. They weigh your bucket that you bring or you can buy little cardboard buckets for 25 cents. We picked blackberries, blueberries and white peaches that were all delicious and very inexpensive. The blueberries were $1.15 a pound, blackberries were$1.40 and the peaches were 85 cents. I had a ton of fruit all for about $6. They have a great picnic area too. We will be back again soon. Great find and I found it on this website. Thank You. "
