Because we have so many bushes, with lots of different varieties; the season is long. These blueberries are organic, as the only thing we do to them is fertilize the ground, and mow the grass. We furnish buckets for picking and ice water – but you might want to bring your own straw hat for those hot summer days. (Suggested by a visitor, ADDED: July 06, 2010)
    Comments from a visitor on July 06, 2010: "The owner is very sweet and helpful, they have been in business for a while and know what they are doing. However, you are better off to show up earlier in the season rather than later. We came one year in mid August, and while we did manage to pick berries, there were much less than when we go in July. They raise all of their blueberries with organic practices. They used to do daylillies but are getting out of those and are more focused on blueberries. The farm is located less than a mile from the French Creek Game Farm, so it could be made into a good family outing of picking blueberries and visiting the game farm"
