Closed for the Blueberry Season! ......we will re-open in October with PUMPKINS!
At Blueberries Olé! LLC, we offer fresh fruits and berries that are free from pesticide. When you visit our farm, you experience picking berries straight from the bushes.
Below are just a few of the items you kind find out at the U-PICK farm:
We offer several varieties of blueberries and introduce new varieties as old plants tire out, in an effort to provide quality fruit over a more extended grow period. Our Blueberry U-Pick season runs from March or April (weather dependent) until July 4. The 2020 Blueberry picking season opens April 22, 2020.
The Freedom variety of blackberries are thorn-less and begin ripening in June-July and harvest into September.
Through the Spring and Summer the Albion variety of strawberries are ripe and delicious! We don’t use ANY sprays to manage pesty mites that can plague strawberries. Instead we use IPM (integrated pest management.... good bugs eat the bad) as our method of controlling those pests.
This year Mike planted a row of daffodil bulbs in with the strawberries, offering flowers for customers to cut. In addition, we grow lavender.
In summer, Carol plants her cherry tomatoes which harvest later in the summer and into fall.
Jeremy, the beekeeper, keeps his hives at our farm. The bees pollinate the blueberry flowers and we sell the honey at our stand.
We have an expert jam maker who comes and picks our fruit and makes delicious jams such as Strawberry-Tarragon, Blueberry-Lime, and Summer Apricot....... to name a few. They’ve become a popular hit with our customers.
PUMPKINS: We planted pumpkins in June......stay tuned for updates on our Fall 2020 crop! We planted several varieties including: Jarrahdale Large, Casperita (tiny white ones), Blaze, Cinnamon Girl, Champion, Wee-B-Little (tiny orange), Orange Smoothie, Musque de Provence,Marina Di Chioggia (fairytale), Racer, Racer Plus
Good friends, the Ferrari’s, grow olives using organic practices. They harvest the olives in the Fall which produce delicious Extra Virgin olive oil. The oil is sold at our stand.
We are always thinking of and planning new products to offer at our U-Pick..... stay tuned!
