While we welcome younger children in our strawberry patch, they do not do so well picking blueberries. Children must be at least age 8 to
pick blueberries and should be supervised well.
Blueberries were first planted at Straight River Farm in 2011. In 2013 we picked about a flat of berries to take to market - and enough to freeze some for Farmer Bill's favorite winter breakfast of blueberry pancakes.

and will have a light crop ready to pick in 2017.
