$10 for $20 Worth of Pick-Your-Own Blueberries

Visitors pluck baskets of conventional blueberries ($2.50/pound) or organic blueberries ($2.85/pound) grown on an 8-acre farm.

Roberts' Family Farm

It started in 1907—Ernest Dodge planned to marry Ethel Rhodes, so he plunked down $600 on 300 acres of farmland complete with a house and barn dating back at least to the 1880s. Using the land to raise dairy cows and herd a family, Ernest and Ethel later sold an 8-acre tract to their son-in-law, John Roberts, who used it to harvest blueberries during his summers off from teaching. John then passed down the land to his son Bruce, who also inherited his father's fondness for blueberries. Today, he still ventures into the snow and ice each February, pruning the bushes by hand to optimize the berries' ripeness come the summer. The farm then welcomes visitors, who fill their sacks, buckets, or hollow legs with conventional or organic blueberries straight from the bush. Bruce and his family even share their favorite recipes for guests to try when they get home. In addition to the blueberry bushes, the farm helps guests blow off post-picking steam at an onsite mini-golf course or cool down with local ice cream sold in their shop.

It was the first time picking my own blueberries & I loved it! It was quick & convenient. They had buckets already there set up for you. They walked me out to the best organic picking area of the day. The shrubs were tended, healthy and abundant with blueberries even though it was very late in the season when I went. And best of all - what can be better than having fresh blueberries without all the work of caring & pruning the shrubs myself!

I have never been there. We went to the upper field. There was a young kid working and he was very helpful and pleasant. We really enjoyed ourselves and the berries are delicious
