Blueberry Harvest Update – July 16, 2016

Saturday, July 16, 2016

Wild Maine lowbush blueberries ripen at different times.  But unlike strawberry farms, we do not begin the harvest or open the U-Pick field until 95% or more of the wild blueberries are ripe.

This photo was taken today while I spent some time scouting the blueberry fields.   We estimate that it will be close to August 1, 2016 when our blueberry harvest begins.

If you have yet to order your 10lb. boxes of blueberries, you can quickly place your order here: Reserve Your Blueberries Here

Harvest updates will be added to the website, the Facebook page, and e-mailed to those on our e-mailing list as the season gets closer. (Join the E-mailing List Here)

I observed plants in the U-Pick fields that were so full of wild blueberries, the plants were leaning under the weight.  If you have ever picked lowbush wild blueberries, you know that’s a handpicker’s dream!

We look forward to seeing you soon!
