2019 BLUEBERRY PICKING!

Members of the Aspetuck Land Trust, have exclusive access to the blueberry patch during picking season, approximately July 2nd to September 4th.
Access: Letters will be send to all current members in June providing a GATE LOCK CODE.
With the gate lock combination you can access the orchard anytime between sunrise and sunset. 

To get to the orchard: follow the trails from either the Wells Hill Road or the Freeborn Road parking areas indicated on the Trout Brook Valley map (the Freeborn Road Parking area is 1.53 miles from the orchard).


All hikers are asked to lock the gate behind you as you enter and exit the orchard and limit your picking to three quarts so that our blueberry bounty can be enjoyed by other Aspetuck Land Trust members.
If you have questions, suggestions or comments please contact Alice:

Blueberry Bush Sponsors Needed!

We had 33 sponsored bushes for 2016 and 75 for 2017 and 31 in 2018! THANK YOU SPONSORS!!!

As the nurturing of the orchard and the blueberry plants continues we HOPE to continue to reinvigorate the orchard with new plants. Our blueberry Czar, Tom Johnson, has chosen a special variety to plant in the orchard and our order has to be in on August 1st.

This is a wonderful program for any family with children or grandchildren. We will have a planting date this fall that we will announce to you soon. You can come and plant your bush as a family though we are more than happy to plant and memorialize your bush for you! Dedicate your bush to your family,  or to a special friend! 

 You can then come and nurture, prune and cultivate your plant during our volunteer sessions or when you have time for a family hike! See it grow, fertilize it, prune it,  pick its fruit. Show your children how nature works while creating family memories. 

Our goal is to replace lost bushes and if the support is large enough to create new rows of bushes as well.
Please contact Alice at with any questions you may have.

MANY THANKS TO ALL OF OUR VOLUNTEERS!!
Your pruning, fertilizing, weeding and mulching has been invaluable!
