BLUEBERRIES ARE HERE!

Join us, pick the fruit, enjoy the peace of the orchard. It is a wonderful family activity.

Hundreds of hours of labor by staff and volunteers who have been pruning, fertilizing, and planting new bushes to replace past losses. This year’s crop reflects those efforts and has been bountiful to say the least. The time is now to pick some berries; peak production is probably the second and third weeks in July with many varieties extending the season into August. Early morning and late afternoon are great times to hike in. Park on Freeborn Road and the shade of the trees will cool you on your trek. Once in the patch check out the berry bushes near the woods. Those bushes are just beginning to ripen and are shaded in late afternoon.
