Blueberries of Indiana
The crop looks good for this season. We usually have good to excellent picking, because we have organized picking. Local honey, jam, and juice are usually available. We accept cash and checks but not credit cards or food stamps. We have boxes to purchase or you are welcome to bring your own containers to take your berries home. Picnic tables are shaded by giant oak trees. Sanitation regulations no longer allow dogs in the field. Enjoy a pleasant day in the country while getting a supply of delicious and healthful Blueberries.

From the exit, turn right (south) on Hwy 239 and cross into Indiana. After crossing into Indiana, turn right on the first paved road (1000 N). Go 1.3 miles on 1000 N to the farm. From the Indiana Toll Road (I80&90): turn right (north) on Hwy 39 and go about 6 miles to County Road 1000 N. Turn left and go 1.3 miles to the farm.
Our fields are white with blueberry blossoms that will make the 2018 crop. Bees, both honey and bumble, are busy pollinating the blossoms. Pollination is required for the flowers to develop into fruit. Flowers are abundant this year. If the bees do their job there should be an abundant crop of fruit.
It is too early to predict an opening date. Begin calling in late June for updates on opening. It is always late June or early July. Hope you will return in 2018.
Call (219) 326-8686 for opening and current conditions.
