Quality Blueberries since 1948
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 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.
Directions: From I94: We are on County Road 1000 North just 4 miles from LaPorte Rd. exit of I94 (first exit in Michigan and exit for Four Winds Casino). 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. Note: Construction on I94 between Portage and Michigan City (US 421) often causes delays. Exiting at Portage and taking US 20 to Indiana 39 may reduce delay time. Another alternative from Chicago is the Skyway and the Indiana Toll Road (I80&90).
There are still berries to pick. We have had 3.5 inches of rain this week so be prepared for some wet spots. Most bushes are on dry ground. Berry size is much smaller but most of the berries are the super-sweet and tasty Jersey variety. This is still the favorite variety for many people. We will be open Sunday, August 21and then closed Monday-Friday, August 22-26. Final days open will be Saturday and Sunday August 27 and 28. We expect to close for the season at 6:00 pm Sunday, August 28.
