We plan to be open for picking on Sunday afternoon, Aug.1st, at 1:30. After a day and a half of being closed the picking should be real good. Come on out to the farm and do a little harvesting. We expect to close at 6p, or thereabouts. U-pick pricing for 2021 is $2.50/lb.
I plan to schedule a pre-picking early this week. We are accepting orders at this time. A phone call or text at 906-748-2048 gets you on the order list. Pre-pick pricing for 2021 is $3.75/lb.
Parking looks a little different than in years past. The old lot is closed. Instead, follow the driveway to the right, closer up to the barn and spruce trees. Once parked, head to the pavilion for picking directions and buckets.
We offer four varieties of blueberries: Northland, BluRay, BluGold and Patriot.
We will not have sweet corn or pumpkins for the 2021 season.

If you have picked at the farm in the past, then you know that this varies almost daily with the changing picking and weather conditions. Changes will be posted here and at facebook/bordercountryberries each evening regarding the following day.
NOTE RE WEATHER: If thunder can be heard or lightning seen while one is in the berry field, then the farm will immediately close until those conditions are absent. Please exit the field right away!
