We are open this morning from 8am-12pm for blueberry picking. Please plan to arrive at the farm no later than 11:30am in order to fill your baskets before noon. It would be a good idea to wear boots or old shoes as the farm is still quite wet from last nights rain storm.
We are also planning to be open Saturday 8am until 2pm. (Sunday TBA) for blueberry picking and raspberry order pick up*, these plans may change due to weather or crop conditions. (We will not open for picking in dangerous weather conditions) It is always a good idea to check this blog or phone us at 613-548-3378 before heading out the door to avoid any disappointment.
Blueberries are looking really good and the picking is getting easier with each day that goes by as more and more ripen! These are half height blueberry bushes and closer in size to wild blueberries rather than high bush cultivated. You will need some patience to pick these. We charge by the litre or pint and you may bring your own containers if they are ones you have already gotten from us or are clearly marked with litres. We can also provide you with containers here. We have a limited number of milk crates you may use to sit on or feel free to bring your own chair as the bushes average in height from 3-4ft. You may also order small quantities of ready picked blueberries by phoning or e-mailing us. *Please note we can not typically accommodate same day requests as we often don't get to checking our e-mail or phone messages until after we are closed for the day.
Sunflowers bunches are available for sale when the farm is open for pick your own! $5 for a bunch of 8-10.
Strawberries are finished for this season.
*Raspberries are not available this for pick your own and we are now closed for orders.
*****If you are interested in picking your own raspberries, Paulridge Berry Farm is the place to go!******
Prices and general info can be found here.
We update this blog and our phone message (613-548-3378) daily by 6am daily so you can find out what's going on. Please make a habit of checking before you head out the door as hours can change due to weather or crop conditions.
