2020 bllueberry season

The 2020 blueberry season will begin sometime around mid-July.The blueberries were late blooming this year. The earliest variety we grow was almost in full bloom at the time of the late freeze in May. They were frozen out. The later varieties had some damage but are in much better shape than the early berries. An additional issue this year is covid-19. We are still working out how to deal with that. We will, however, be open. Agriculture is classified as an essential business.

We hope to see you next year. Remember that you may pick your own blueberries beginning around mid-July.

You may choose and cut your own Christmas tree for $55. If you would like the tree shaken and baled, there is a $7 charge for that. We are open daily from 8 AM till 4:30 PM. We have Scotch pine and white pine up to about 12 feet tall. We have Douglas fir up to around 10 to 12 feet tall. We have some Fraser fir, Canaan fir, and balsam fir up to about 7 feet tall. It has been a very wet year and the roads are muddy in the lower ground. We also do not have as many trees this year due to losses caused by unfavorable weather.
