At last, the blueberries are ripening. It’s a slow process this year, so we’re opening up only a handful of picking slots at a time. We’ll continue to open slots throughout the season as the berries ripen.
We’ve made some changes to the appointment process. A lot of people who booked appointments last year didn’t show up, so this year we’re selling $5 “tickets” for each appointment slot, which can accommodate up to 6 people (not counting kids under 5).
Here’s how it works:
1. To sign up for an appointment, go to our ticket page. If you don’t see any available times, that means that all of the appointment slots are full (the button on the page should say “Sold Out”). However, we will be adding appointments throughout the season! To be notified when we add new dates to the calendar, please subscribe yourself to notifications by scrolling to the bottom of our ticket page and entering your email address.
2. Choose an available day and time and purchase a $5 ticket (1 per appointment). Remember that each appointment can accommodate 1-6 people, not counting children under 5. If you have a group larger than 6, please email us first at email@example.com.
3. When you show up for your appointment and check out, $4 from your ticket fee will go toward your/your group’s first pound of berries picked. If, however, you don’t show up, the ticket fee is non-refundable.
Thank you for your patience as we figure out our new appointment process!
See our FAQ page for info about what to bring, how to store your berries, etc.
Why do you need to schedule an appointment?
Our property can’t accommodate a ton of cars at once; it’s our home, and there’s no parking lot. Also, most people—especially kids—want to hang out with the llamas and feed them a treat, which means that one of us needs to be present (so says our insurance agent). Because we both have off-farm jobs, appointments let us know when we need to be home. Finally, we think you’ll have a better experience picking berries in (relative) peace and quiet. We’ve been to other pick-your-own farms that are so busy and loud that it’s no fun to be there.
