Cottage Gardens Heirloom Blueberries grows 11 varieties of blueberries. Each variety has a different size and flavor, from small and sweet to big and tart. You may also taste a hint of cinnamon, apple or wildness. In mid-summer, you can walk through the front field and try 10 different flavors. We typically have berries available from mid-July through August.
We also offer u-pick sunflowers starting around the beginning of August. Our garden grows a variety of sunflowers, from rust to sunny yellow.
Check in at the office and find out where the ripe berries are located. Next, choose a bucket from our wall of colorful picking buckets in a variety of sizes. (You are welcome to use your own picking bucket.) When you are done, please walk back to the office where your berries will be poured into a box and weighed.
We have a camp sink available where you can wash your hands before and after picking berries as desired. We found last year that many people appreciated the opportunity to wash their hands after picking berries.
