Freezing Wild Blueberries

Our Wild Blueberries small and tasty, but the season is short. However, due to their small size, they freeze well and maintain their flavor for up to 10 months.

Sacha from France Returns for Blueberry Season

In addition to farming, one of the things we love is to host exchange students from other countries in our home. Oddly enough, when we retired, we missed the activity having kids in the house (OK, well I did anyway).

Taming the Sheep

We love our sheep and they are very friendly. But they aren't necessarily friendly by nature. We have to work with them so we can handle them when during their annual worming and vet visits. It takes a lot of time and patience.

More than delicious blueberries

We love our blueberries and love to share their unique flavor with visitors at the farm. But what I love more is having families come and spend time on the farm. I have such wonderful memories as a kid spending summer days on my uncle's farm in New Hampton, NH. I feel so grateful to be able to share that with the families that come to pick blueberries.

The blueberries are coming…

Getting ready for our blueberry crop is my favorite time of year. Blueberry bushes require a lot of work to remain healthy and ensure an abundant crop.  What better way to spend Spring and early Summer then being outdoors pruning and mulching, to make sure the bushes are healthy.

The Legend of Wild Berry Farm

If you have been to our farm to pick blueberries, you know that we don't have a traditional setup. Most blueberry farms have planted their bushes in neat, organized rows. But the bushes on our farm weren't planted, they sprouted from the ground.

The Berries Are Blooming

Such a great time of year when everything turns green and the snow finally melts. We've had a lot of rain this year so it's been hard to get out and work. But we continue to prune, feed and mow getting ready for our blueberry season.

Saying Goodbye to Popsi

We love our sheep and love spreading the joy we have with them to small family farms. This year one of our older wethers found his forever home and soulmate in Oliver, who was 5 years old.
