Good evening everyone! I am sad to say we will not be opening Saturday. We do not have enough berries to make it worth your while to come out. I can’t believe how fast time has gone. That being said, THANK YOU for a great first year! We have learned a lot and cannot wait to do it again next year!

Good Morning Prairie Hill Blueberry families!!

We will not be open today.

We are hosting an open house to hopefully find a new owner that will love and care for the farm and cabin.
I personally have loved meeting all of you. Your families and traditions are special and we are looking for a special new owner who will keep the farm going strong and perhaps even help it grow.

We will be open again Monday at 8…as long as there are berries out there.

Thank you!!

Will you be open 7/17/21 before the open house for blueberry picking?
Thank you so much for such a beautiful place to being my granddaughter!
Anniston absolutely loved it!
We are so thankful we made it out to see you Sunday afternoon! Muffins made tonight 😋
What are your hours this week and Saturday?
Have you picked blueberries 🫐 by the pound?

Visit Craig and Nichole Hendry at their U-pick Prairie Hill Blueberry Farm near Bethany, IL!

Had this show up in my feed today. I don't see the blueberries.
Before you know it, it will be the July and the blueberries will be ripe at Prairie Hill Blueberry Farm (Be sure to check with the farm before heading out)! My recommendation is, after a year of being locked down; get OUT of the house when the blueberries are ripe to get fresh air and fresh blueberries at Prairie Hill. Then for great, easy to follow recipes to make blueberry pie, jam, jelly, freeze or make blueberry sauce from the blueberries you get there, see these pages (below).

Be sure to get a few pounds of extra blueberries to freeze for smoothies and pies in the winter, jam and more! It so easy to freeze blueberries and make pies, smoothies, jelly, coffee cake later!! And if there's another pandemic, you can make your own comfort food from the blueberries you froze in July! 😀

I’m so excited for the blueberry season to begin. We recently bought property just around the corner from you and are in the process of finishing up our home. Last season my husband saw your sign and thought he would stop and look for some since our granddaughter loves blueberries. They were absolutely delicious!! I will be making a trip back this season to pick.
I am BEYOND thrilled by my recent purchase. Those close to me know I love farm fresh eggs! I was not expecting this purchase to be so amazing! I used some to bake with tonight and can't wait to eat the rest this weekend. 🥰🐔🍳🥚
Thank you Nichole Hendry and Craig for allowing us to use your beautiful home on our special day! It was perfect!
Are there still a lot left? I was thinking of coming Saturday morning
I have to ask before I get there Friday, embarrass myself and pick a bunch of blueberries (can't wait), What forms of payment do you allow? Just cash or check and debit as well? Thanks!
Made with picked berries ❤️
The kids loved stopping by today, thank you!
If you are looking for a fun outdoor activity check out Prairie Hill Blueberry Farm! Fun for the whole family plus delicious blueberries!!
