Aunt Mattie's Berry Patch

Aunt Mattie's Berry Patch We are a U-PICK blueberry farm. I have buckets for you to use and plastic bags to carry your berries home. We are a family owned and operated blueberry farm since 2007.

The property was purchased by my husband's grandparents in the 1930's. The family grew a variety of vegetables and fruits. They sold them around the area from the back of a pick up truck. Their original house is still on the property. Granny, also known as "Aunt Mattie", was a Sunday School teacher. She had picnics and softball games for the kids right here on the property. They had 4 children. Th

(MAY 2, 2022 TODAYS POST) We are at that point of the season when we are forced to change our hours. Our new hours are: Tues from 4pm-6pm and Thurs & Sat from 8am-10am. Maybe it's the racoons, maybe it was the freeze we had on Jan 4th, maybe I just don't know, but we don't have the bounty of berries like we did in the past 😢. You have continued to support us through the good & bad years and we are so grateful to all of you!!! 🥰 See ya Tuesday.

Dear blueberry pickers. It is Friday 4/24/20 at 6pm. We will open tomorrow,4/25/20 at 8am. Between those BIRDS & only picking from 8-9 rows, we are not left with a lot of berries. I am sure I will see some of you tomorrow😀. As always, I will keep you posted on future picking. Bye for now.

04/23/2020

Hello to Aunt Mattie's faithful pickers. Some of you live close enough to our patch to hear "pop,pop,poping" sounds. We found firecrackers & bottle rockets to chase the birds away. It seems to be working. Only found 1 bird in the patch this morning. Plus we are closing up every little hole we find. I will keep you posted.😀

04/18/2020

Forgot to say, we changed our hours again. Tues from 4pm-6pm & Sat from 8am-10am. We are only picking from 8-9 rows, so the berries go fast. Replacing bushes this year. Next year will be much better.

04/18/2020

Dear Blueberry pickers, we had a bad morning😔. Not from the rain, but the BIRDS! There were several holes in the netting & they have been flying in & out all week eating our berries. For those of you who showed up this morning, I know how disappointed you were. Me too. We are fixing the problem & will be ready to pick Tuesday, 4/21.😄 See ya soon.

04/15/2020

Hello my blueberry pickers. Today's picking started out HOT, but turned into a beautiful night. Thank you to everyone who came out to pick. Due to the fact we lost a lot of bushes this year, we are changing our hours again. We will be open every Tuesday from 4pm-7pm & every Saturday from 8am-11am. See ya soon.
