Pick blueberries like a pro
1. Pick the bluest berries (blue means ripe)
2. Lift or part the branches gently. Sometimes you can find big cluster of berries just hiding under the leaves.
3. Start picking halfway down the row or near the back of the patch. Many people pick at the front of the patch. You will find bushes loaded with berries further down the row.
4. Hold the branch in one hand and gently use your thumb to get the berry off the bush.
5. Come early in the morning before the intense heat sets in or in the evening when the sun isn’t as intense.
6. Drink lots of water to stay hydrated and energize.
7. Wear a hat to keep the sun off your face and out of your eyes.

***update***. Thank you to our wonderful customers who brought this to our attention and for those who share about our farm. I just checked after submitting a correction and it appears it may be fixed. You all are amazing and so supportive!****

Would you consider sharing with your friends that Kehr Family Farm is open for business? Several customers told me that Google says we are permanently closed but I assure you we are open and have lots of berries ready for harvest. We are working to fix the misinformation but apparently we have to wait for Google to verify it by a post card in the mail. We appreciate each person that supports our farm and local businesses!

Big News! Please read our entire post for important information.

We will be opening on Wednesday, June 16th at 7:30 through 11:30AM.

Our regular hours will be posted. We are continuing our additioanl two evenings picking times to expand our harvest hours starting June 21st.

Helpful tips for picking at our berry farm.
1. Our picking hours are in the morning (7:30-11:30am) and two evenings (5-8pm). Mornings and evenings are usually the coolest parts of the day and summer afternoons are super hot and can bring thunderstorms. We encourage you to be prepared for the heat - wear cool clothing, bring a water bottle to stay hydrated, limit your time in the sun. Our harvest typically lasts about 3 weeks but is highly dependent upon the weather. Keep an eye on our page for current conditions and varieties available.
2. Rain or Heat Advisory - We will update our page and phone message for current condition in the berry patch. We do not mind picking in the rain, however we clear out of the berry patch if there is thunder or lightening. If there is a heat advisory, we may alter our hours to open and close earlier than usual. We want everyone to be safe!
3. Containers - We provide picking buckets or wooden carriers that hold pint boxes for your to harvest your berries into. We are aware some customers want to bring their own containers to transport their berries home. That is great we just ask that you keep your containers in your vehicle until you are done harvesting.
4. Working farm - We are a working farm and although we do our best to keep weeds to a minimum in our grassy lanes between rows, wearing closed toed shoes is best to protect your feet. At times you may find bugs or bees in the patch. We do monitor our patch for what insects are visiting our berry bushes. These bugs are usually not a problem and actually help pollinate our blossoms.
5. Family Friendly - We want your experience at our patch to be enjoyable. We provide tiny buckets for our littlest customers and encourage families to enjoy the experience together. Some “picky eaters” have expressed they like eating the berries they have picked. We seek to provide a safe environment and encourage parents to enjoy the berry picking experience with their little ones by their sides. This is especially important this year as we all seek to respect personal space for others.
6. Payment - We prefer cash as payment for purchases. However, if you are purchasing more than $10, we can accept your credit/debit card.
7. Phone calls - We are a small family run business and we do our very best to answer phone calls. However, if the berry patch is open, we may not be able to answer the phone immediately and we will do our best to call you back as soon as we can.
8. Pre-picked berries - if you want to purchase pre-picked blueberries, you can place an order by giving us a call or sending us a Facebook message. We will confirm that order with you and arrange for a pick up date/time. Some times we will have pre-picked berries on hand and any berries that are not for an order, can be purchased during open business hours.
9. Questions - We are here to serve you and are open to answering your questions and help you as best we can.
10. Current health concerns - We realize we are facing a unique time with many having health concerns. We are seeking to keep our berry picking as a safe place. We will not have a port-a-potty this year due to the cleaning requirements. We will have a hand cleaning station available. We ask that all guests respect the space of other guests. We have almost an entire acre of berry bushes and spreading out should not be an issue. Guests are not required to wear masks. If you have a fever or feel sick, please do not come to pick berries until you are feeling well again. If you have any other questions, please contact me and I’ll work to address your concerns.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
