Picking Moves to Breedsville Site
Is the Blueberry picking season now over? No!
This year we are offering U-Pick at our farm in Breedsville, MI, not far from our Bangor Farm until the week after Labor Day.
There, you can pick the most popular late season variety, Elloitts. These are large and pretty berries, maybe not as sweet as bluecrops or jerseys, but wonderfully fresh and very versatile.
The Breedsville farm abuts the legendary Stanley Johnson Farm, where the father of Michigan blueberries bred the varieties that have become local mainstays. Address is 56888 CR 380.
Come and get ‘em!

New this summer….
Twilight Picking – When the warm sun begins to set and the air begins to cool and birds begin their evening song, it’s a magical time in the blueberry fields. The picking is easy, more relaxed. Maybe the sound of a guitar can be heard. And so it will be on Saturdays in August at Moss Funnel Farms this season. Each Saturday from 6 to 9 p.m. the field will be open for picking and Joe and Mike will playing some music as you pick your way thru the field. We’re not called “Joe’s Blues” for nothing. Come join us.
