New this summer….
Camp Blueberry – For two Saturdays this season – August 9 and 16 – we’re opening our farm up to tent campers. We’ll have seven spots available on each of those Saturdays. Camping hours will be from 6 p.m. Saturday to 10 a.m. on Sunday. No charge. It’s primitive camping – but their will be porta potties and fresh water. If you’re already a Joe’s Blues customer, just send us an email. If we have more requests than spots, we’ll draw names. Deadline for letting us know is July 8.
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.
