KEEP UP WITH BLUE BARN FARM

You can check back here or on our facebook page to see what's going on a Blue Barn Farm. We'll keep you up-to-date on what is available for sale and pick-your-own at the farm. We hope to see you soon!


Pick-Your-Own

The 2020 growing season is upon us! Blueberries will likely be ripe the very end of June and raspberries will follow shortly thereafter. We are hoping for a nice crop although we still have to wait and see the extent of damage caused by the late, deep freeze in May. The blueberries may develop spots on them as they ripen due to the freeze. This won't affect their taste, but it is a blemish.

Picking times are early in the day, 8am - 11am and late in the day 5pm-8pm. Picking days depend on the availability of berries which is greatly determined by the weather, so we ask that you call ahead (240-357-4087) or check our Facebook page.

In addition to pick your own berries, we grow the best sweet corn! Sweet corn is available beginning mid-July. Please call ahead for availability and freezing/canning corn orders.

We accept cash, check or card. We also accept Farmers Market Nutrition Program (FMNP) vouchers.

Blueberry baskets

COVID-19 has affected our picking procedures. Please follow these guidelines:

Park in the designated areas and walk to the field entrance. You will enter on one side of the gate and exit on the other. There will be signs to guide you.

Wear a mask when at the check-in/out tent and interacting with staff and other customers. You do not have to wear them in the field while picking.

Wash your hands before picking! There will be a wash station available at the entrance to the field.

BRING YOUR OWN CONTAINERS. Your containers will be weighed upon entering the field. You will pick into your own containers and you will pay for your berries by the pound.

Pick in the row and color coded area that you are assigned. We ask that family groups pick together. Upon exiting the field, follow the signs which will direct you around the outer edge where you will not be passing people on their way into the field.

We appreciate your cooperation and your understanding as we navigate the changes that COVID-19 has forced us to make. We are doing our best to provide an enjoyable picking experience and keep you safe. Thank you.

Winter project at Blue Barn Farm...
We managed to get the greenhouse covered before the snow began. Yeah! Today, we set the heater in the greenhouse. Next, we’ll have the propane hooked up, but that won’t be happening for a bit. We have to dig a 10’ trench that is a foot deep. Hope we don’t have to wait too long before the snow melts and we can dig!
