Blueberry Bay Farm now open on weekends

Tuesday, May 11th, 2010

Blueberry Bay Farm in Stratham has joined the farms now open for the season. They offer pick-your-own vegetables, in addition to fruit in season. If you’re starting your own garden or have children, it’s a great place to learn about how vegetables grow and when they’re ready for harvest:

 

We are excited to announce that we are now open weekends (Sat/Sun 9-4) for spring produce.

Lettuce (4 kinds), spinach, kale, parsley, rhubarb, and chives are all ready for picking.  Blueberry plants, raspberry plants (red and black), blackberry plants, natural fertilizers, and soil amendments are also available for sale.

In June we expect to have strawberries, spring flowers, radishes, and swiss chard available for picking.  And finally, we will open for the blueberry season (7 days per week) on July 3rd.

We really appreciate your support and hope you are as excited for spring (and the opportunity to eat fresh picked produce) as we are.
