Estes Farm in Buxton

If you’re looking for a farm that will let you pick your own blueberries, you’re in luck because there are several in Maine. Most places are opening mid to late July, but some not until the first of August. If a farm has a website or Facebook page, I included a link. It’s really important to check ahead to make sure a farm is open for picking. If you want to add someone/something ( e.g., if organic) or notice an error please let me know — you can send a comment at the end of the post.

    Wonderful resource you are creating here, Diane! How I love all kinds of berries…but where we live they are really scarce. It is so great to have them in the juice recipes I enjoy creating. These little gems are powerhouses when it comes to nutrients.
