Planning your trip:​

​Our blueberry farm is located in the southern part of Cook County, just 25 miles south of downtown Chicago. 

​While we do our best to stick to our hours, nature doesn’t always agree. Please check our social facebook or Instagram posts to confirm we are open before making the trip if there is rain or extreme heat in the forecast.

It may be hot and sunny. Please pack water, a sun hat and sunscreen.
It is buggy, please bring your own bug spray. If you're sensitive, we also suggest lightweight pants and long sleeves.
It may be wet and muddy.  Please wear appropriate covered shoes or boots for picking blueberries in nature.

Please note that we are an organic farm using sustainable agricultural practices. We do not use any pesticides or herbicides.

We do not allow broadcast pesticides, ie. Raid yard guard or other similar products on our property.

You can spray your own skin, clothing and personal property with mosquito repellent in the driveway before you enter.

We are an organic farm with bees and native pollinating insects. Thank you for your commitment to conserving the natural ecosystem.

Make a day of it!
Pack a picnic lunch.

Catch and release fishing available for blueberry pickers.

​Port-a-Potty on site.

Please keep in mind:

Kindly respect our property, this is our home.

Please throw your garbage in the trash bins provided onsite. 

 Because we do not use chemicals on our crops, please use bug spray in designated areas.

We honor Cash, Square and Venmo as methods of payment.

We do not offer pre-picked berries. That's half the fun! 

Staying safe:
There are poisonous wild berries; please stick with blueberries and you’ll be fine.

There are wild roses and raspberries on the property that have thorns; don’t get stuck.

You may see raccoons, skunks and other wild animals. Please ignore them.

We have ten apiaries in a designated area away from the blueberry patch sections. Please do not approach this area, they will not bother you.
No swimming, wading or boating.

Our rules are simple:
Enjoy the day and treat Mother Nature with respect
And kids, keep your parents close by - you know how they can get lost….
