Wonderful experience with blueberry picking at Sinking Creek
By: Jutta Vermeulen (Jul 3, 2008)
I went blueberry picking today at Sinking Creek Farm and what a delight it was. The setup is so friendly and professional at the same time. Driving up onto the property I found parking right away. There was a portable toilet available complete with hand sanitizer. The owners were very friendly and accommodating, providing me and my friends with clean buckets to go picking. They had belts available for over the shoulder wear and hands free picking. Sunscreen, handsanitizer and insect repellant were also offered to aid those who forgot to bring their own, free of charge. The view is spectacular. Rows of well tended blueberry bushes, many different varieties. I picked some of each. The berries were real nice, juicy and plump, sweet or tart. This trip wasn't just for the berries but to get together with friends in God's beautiful nature. Meet new folks, make friends. When we were done, the buckets were weighed and we paid. They even accepted checks which was nice for those of us who didn't bring enough cash because they couldn't stop picking, ending up with a lot more berries than planned. Yum Yum. I'm ready for some blueberry crisp, or muffin, or smoothie? So many ways to create a tasty treat that is good for you too. Thank you Sinking Creek Farm.

Thanks, Jutta! Makes me want to pick there, too! Oh wait...I live there... Seriously, thank you for your positive comments - we try to provide every amenity we'd look for in the same situation. Also might mention the birds...we have a ridiculous number of species enjoying the berries and several birders, laden with high-power binoculars, have already been out this season. Would love to see more comments from our pickers - I know you're out there....
