The blueberry plants at Cedar Grove (formerly Philoxenia) are enormous and mature -- some are 8 feet tall and 30 years old. At the height of the season, all you need to do is stake out one bush and you can pick from it all day long. That's how much fruit they produce. The blueberries are enormous, and if you get to a plant that hasn't been touched in a while, you'll be able to pull whole handfuls of ripe, plump ones down. This is where you need to go if you want a lot of blueberries. There are some plants in the sun and some that get more shade, so they will become ripe at different times -- take a walk around and see where the best area is before you start picking.
One thing to know about this farm is that there is another farm directly next to it, so on occasion I've wandered into the other farm while picking. When I went on 7/31/2010, there was a rope divider in some places to keep you on one farm. I've picked at the other farm (name is something like "nice berries") and I don't really have a preference. In past years when I've come at odd times, sometimes one farm will have fruit and the other won't, which is no big deal because they both have an honor system payment booth, and over the last 3 years I've been going, they have charged the same price ($2/pound).
