Beautiful Blueberries and a Terrific Time
By: Rebecca Borah    (Jul 26, 2010)

I can't give these folks enough stars. We called ahead and had no trouble finding the farm. It was a nice hour or so drive up from Covington. The owners were great and made the experience a pleasure despite the heat. Classical music, lots of butterflies and even a humming bird to keep us company. We picked 20 lbs. of blueberries and enjoyed dinner at the Sherman Hourse Inn in Batesville afterward. We hope to return with the kids next time. Thank you!

My daughter and I had a great experience at Alpine Berry Farm. The owner was informative and welcoming. We felt right at home. Easy to find. Nice berries. Drinking water available. Barn/store has room to relax out of the sun - a welcome relief in hot weather. Care has been taken to make the berry-picking experience enjoyable. If you go: remember the farmer does not control the weather (bring sunscreen, hat/sunglasses), when the berries will ripen or how quickly the berries will be picked (there may be loads of berries or just a few). I have fond memories of picking blueberries with my grandmother at a local blueberry farm. Not only was it fun and yummy but was also one way my grandmother taught me to respect the land and those who produce my food. Thanks, Alpine, for providing this exxperience for me and my daughter. We look forward to our next trip to the berry farm.

Great fun!

This was our first time picking and all 5 of us - 3 little kids included - had a great time! We all had fun picking the blueberries and enjoyed the beautiful day. The barn was really neat and everyone working was really nice. What a fun experience! We can't wait to use our blueberries and I was so happy the kids got a chance to see where they come from. We will definitely go back!

Wonderful Blueberries
By: Lisa Knutson    (Jun 28, 2009)

This was the first time I picked blueberries. It was a wonderful experience. I took the kids 18, 14, 13, and they all had a great time. The farm is FULL of berries. We picked for over an hour and came home with 10 pounds of berries. The owners of the farm are awesome. We have decided to make this an annual event with the family.

beautiful morning and wonderful berries
By: Christin    (Aug 17, 2008)

The blueberries and blackberries are incredible! I have picked berries at Alpine Berry Farm the last two Saturday mornings and have enjoyed picking the berries, listening to NPR, and being covered in the morning dew. I will be back:-)

Made my first trip here with a friend today- what a treat! The farmhouse (converted barn?) has a spacious seating area with 2 tables and a pool table, some of the children were playing there. They have a clean restroom. Price was nice also. Ive washed and frozen most of my haul, and hope to make cobbler tomorrow!

I attempted to pick at Alpine Berry Farm this past weekend. On Monday, they said they would be open Thursday. On Saturday, I visited this page, and they said they were open for "light picking." I called to find out what that meant, and there was a voice mail stating it would be open Sunday instead. I left a message with questions.

Alpine Berry Farm would not return my call, and when I finally got someone to answer the phone, they gave me a completely different date to pick from their voice mail and Web site. (I see that they have updated their page again after my call with them Saturday morning.)

I have no idea what is going on with them, but it certainly seems that if they can't give a consistent date that picking is available, or even return a customer's phone call, that they do not want my business!

We are sorry for the confusion last week. We are in between our 2 big picking times and there are still many nice berries available but it is difficult to manage the great demand for our berries with the availability. The availability is influenced by number of customers, bird damage and the weather. We try to be very sensitive to our customers time and gas money and do our best to give up-to-date information. We appreciate all of our customers. Please keep letting us know how we can keep you best informed. Kathy and Ted

I have picked at this farm for many years. This is a great place to get berries. They are huge and very tasty. It is unfortunate that you feel bad about the farm. You will be missing out on some great blueberries. You might keep in mind that the berries have to ripen for them to be available to pick and mother nature works at her own pace. The dates given are only estimates and that is why they say to call for more information. Aren't you glad they updated their answering machine message with new info about picking times, so you did not drive to the farm and see there was nothing to pick.
