PYO Blueberries!

Super Acres Blueberries Economies of scale make it hard for small farms to compete with large-scale farming. One way small farms can compete is by offering Pick-Your-Own opportunities whereby the customer provides the labor. Yesterday, a friend and I picked our own at Super Acres Blueberries in Lyme, NH. It was a beautiful day and the berries were bountiful. Young mothers with their children, grandparents and grandchildren, visitors from afar, folks with their dogs, all were picking and munching amongst more than a thousand unsprayed high-bush blueberries. The Super family encourages folks to bring picnics, and they provide lots of Adirondack chairs for resting and enjoying the scene. Instructions are simple: 1. Pick, 2. Weigh. 3. Pay. (The money goes in a slot so one needs to bring the right change or pay by check.) Buckets for picking are provided as are pint boxes for carrying blueberries home. $2.50/pound and delicious!
