Events & Activities
Berry picking is generally from mid-July to mid-September; come and enjoy a few hours of peace and quiet at our farm.
U-Pick, Ready-Picked, and Frozen
Russell's Blueberry Farm and Book Barn offers you the best-tasting blueberries at a reasonable price whether you want to pick them yourself, or purchase them from us fresh or frozen. Our frozen berries will be available starting in late July. These are sold in 5 lb. bags for $19. We offer numerous blueberry products including pies, muffins and blueberry ice cream made from our own blueberries picked on the farm. Please visit our Blueberry Delights section for more information. As availability can vary for we-pick berries, please call ahead for large orders so that we can be sure to have enough fresh picked berries, (989) 781-2859.
Russell's Blueberry Farm offers a nutritional and fun experience for school groups. Our group tours include a short tour of the farm as your guide explains the history and biology of blueberries. After the tour of the farm, children can pick their own pint of blueberries to take back home along with an informative and fun coloring book about berries and their history.
The average length of the trip, including the tour and blueberry picking is around one hour, though this can be compressed or expanded to fit your needs and schedule. The cost per child, including the tour, a pint of blueberries, and coloring book, is only $7.00.
Our groups are not limited to school organizations. Over the years, we have hosted hundreds of successful trips from a variety of organizations, including schools, day care centers, foster care facilities, nursing homes, and summer camps. Call Emily Russell at (989) 781-2859 or e-mail her at firstname.lastname@example.org for details and scheduling. Our calendar fills up quickly so call today to reserve your spot!
