JON BODELL / Insider staffWe’re in the thick of the summer now, and that can only mean one thing – well, it can probably mean many things, but only one in this case: it’s pick-your-own blueberry season, and Rossview Farm has plenty to go around. One row of bushes was open for picking last Friday, but that was plenty. Every bush was teeming with tasty berries, and tons were already nice and ripe. It was a blistering hot day, but sometimes you have to make some sacrifices for the sake of good fruit. Rossview Farm is open for blueberry picking Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. You can pick your own, or skip the fun and buy a package of pre-picked berries. The farm may temporarily close from time to time due to weather, ripening or to focus on other jobs around the farm, so give a call to 228-4872 before you head out just in case.
