Acushnet Farm Welcomes the Whole Family For U-Pick Blueberry Season
There's nothing like delicious, juicy fruit in the heat of summertime, and here on the SouthCoast, it's officially time to kick off u-pick blueberry season!
Keith's Farm and Orchard in Acushnet wrapped up its u-pick strawberry season at the end of June, but now it's onto the next fruit and blueberries are up next. The farm is welcoming guests for its first day of blueberry season on Saturday, July 10, where guests will have the chance to stop by the patch and pick their own berries.
Keith's blueberry patch will be open every day from 9 a.m. to noon for the easy activity that's accessible to those of all ages. The farm noted on its website that there will be a distinctive red trailer on-site with directions to the patch and a spot for payment once your pickin' time is up! Just remember to bring some cash along because Keith's only accepts cash payment.
When Keith's Farm and Orchard reopened its fields to visitors in June for strawberry season, owner Sue Santos said it was good to be back. The farm is family-owned and has been operated on the SouthCoast for more than fifty years, but, like many small businesses, ran into some troubles in 2020 because of the coronavirus pandemic, and couldn't open for its annual Christmas tree farm last winter.
Luckily, 2021 has brought many events and activities back to the SouthCoast, and Keith's annual u-pick seasons can continue on. Cheers to another great year of delicious fruit!
