It's Blueberry Picking Time at Ragged Hill Orchard - West Brookfield, MA
Ragged Hill Orchard

August 2011: Mid-summer and the picking is easy, especially if you visit Ragged Hill Orchard in West Brookfield, MA. Located atop a country hill, Ragged Hill Orchard provides a wonderful place to escape and wander the hills. This time of year, the blueberries are ripe and ready, and the red raspberries are sweet and at peak.
On my recent visit to Ragged Hill, we filled buckets of plump berries. The orchard owners provide buckets with roped handles for convenience, and also quart and pint containers for taking your fruit home. Or, you can measure your harvest and transfer to your own containers.
When I was there, the blueberries were $4 per quart, and the raspberries were $4 per pint. Excellent prices for fresh-picked fruit and a morning of fresh, outdoor exploration.
In the fall, Ragged Hill Orchard offers numerous varieties of apples for picking, and I fully intend to come back to this lovely orchard and fill a basket with apples.
