Berry Patch Blueberries

We visited The Blueberry Patch Farm in Leaburg, OR along the MacKenzie River for our second blueberry harvest of the year. They are nestled along the river in a cozy little pocket of river bottom land. They have approx. 6,000 plants with around 9 varieties of berries. We picked two full buckets in no time and were very pleased with our haul. The owner welcomed us to browse the different varieties so our taste buds were given a good work out. The tastes varied from mild and meaty to smaller, chewier and with pronounced blueberry flavor. All in all a good selection of berries. The parking was pleasant as it was beneath fruit trees along the drive in so our Scotties had some shade while we picked. I enjoyed the stand with its antique scale and very friendly staff. We will definitely return to the Blueberry Patch Farm next year.
