Moving the goats at Bryant Blueberry Farm!
We had a great time hosting our 5th annual blueberry festival. The sunny weather was perfect for the kids and their families to enjoy the festival activities and chose their own bucket for berry picking. The kids lined up for fantastic face painting, unique balloon creations, pony and hay rides. Everyone had fun with the new activities in the play area, relaxing in the shaded picnic area; visiting the ducks, goats and rabbit, smiling for the camera at the farm’s photo booths, the BBQ and cutting their own vibrant dahlia bouquet. Also, hundreds of buckets worth of berries went home to eat, freeze or for baking.
Thank you for making the festival a huge success!

Bryant Blueberry Farm and Nursery
The thing you’ll love most about the Bryant Blueberry Farm isn’t the yummy blueberries (although they’re definitely a close second). It’s the kidi-ness (ooh, a Colbert-ism) of this family farm. It’s like an oversized backyard, but it’s bursting with berry goodness and some farm animals too. After they’ve picked their baskets full of U-pick blueberries, tayberries and currents, set the little lot loose to play.
They’ll stay busy feeding the goats, chickens and ducks, when they’re done swinging on the swing set and drawing on the chalkboards that are set up throughout the field to occupy the wiggle worms while you pick.
Most families spend hours at the farm, picking berries and playing outside. So pack up a lunch to enjoy with the kiddos in the fully shaded picnic area. Juice and water are available for purchase, but the rest of the feast is up to you.
Special Event: If you love blueberries the way we love blueberries, you’ll want to set aside time on July 27th from 11:00 am – 3:00 pm for the 5th Annual Blueberry Festival.
This awesome event features pony rides, face painting, a balloon artist, and tractor rides, plus berries, berries, and more berries to go along with the old-fashioned BBQ being served up to the masses.
It’ll be your new favorite family tradition!

The Blueberries are abundant this year! Along with our 8 original varieties of early and mid-seasoning ripening Blueberries we have an additional 9 varieties of Blueberries many of which are late season ripening which should keep the berry picking great through September.
Blueberries are among the highest anti-oxidant value fruits, They are high in vitamins, minerals, folic acid and soluble fiber. They are sweet and juicy. Blueberries are one of the most preferred berries in preparation in making pies, muffins, pancakes, cobblers, smoothies, jams and jellies. They can be refrigerated up to a week and they freeze beautifully in an air tight container.
Here’s what we’ve been up to….
Our new website:
The grounds at the Farm:
We have been working hard on our entrance way, planting lots and lots of flowers to brighten the way, we hope to add more and more every year.
We have also been clearing the back part of the farm. We took down a lot of trees but we where able to reuse them as posts for our Blackberry trellis. We will be finishing up our clearing and we will be adding more plants in the fall.
The Kids have spoken and we have listened!
Along with our playground and giant sandbox we have made our kids activity center larger for them. We have books, coloring books, chalkboards, play dough, toys, fishing pool and of course the stars of the show Kit Kat the Guinea Pig and Vernon the Lop Eared Bunny.
Your kids will have a great time here while you are picking.
Shop at the Farm!
In our retail area we will have more locally made Honey, Jams and Salsa’s for sale as well as our pre-picked blueberries and raspberries.
This year a local artist has made new fun farm signs for us. We have a sign that measures how tall you children are, a red berry truck that has pictures of berries in the back that your kids can pose with, scarecrows and many more so you can take pictures for lasting memories.
Thank you for your continued support and for spreading the word to your family and friends about our farm. See you at the Farm!
