The Week In Review-The Weekend Ahead

Feeling Blue?

Feeling Blue?

It’s that time of year again: blueberry season! And nothing says summer more than picking your own, as these children, and many others, discovered last weekend at Halfway Acres Blueberry Farm in Campbell Hall. Both kids and adults enjoyed the certified organic blueberries as the farm opened for the season, which is expected to run through July, the owners said, with various bushes achieving ripeness at different times throughout the month. The large field, which has been in the owner’s family for decades, is surrounded with high deer-proof fencing, allowing them to eschew pesticides. The owner’s children weighed people’s hauls under a huge canopy and handed out free ice-pops to the little ones to beat the heat. Mothers said they were going to make jams, pies, and ice-cream toppings, but kids said the best way to enjoy the berries was warm and straight off the bush. (Photos by Eugenia Moskowitz)
