    I was at Quonquont in Whately last week and the picking was great. I’d been there for peaches or apples but not blueberries before. I LOVED the berries I got at The Benson Place last year. I’m due to pick there this week.

    I like the pyo place in Worthington just off old north rd. It is also the honor system. Great big berries.

    Quonquont Farm in Whately for high bush, lovely property, and The Benson PLace in Heath for low bush, the grounds and view are amazing. Neither spray their fruit.
