Take a free tour of a local blueberry farm and learn what it takes to bring those luscious little blues from the fields to your pancakes.
Wild blueberries grow and are harvested differently from cultivated, "high-bush" blueberries. You'll see what we mean when we talk about "raking' blueberries.
There is no shuttle bus for Friday. The tour is Friday at 11 a.m. Pick up a map at the information booth near the church, and drive out. The farm is about 10-15 minutes from Machias. There will be signs when you get close to the farm.
