Blueberries are Liberty Ridge Farm’s main summer crop. Blueberries are usually ripe by July 11 and last until all the blueberries are gone (on average until August 10). Liberty Ridge Farm has been growing their own blueberries for 11 years. These tasty, plump morsels are a mid-summer treat that we look forward to all year long. Most of our guests are pick-your-own berry customers; you pick as many berries as you like, and then pay by the pound. Our Farm has fresh picked blueberries for sale in the Country Store for those who want to purchase Farm-fresh blueberries, but do not wish to pick. If you’re not interested in picking, you may call in to place an order of pre-picked berries. We’ll have them freshly picked and ready for your pickup when you arrive.

Berry Picking Suggestions:
Take care of yourself: Berry picking is an outdoor summer activity, so please bring water. It might also be a good idea to wear a hat, sun screen, bug spray, and a light jacket if you are blueberry picking very early in the morning.
Pick the blue blueberries; these are the berries that taste best! Please leave the unripe berries on the bushes to ripen.
Please park in the parking lot and enter the Country Store to check in. We provide blueberry picking buckets and bags to carry your berries home. If you are bringing your own containers have them weighed empty before you fill them full of tasty berries! This will make check out a lot faster.
We hope to see you soon on the Farm!
We grow our own Mums here at Liberty Ridge Farm. They are planted in mid-June. The mums then grow in full sunlight all summer, with careful watering, until they bloom in September!
Here at Liberty Ridge Farm we decorate with mums on the farm to add more color during the fall; nothing like a cheery yellow bunch of flowers on a cool fall day! We also have mums for sale throughout the fall business season. Grab a few to decorate your home when you are done with your day on the farm.
The corn that we grow on the farm is cow corn. It is tasty to cows, no so much to humans. The corn seed for the cornfield maze was generously supplied by Pioneer. The corn is planted in at the end of May. It grows all spring and summer. If nature cooperates it is knee high by the 4th of July! The corn is usually at least 8 feet tall by the end of July. When fall rolls around the cornstalks are 13 feet tall!
Here is the corn at the end of June. Almost knee high!
Pumpkins! October’s favorite fruit! Here at Liberty Ridge Farm, there are many kinds of pumpkins grown and sold. Pumpkins are great for eating, great for decorating, and great for shooting out of a cannon too!
Pumpkin shooters are available after the pumpkin cannon show on the Saturdays and Sundays during the fall.
