We’ll miss you…

Thanks a bunch!

We would like to thank all the terrific folks who came, picked, and enjoyed our beautiful blueberry patch during our 2017 U-Pick events.

We had a great time both hosting old friends and making of new ones! A special shout out goes to all the good people who came all the way from North Port to get a bucket or two of Maassen’s blueberries… to you and all our friends many thank.

We take great pride in the quality of our berries and nothing makes us happier than sharing our crop with fellow blueberry lovers. That is why, come May 2018, we hope to see you all back in our sunny Arcadia patch.

In the meantime, we wish you a wonderful blessed year and may the blueberries last you until next spring…

 

… Although, who are we kidding? Maasen’s Blueberries are too delicious to leave in the freezer for that long.

Cheers!

First U-Pick event at the Patch went amazing… Lots of old friends and new came to check out our 2016 berries and they left with buckets full of little blue goblets of joy.
