We had just enough time to fill half a container of blueberries before the storm arrived. This was a great morning activity that we did with our son and exchange student from Spain. The farm has a great deal, half a large container for $10 or a full container for $20. It took two of us about and hour to fill half. We will definitely be back again!
Yesterday we spent a few hours helping out at the Boyter Family Farm in Fonthill to learn about the process of cultivating mushrooms by working hand in hand with them. Here are a few photos from the first stage of cultivating shiitake mushrooms with a brief description below each as well as a link with more in depth information if you’re interested.
