Ingalls Blueberry Hill farm is located 5 miles south of Cooperstown, NY. Look for a sign on State Route 28 pointing you west on Seminary Road. The blueberry field is on a 10 acre field overlooking the Susquehanna Valley and the Cooperstown Dreams Park ball fields.
Blueberries are considered the ‘gold standard’ of superfoods. They are high in antioxidants have been shown to protect our bodies against diabetes, cardiovascular disease, memory loss, and cancer. Our blueberries are rain-washed and touched only by your hands. Besides the fresh air and country exercise, you get a free dose of mental health without a script. It doesn’t get much better than that!
Our ‘certified organic’ status is especially attractive to parents who care for their young children. At Ingalls Blueberry Hill your children are always welcome. However, we will expect them to come back in 20 years and pay for all the berries they ate while their parents were picking.
There is plenty of free parking and available bathroom facilities. Water is good and plentiful for hand-washing and for drinking. The fields are well cared for and the grass between the rows is neatly mowed. People picked over 8 tons of berries last blueberry season. One or two gallon buckets are available for picking and they come with a removable plastic bag in which to take home your berries.
The back-to-the-land experience is an added-plus for families coming from cities that do not have Pick-Your-Own farms in their suburbs.
The farmer, David Ingalls, grew up on this family farm when it was a dairy farm back in the 60s. He and his wife raised their four sons on this family farm. Their sons still retain their love of the land. Coming to Ingalls Blueberry Hill is like coming home. We will look forward to meeting you.
