'You Pick Em' Certified Organic Blueberries

IMG_2418Ingalls 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 of young children who care about food safety since we are pesticide free. And then after the parents have finished educating their children about eating off the land, the kids can go and feed and pet our sheep in the pasture next to the berry field. 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.

Note, this may be 'New York' but it is not the City. There is plenty of free parking here and your cars are safe. Bathroom facilities are available on site. 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. Customers 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 the benefits of Pick-Your-Own farms in their suburbs.

Our 2022 price has only increased 25 cents per pound since last year and remains lower than the NYS average price for certified organic blueberries at $4.00/lb.

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.

Welcome to Ingalls Blueberry Hill

NOFA – NY Certified Organic, LLC #2010061

Please Note: Our berries are much better than the Northeast average!

Tasting berries is acceptable, but ‘no grazing’. Grazing is for cows and sheep. Small children (under 3) will be required to return in 20 years and pay for all the berries they ate.

Bathroom facilities are located on the west side of the field – an out-house with soap and water.

Water for washing and for drinking is available at the end of the blueberry shack.

The bears are not real, never were, so don’t be afraid.

For the ‘want to know folks, we have an informational sheet for the asking:
e.g. Did you know that we brought in over 800,000 honey bees and bumble bees for spring pollination?
Or, that this spring, four of us spend nine weeks on our knees pruning (and some of the time praying)?

Know your farmer; know how we farm; and know what you eat.

Blessings from David and Darlene Ingalls
