Subject: U-Pick Blackberry Farms – Next update – Where are the Certified Organic Blueberry Farms?
Thank you for letting me know of the U-Pickwithing a 75 mile radius of Ocala. I learned there are three and a report on these three U-Pick Blackberry farms follows:
I received an email from Sherry Brothers, president of the Florida Blackberry Growers Association and she said her farm in Anthony, Florida (Blues Brothers – blackberries, blueberries, 4290 NE 97th Street Road, Anthony, FL 32617. Phone: 352-629-0039. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org) is now "picked out" and closed for the season. She said she had a great turnout for her blackberry upick crop. She confirmed what many of you told me that there are two other U-Pick Blackberry farms within a one hour drive of Ocala.
