The farm is located away from busy areas, making for a nice, scenic drive. Once you get closer to the farm, there are lots of signs alerting you that you're on the right path, and getting close!
Once you arrive and park, you're greeted by the charming office area and friendly staff, ready to explain how the process works.
A staff member will hand you a bucket, walk you out into the fields, and ask if you've picked blueberries before. Being my first time, I said no, and I was given the advice, "Pick the blue ones!" I laughed out loud, but the note in that advice was don't pick the red or white ones- they don't taste very good.
One nice thing they seem to do is spread all of the visitors out, so you have rows and rows of blueberry bushes all to yourself. You're free to walk about and pick from wherever you like, but they crops are so abundant, you can easily stay in one place if you like.
Moorhead's allows you to taste test on the spot, and my goodness, they are delicious. They taste so incredibly different than from the grocery store! It's something you have to taste for yourself.
When you're all done, you take your bucket of blueberries to the front to get weighed. At $2.50 a pound, you can pick as many as you like! They also sell blueberry recipes, or you can download them off their website for free.
Near the front, they have a nice shaded rest area with lots of benches and shade.
Outside the farm, you'll see picnic tables under beautiful shade trees, and a snow cone shack ready to serve something cool.
