Blueberry Picking

Mallory Farms is a great U-pick blueberry place on Bemiss Road north of Cat Creek. They are selling unsprayed (read: natural) blueberries for $6/gallon. They are wonderful! The folks are very nice, and they have chickens and a turkey there, too. On a side note, they are good Christian folks!
