Blueberries and Bluegrass at a Owls Head Farm
August 08, 2012
Ever since I moved back to Vermont nearly six years ago, Owl’s Head Blueberry Farm has been on my list of places to visit. Located in Richmond, the farm offers blueberry picking seven days a week in July and August.
One of the things that makes Owls Head Farm so special is the live music guests can enjoy while blueberry picking on Tuesday and Thursday evenings.
After work on Tuesday, Dave and I picked four quarts of blueberries listening to Doug Perkins play bluegrass music on a small stage just beyond the rows of bushes. Near the stage, people relaxed on picnic blankets enjoying wine and cheese while soaking up views of the hillsides of eastern Chittenden County. It was, without a doubt, a perfect summer evening.
Owl’s Head Farm just gave me one more reason to love Vermont. And blueberries.
