Q: When are you open?
A: We are a working farm and our hours can change depending on the weather conditions. We ask that you check our website or all social media platforms for updates for weather conditions and berry production (seasonal) before you make your trip.
Q: Are your berries organic? GMO (Genetically Modified)?
A: No, we are not a certified organic Farm. However, we only use a very light pesticide when needed and we do it at a time to not disturb the bees that are pollinating the berries. We do not use pesticides in our blueberry and blackberry fields unless necessary. Our berries are not GMO.
Q: When can we pick strawberries, blueberries, blackberries?
A: Our farm will no longer be growing strawberries, blueberry picking typically starts mid April, blackberry picking is in May.

A: The admission cost to Farm Funland is $24.00 per person tax included. Children UNDER 2 are free. Senior Citizens (65 and older with ID) are $18. There is no admission fee to pick berries. You only pay for what you pick.
Q: Do you have baskets for berry picking?
A: Yes, We ask that you make plans to use Blessington Farms baskets. The weight of the basket is calibrated into the scales. The cost of the basket is $1.50 and can be re-used each time you come to the Farm.
Q: Should we plan on picking berries or playing first?
A: It is our recommendation that you always pick first. During certain seasons when we are busier than others we could be picked out early. If you plan on picking, it is best that you bring a cooler with ice (to store the berries). Come early and pick, then make it a great rest of the day and play in Farm Funland.
Q: What kind of fish do you stock in the Blessington Farms Lake? Cost to fish?
