The Benson Place

Hello Friends of the Benson Place,

The 2018 season is upon us, and after the warm and sunny pollination weather, the fields look good and we are anticipating a larger crop this year.  Hopefully, we'll get a little rain before the crop is ripe to help the berries along. 

We will begin taking orders on July 3rd so please feel free to check the reserve berries page on or soon after July 3rd to schedule an order for pre-picked berries or to make a weekday u-pick appointment.  Weekday appointments fill up quickly!

 

 

   

 

We've revamped our on-line ordering system for this year to more easily accomodate the pickup location options.  If you have time to drop us a note when you are filling out the reservation form, we'd love your feedback on the changes in the ordering process or any other ideas to make it more streamlined.  

The Benson Place will continue to offer berry pickup locations in Greenfield, Amherst, Northampton, and Conway this year.  And after offering a pickup at Natural Roots for two years now, we're happy to be also offering pickups at both Brookfield Farm and Simple Gifts Farm this year.  If you think your CSA may be interested please have them contact us and we may be able to arrange a pickup for the 2019 season. 

We are also now accepting food stamps as a payment option.  If you plan to be paying with food stamps at a pickup location other than the farm, please indicate this when you place your order as we will need to run your EBT card over the phone the day before your pickup.  

 

 

We are continually grateful and thrilled to be farming this amazing crop for our larger community.  We put forth an ongoing effort to refine our farming to produce healthy and more nutrient dense blueberries as well as to benefit the local ecology from the bees to the birds to the bears.  Thank you so much for all of your ogoing support.  We hope you enjoy the berries as much as we do!
