Pick your own:
Canaan Blueberry Farm still open, but call ahead!

(Monday, July 28, 2014) The season will end sooner this year because of a shortage of fruit, and they are literally assessing the picking on a day-to-day basis. So before you leave home, call ahead to listen to an up-to-date message.

Also, weather can affect the operation. If it rains, chances are the fields will be closed.

(Monday, July 21, 2014) A local, "best-kept-secret" is opening on Thursday for another season. The Canaan Blueberry Farm has some of the best berries and cleanest fields in the land. But you had better get your picking in early because the season may be much shorter than usual, thanks to a cold winter, which destroyed close to 50 per cent of the plants.

For complete information and directions, visit their website or call 613-833-2069 for daily updates.
