PYO Blueberries

Anyone have recommendations for PYO blueberry farms? I usually try to pick 5-10 lbs of blueberries each summer to freeze for the winter and spring. I live in Somerville; a 30 minute drive or less would be preferable, although I'll drive further for a good deal.

      Ward's Berry Farm in Sharon has great blueberry picking going on now. They just to be by the pound, but they started a new thing this year where you have to buy pint (or quart) containers and pay $2 a pint, or $4 a quart., which is more expensive than they were, but still not too bad.

        there's a place in Lexington - really a large patch in the back of a family's home. I believe they open it up on weekends. My mom mentioned it was open this past weekend, so they're open for the seaon now. It's on Adams St. - you have to look for the sign. Sorry, I realize this is kind of sketchy on the details, but 30 minutes is not very far to go if you want to find farms.

        The only other nearby farm I know of with PYO is The Farm in Winchester, where you can pick raspberries (late August/September):
