Blueberries in Maine

In southern Maine, the highlight is highbush blueberries that bear fruit from April until late October. The blueberries drip from the tall branches and are easily harvested as a casual picker can fill 4 to 5 quarts in a half hour.  Libby and Son has over forty acres of blueberries, and other U-pick crops. Also, nearby is a trailhead and pathways covering Sawyer Mountain with moose, deer, beaver and raccoons throughout the area; those grounds are maintained by the Francis Small Heritage Trust.
