Pick some Blueberries and Support the Cavendish Historical Society

It's Blueberry Time! Are you looking for a wholesome, family-type summer activity? Then spend part of your Summer Sunday at Bruce's Berries! The blueberry bushes have loads of berries on them and for the next 3 or 4 days you will be able to pick lots of red raspberries. The raspberry season is short so don't delay. The variety of red raspberries I grow originated in Ireland and are named Boyne and Killarney, They are full of flavor but do not keep long. Get 'Em and eat 'Em or freeze 'Em now.' Stay tuned for stories about Camden and Lester. They both just got back from a trip out west where they claim they were hunting for dinosaurs.
The picking procedure is the same as last year...scale on the porch...honor system...blah, blah, blah. We will be splitting the sales 50/50 with a different group this year. Half of the proceeds will go to the Cavendish Historical Society to supplement the funds that the good citizens of Cavendish voted to give the Society. The money will go into a fund to repair and paint the former Cavendish Baptist Church that is now the museum. Pick delicious, healthy, never any sprays (except water) blueberries and help refurbish one of the towns beautiful buildings. And remember Bruce's Berries are the freshest and tastiest because YOU PICK THEM YOURSELVES!!!

Bruce's blueberry patch is at 345 Minor Rd. Take route 103 just over the Cavendish line to Smokeshire Rd in Chester. Stay on Smokeshire until you see Minor Rd. Go up the hill and you'll tend end onto Bruce's property and his magical berries, which are contently waiting for you to pick them.
