Fox Run Farm

94 Ocean House Rd.

Fox Run Farm began when we planted 150 high bush blueberry plants behind Bothel’s Garage in 2011. In 2012 we added another 150 bushes. Production began in 2013 and we sold them in front of our house. In 2014 we opened with a few Pick Your Own days, and by 2015 we were open for picking for 14 days in July. Our 2015 harvest was 300 quarts and we expect that to double every year for the next 4 years. Visit our Facebook page for up to date information and picking hours.
