Hello! With the weather warming, the berries are nearing their peak. We will open for U-pick on Thursday, the 28th from 1-7:00; Saturday the 30th from 9-4:00; and Sunday the 31st from 11-4:00. After that, we'll continue checking the field and will let you know when we have plenty of ripe, luscious blueberries to open again. The season should last another month or so, but we are near the height of the season and the picking is easy now.

For our certified organic blueberries, we charge $3.00 per pound, and we take cash or checks. We provide picking containers, which you can use to take your berries home. Please leave your dog at home, as they are not allowed in the field and there is no shade for them in the car.

Well-supervised children are always welcome. We enjoy their excitement at picking the berries, and we provide dirt toys if they need something else to do.

Occasionally an establishment or farm will advertise "organic" food, when in fact they do not meet that standard. If you want to verify whether a farm or store is certified organic, ask to see their certificate. Ours is clearly posted.

We'll look forward to seeing you in the berry field. 'Bye!

Welcome to Dungeness Meadow Farm

We are a Certified Organic family farm near Sequim, Washington with a commitment to your well-being. We grow four varieties of blueberries on 2.5 acres, and it is our pleasure to offer both a U-pick experience and pre-picked berries to our customers. We encourage you to consider our farm as your source for top quality, great tasting, and healthful blueberries.

We use only USDA/WSDA authorized practices, amendments and listed products to enhance our farm. I continually research new methods to find a balance in our practices. Our fields are covered with netting, which avoids the issues brought on by birds and other wildlife. (Who could blame them though!) We receive water directly from the Dungeness River. We have great soil and wonderful conditions for optimum healthy fruit. Our kids are the taste testers, quality control techs, and helpers during the harvest.

I have been interested in organic growing methods since I was a young boy growing up in Edmonds. My neighbors were immigrants who came to America with gardening experience. They did not understand the need to spray chemicals or other additives onto their families’ food. We maintain that same standard for growing wholesome, healthful, luscious food for your table and ours.

Warning: Do not be misled by farms that advertise certified organic status, unless they can provide the certification to back up their claims. Our certificate (updated each year) is posted at our checkout counter, or you can contact the USDA or the WSDA for verification.

We hope you will join the many people who return to Dungeness Meadow Farm each year for their annual supplies of blueberries. We are open several days each week, depending on available fruit. Check this website or call our information number (360-582-1128) after 7 AM to see what’s happening that day, or to order pre-picked berries.

We look forward to seeing you in the berry field!
