Hello!

Dave and the crew have been working very hard, weeding, pruning, weeding, making compost, weeding, and applying amendments. (Oh, and weeding.) The berries look excellent; we had many blooms, and now see a very nice set. Many of the previously-damaged plants are showing lovely new growth.

At this point we have green berries, but we'll let you know as they ripen. We generally open anywhere from early to late July; it all depends on the weather. Tell your palates and freezers that it won't be much longer.

We'll see you in the berry field!

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 an enjoyable U-pick experience 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 (Blueberry Dave) 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 8 AM to see what’s happening that day.

We look forward to seeing you in the berry field!
