Hello! Welcome to Dungeness Meadow Farm. We have four varieties of Certified Organic blueberries. All four varieties are ripe and ready for your freezer or your mouth. We're at the peak of the season, and anticipate about three more weeks of harvesting. We will be open for blueberry U-pick on:

Thursday, the 16th, from 8-5:00;
Friday, the 17th, from 8-5:00;
Saturday, August 18 from 8:30-1:30;
Sunday, the 19th, from 11-5:00.

After that, we'll reassess the field to determine when to open next so that you have the best picking possible.

For our Certified Organic blueberries, we charge $2.75 per pound. We are also offering freshly-frozen berries in four-pound bags for $25/bag. These are on a first-come, first-served basis. We take cash and checks, but not credit/debit cards.

To reach the farm. take Old Olympic Highway near Sequim to McComb Road, just east of the river. Follow McComb through the intersection, onto the gravel lane. We provide picking containers, and bags 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 while they wait in the car.

We have several containers which people have left here; they are on the shelf under the scales in the berry stand and can be picked up at your convenience. Also, a key was found in the parking area, and is in front of the cash register.

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 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!

Blueberry Dave and Teri
