Patt's Blueberry Stand Open for Business

July 9, 2016

Patt’s Blueberry Stand officially opened for business for the 2016 season this past Thursday. The blueberry fields, which are located on Gorwin drive, have become a popular destination for families to come to during the summer and pick their own blueberries.

“The crop is pretty good this year,” said Elisabeth Patt, one of the owners. They, like everyone else in Holliston, have had to deal with the infestation of gypsy moths this summer, but the blueberries, for the most part, have been unharmed.

This is despite the fact that the gypsy moths are particularly bad in the Gorwin drive area. The path to the fields is clouded in swarms of the moths, as are the woods in the area and the blueberry fields themselves.

This is the second straight year that the blueberry fields have produced a decent crop. However, things were not so good in 2014. That year, the crop was decimated by winter moths, and the stand was only able to stay open for two weeks.

Patt’s Blueberries has been in business for over 30 years now, and opened right on schedule this year, the target date being the weekend after the 4th of July.

Patt estimates that the crop will last until about mid-August, so there is plenty of time for everyone to stop by and pick their own blueberries. They are open Thursdays through Saturdays from 8am until 7pm every weekend.
