Calling all berry lovers! Joe and Jill Sackett will be leading a field trip to Monadnock Berries in Troy, NH on Sunday, August 11. Nestled in the shadow of Mount Monadnock, this bucolic berry farm features acres and acres of fat, juicy blueberries. You can pick your own or buy ready-picked berries in their gift shop.
We’ll meet in front of the church at 10:00 AM and carpool or caravan out to Troy, just under a 30 minute drive. Bring a hat, sunscreen, water and snack as desired. Berry-picking is easy; the crop is plentiful and you can practically stand in place to pick! It’s a lovely experience just to wander the fields, enjoy the mountain views, pet the goats, and picnic in the shade. We’ll spend about an hour there (or longer as we wish) and return to the church a little after noon.

Hope you can join us!
