Need blueberries? Let Bernie Ellis be your huckleberry. His farm in nearby Santa Fe (pronounced "fee") is loaded with organic berries, and if you're looking for an outing with the kids in the weeks before school starts back up, this seems a golden chance to fill a few buckets in bright sunshine.

More from Bernie:

My organic blueberry farm (picked as the model operation by the UT School of Agriculture in 2012) is overflowing with ripe, sweet and bountiful berries NOW. My farm is in northwest Maury County, about 12 miles south of Leiper's Fork. I allow folks to pick by appointment only, and I am happy to schedule folks from 5 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily.

My berries are $15/gallon U-pick and $25/gallon if I pick and deliver them to Nashville and surrounding areas. My berries are now being featured in Martha Stamps' catering operation and are attracting loads of pickers who appreciate fresh organic fruit. I need loads more pickers NOW. For more information or to schedule a visit, call me at 931/682-2864.
