Shortly after the farm opened, families and people of all ages filled the fields of Bleuetière DuRoy to pick their two litres of free blueberries.

Families and friends lined up at the Bleuetière DuRoy with their containers on July 25. This was the first of three Saturdays where locals were invited to pick fresh blueberries free of charge. Owner Bruno Roy could not have predicted a better outcome: bright sun, a light breeze and happy pickers of all ages.
