(Our snapshot from berry picking includes five pints of raspberries, a pint of blueberries, and two pints of gooseberries.)
If your weekend schedule includes the Rock River Artists Open Studio Tour in South Newfane, VT, plan for a morning detour in Troy, NH. Three miles out of the center of Troy is one of the prettiest spots to berry pick. Monadnock Berries, a U-pick farm offers a wide selection of fruit for picking, goats, donkeys, a picnic area, gift store and spectacular scenery. Written up last year in Yankee Magazine, it made a spot on the Favorites page to check it out during this year's berry season.
