Is there a berry picking farm around the Iowa City area? I know about Wilson's for apples-just looking for some bluberries (any type of berries really).
Thanks!

The blueberries are long gone. We tried to go out there (Lone Tree place mentioned above) and he said they had a bumper crop but it was pretty much gone by the middle of July.
