Story from my personal blog on JT and the farm;


Come pick your own fresh anti-oxidant loaded juicy blueberries on the Lyon Blueberry farm this summer. Take a road trip to the beautiful largely untouched part of Shelby County, between Wilsonville and Columbiana, and be prepared to pick! (In other words, dress accordingly and keep an eye on your kids)
