Summertime is the perfect time of year to get outdoors and enjoy the sunshine with the family. What better way than to go berry picking? Not far from Camdenton sits a quaint blueberry patch — Auglaize Berry Patch — that holds more than 20 rows of berries. The patch is home to a variety of blueberries perfect for any recipe.
This leisure activity is fun for anyone at any age. Young children and adults alike enjoy passing the time while walking up and down the rows looking for those perfectly ripe berries.
The patch has been opened for almost a week and plans to stay open until July 4 or so depending on the berries.
