Tanglewood Berry Farm opened it’s Covington Road (7250 Covington Rd) location July 1st of this year.  The farm has existed on Hadley Road as more of a research farm, but the U-Pick side is new.  Right now they just offer blackberries, but there are 59 rows of them each 300 feet long!  They use all of those berries for the U-Pick option but also distribute berries to local stores.  Next year they plan to plant strawberries and move their existing blueberry plants from the Hadley Road farm over to the U-Pick location. Katie Jackemeyer-Street, who works at Tanglewood Berry Farm, says picking berries offers a nice escape from the busyness of life in a place that is safe to let kids run around and be kids.
