Located about 2.5 hours from Chicago, the Blueberry Patch is worth a day trip. We headed out in the late a.m., just after the baby's nap, stopping first for a relaxing, gourmet lunch at SOE Cafe (on Sawyer Rd., just down the street from the farm) - try the homemade gardenburger! For dessert: as many blueberries as we could fit in our bellies. Even the baby was reaching out into the bushes from her backpack carrier for more! We managed to pick three pounds of blueberries! (and ate many of them on the car ride home!)
