A three-mile climbing drive brings you to a hillside of berry bushes laden with so much fruit that the blue color looks like a mirage, and in the distance there’s Mount Monadnock. Fenella Levick, her husband, Anthony, and their three children sell jams, jellies, baked goods, smoothies, and crafts. But the most important job is handing you a bucket and directing you to where the tastiest picking is today.

“We’re fussy about our fruit,” Fenella says. “It takes a week from going blue to getting sweet.” Among the high-bush blueberries, red raspberries, and strawberries, the surprise fruit here is currants, which Anthony grew on his father’s farm in Herefordshire, England.

Monadnock Berries, 545 West Hill Road. 603-242-6417.
