Knapp Farm is primarily a fruit farm today. The farm's main crop is blueberries. In 1985, Ellen and Jason Knapp, the current operators of the farm, enlisted the aid of Cornell University to begin a small commercial blueberry planting. Marvin Pritts of Cornell's Horticultural Sciences Department advised the Knapps on site selection, varietal selection, and sound cultural practices. Today, this planting is at full production and benefits from integrated pest management techniques and trickle-drip irrigation. Varieties in this planting include Blue Crop, Blue Ray, Northland, and Patriot.
Additional fruits grown on the farm include cherries, strawberries, red raspberries, blackberries, elderberries, rhubarb, and apples. With the exception of the blueberries, all fruits grown on the farm are used exclusively in the production of the Knapp Farm line of specialty foods. We allow U-Pick of the blueberries from July 15 - August 15.
