Blue Sky Farm & Winery

779 Charcoal Road
Stamford, NY 12167



The idea for Blue Sky Farm was first kicked around in 1998, when Russ Betz, owner and proprietor of the present Blue Sky Farm, had an idea for his retirement.  He wanted to start a U-Pick Blueberry farm where people could come and pick fresh, natural blueberries.  He started making plans and in 2001 planted the first blueberries and Blue Sky Farm was born. Roughly 5 acres of the farm is covered by the two main types of blueberries Russ grows, Patriot and Blue Crop.  After much hard work and maintenance, the first crop of blueberries were picked Summer of 2005. A local, favorite source for healthy, good fruit was born and popularity has increased each year.

After a few years, Russ noticed that he had a surplus of blueberries and so decided to put them to good use.  He started experimenting with making wine, and in 2008, added "Winery" to the Blue Sky Farm name. Blue Sky Farm Wine is made with 100% blueberries, high in nutrients and very healthful. The winery has had instant success. Blue Sky Farm has had to ramp up production every season due to the popularity of the wines that are produced.  The winery and U Pick blueberry business continues to grow and every year strives to make the business better. Russ and family have many new ideas in the works. Blue Sky Farm and Winery is a family owned and operated business.
