OMP Methodist Church Takes the ‘Cool Bus’ to Buchan’s Blueberry Hill

Help Support Old Mission Gazette, a reader-supported newspaper covering the Old Mission Peninsula

Every Wednesday, the good folks at Old Mission Peninsula United Methodist Church (my home church) take the “Cool Bus” over to Buchan’s Blueberry Hill for some yummy ice cream.

I finally had a chance to participate in this fun activity, and not only were the church folks there, but the iconic ice cream/farm stand was packed with people! In addition to home-made ice cream, they also offer fruit in season, including blueberries, apples and peaches, as well as jams, jellies and other farm goods.

If you’d like to ride along on the “Cool Bus,” meet at the church, 16426 Center Road, at 6:45 p.m. on Wednesday evenings. Or meet everyone at Buchan’s at 7 p.m.

Buchan’s Blueberry Hill is located at 1472 Nelson Road, off Peninsula Drive on the Old Mission Peninsula. Their phone number is (231) 223-4846. They’re open 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and on Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Lori and Ben Buchan run the farm, and Lori said blueberries are available for picking through October. For more info, check out their website here.
