The blueberry fields will open about July 5, 2022. Please consider signing up for email updates. We only send a handful of emails during the growing season so won't clutter up your inbox.
Pick-your-own blueberries are sold by the pint and we provide picking containers.
6-8 is a good minimum age for picking blueberries. Blueberries ripen unevenly in clusters (as in the pictures) and fine-motor skills are needed to pick the ripe blueberries, leaving the rest to finish ripening.
Plan to sit or kneel on the ground part of the time, or bring a kneeler or a light stool to sit
on while picking; only some of our blueberries are tall enough to pick standing up.
Pick only the darkest blue berries that release easily at your touch.
If you have to tug, it's not ripe yet!
