Our blueberry crop is finished for 2022; thanks for your interest and your business. We hope to see you in July 2023!
Pick-your-own blueberries are sold by the pint and we provide picking containers.
If the crop allows, we'll offer picked blueberries sometime during the season - check back here, sign up for emails and/or follow us on Facebook for updates.
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. Children of all ages should be monitored and helped when picking.
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!
