Our last day for pick-your-own blueberries 

will be Tuesday July 16,

from 8:00 am-12:00 noon.

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, gently rolling them off their stems.

If you have to tug, it's not ripe yet!
