The blueberry patch is closed for picking 

for 2020. Thank you to everyone who came and picked blueberries this year.


A pint - 2 cups - of blueberries weighs about 12 ounces, so 5 lbs is about 6.5-7 pints


​Picked blueberries are not currently available at the farm. 


8-10 is a good minimum age for picking blueberries. Blueberries ripen unevenly in clusters and you need fine-motor skills to pick the ripe blueberries while 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!
