U-Pick blueberries

  • The U-Pick is located just south of our Farm Store on Blue Star Highway. Look for the Open Flags.

  • One of our attendants will greet you and provide you with a plastic-bag-lined bucket. You will be directed to rows that have the best-ripened berries for the day.

  • Once you have picked as much or as little as you like, your berries will be weighed; minus the bucket of course! We accept cash or card.

  • Take your berries home in the provided bag or upgrade to a box for a small charge.

  • After picking, please visit our Farm Store to cool down with a Blueberry Lemonade or grab a square of fudge. Taste samples of our specialty foods and find a one-of-a-kind gift. Enjoy a treat on our covered patio or at our picnic tables.

Tips

  • Clean portable restrooms, handwashing stations, and a shaded picnic table are available at the U- Pick. Please visit our Farm Store for air-conditioned bathrooms and a larger picnic area.

  • There is very little shade in the fields, and sometimes mosquitoes. Sunscreen, water, and bug spray are available for purchase!

  • Wear shoes that you don’t mind getting wet or dirty as the fields can be muddy.

  • Please don’t bring any pets to the U-Pick. Food safety regulations prohibit pets from being in the fields. We strive to provide our customers with the safest food possible and we appreciate your help with this by respecting this rule.

  • To have blueberries available throughout the season, we plant varieties that mature at different times. Please join our email list or follow us on Instagram or Facebook to see what we currently have available.

Blueberry Varieties

We grow many great varieties,
but here are a few of our favorites!

  • EARLY BLUE - Just as the name suggests, this sweet, medium-sized variety is typically ready to pick at the beginning of July.

  • COLLINS - Collins is a firm, sweet berry. It is often large in size and typically ready to pick in mid to late July.

  • SPARTANS - A crowd favorite for its sweet flavor and large size, this variety is only available for a short time, usually ready to pick around mid-July.

  • BLUE CROP - This variety provides a “classic” sweet blueberry flavor and medium size; typically ready to pick from mid-July to mid-August.

  • BERKELEY - This powdery-blue berry is often large, and typically ready to pick between mid-July and early August.

  • JERSEY - One of the oldest varieties, Jerseys are medium-sized, sweet, and very popular for baking. It is typically ready to pick up from late July through mid-August.
