u-pick blueberries

As much as we would love to have a field of wild berry bushes, with unlimited picking rights, the reality is that we have neither the space nor the knowledge to care for them. Luckily there are several willing growers around the area who literally do the dirty work for us. All that’s left to do is arrive with a big, empty bucket for picking.

Here are some of the best “U Pick ‘em” spots around. It’s always a good idea to call ahead, to verify that the berries are ready to pick, and to make sure eager pickers haven’t already taken the day’s supply. For the best picking, we like to head out in the early morning … less sun and more berries. We see pie in our future . . . or at least some blue-stained fingertips!

U-Pick Berries

NOTE ABOUT PICKING BERRIES: Most of the locations we contacted hinted that it would be the end of May to the first weekend of June before blueberries are ready. Strawberries and raspberries will also be available starting in late May, but you’ll have to wait until late June and July for juicy blackberries.
