Berry Picking Tips:

  • Call ahead or check the farm's Facebook Page (linked in the title of each farm) to verify picking times, as they vary from farm to farm. This is a MUST!
  • Remember comfortable shoes (you will be walking in fields) and wear sunscreen.
  • Bring bottled water and pack a picnic if the farm allows.
  • And, don’t forget your camera… children with blueberry smiles make a great photo op!
