Blueberry Picking Tips
Be sure to check with the farm for current conditions before making the trip.
What to Bring:
- Dress for the weather. The week we picked was chilly, so we wore jeans. This weekend is scheduled to be hot, so dress to stay cool.
- Bug spray
- Water – make sure to stay hydrated
- Bring a container or use one of theirs. Spicer charges $1 for a pail to use while picking. Wasem has no information on picking containers. I know we usually buy bags for apple picking.
- Cash. Dexter Blueberry Farm is cash only
