Blueberry Picking Tips
Be sure to check with the farm for current conditions before making the trip. Early or late in the season, farms often close early or for a few days to wait for berries to ripen.
What to Bring:
- Dress for the weather. We have picked when it was hot in July and cool in September.
- Bug spray
- Water – make sure to stay hydrated
- Bring a container or use one of theirs. Some places charge for picking containers.
- Cash or check. Some farms don’t accept credit cards.
Blueberries are a great fruit to pick with young children. Blueberry bushes are low to the ground and don’t have thorns like raspberry bushes.
Make sure to have a plan for what to do with your freshly picked blueberries. I always like to make blueberry waffles or pancakes the day I pick them.
