Pick Your Own Blueberries Hours

Late-June - Mid-July

Open Weekends (Saturday and Sunday Only)
Hours vary based on picking conditions. We are generally open both days of the weekend during the season from 7:30am to 11:30am (fields close at noon). To the extent all ripe berries have been picked or if there is inclement weather the farm may close early (check us out on Facebook for real-time updates) or the farm may be closed all day Sunday (in which case we update Facebook and send an e-mail on Saturday night to all members of our mailing list).

Please call, sign-up for mailing list or visit us on Facebook or Twitter to confirm our hours each week.

Starting and ending times may vary based on supply and weather conditions. Call for confirmation, if there is a question.

By reservation, depending on the picking conditions, we can offer additional picking opportunities, including twilight picking, for individuals and groups during the week.

Helpful Tips

  • Come early in the day because the temperature is cooler.
  • Come early in the weekend. The blueberries will be most abundant on Saturday morning after they have had a week to ripen. A large turn-out could pick out the fields quickly, so it is best to call before visiting the farm.
  • Be aware of the weather conditions and wear appropriate clothing. Wear loose, comfortable clothes. A hat is great sun protection. Don't forget sunscreen and/or bug-spray.
  • It is very tempting to begin picking at the entrance to the field. Remember that just about everyone starts picking there. Go to the outer edges of the field.
  • Don't be afraid to thoroughly examine the blueberry plant in search of berries. Just about everyone starts with the berries that can easily be seen at eye level. Some of the largest berries are hidden below and behind leafy vegetation.
  • Only pick berries that are completely blue. Blueberries do not continue to ripen after they are picked.
  • Be vigilant for insect nests, animals and poison ivy.
