Pick-Your-Own Blueberry Farms Near Orlando

During April and May, several blueberry farms around Orlando welcome guests to pick buckets of berries while enjoying a family day outdoors.  Many of these farms also offer additional fun activities such as sunflower picking, playgrounds, tractor rides, and more.

Be sure to mark your calendars for the annual Mount Dora Blueberry Festival, taking place April 24-25.  Many of these farms will be onsite with freshly picked berries and fresh blueberry products. 

If you come across this page in the months of December-March, blueberries might not be ready yet but there are plenty of local strawberry farms to visit.

While we try to promote safe activities that occur outdoors or with social distancing guidelines in place, please keep your family and others safe by wearing a mask and maintaining appropriate distance. If you arrive at an event that appears too crowded, try using the “nearby” search feature on our event calendar to find something else to do.
