During April and May, several Orlando blueberry farms welcome guests to pick buckets of blueberries while enjoying a family day outdoors. Many of these u-pick blueberry farms in Orlando offer additional fun activities such as sunflower picking, playgrounds, tractor rides, and more. And be sure to mark calendars for the annual Mount Dora Blueberry Festival, taking place April 23-24, where many of the blueberry farms listed below will be onsite with freshly picked berries and other blueberry items. 

Keep in mind that if you come across this page during the winter months of December-March, blueberries might not be ready yet but there are plenty of local strawberry farms to visit!

Blueberry Picking Tips

  • Always call or check each farm’s website or Facebook before visiting, as operating days and hours depend on crop availability and weather.
  • Depending on how far the farm is from home, bring a cooler to preserve berries for the return trip.
  • Instruct children to only pick berries that are ready so that others have time to ripen.
  • Bring sunscreen and/or a large hat for sun protection.
  • Closed-toed shoes are suggested.
