Blueberry Picking Tips

  • Always call or check each farm’s website/social media BEFORE visiting, as opening days and hours depend on crop availability, weather, staffing, etc.
  • 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.
  • Make sure you bring the preferred form of payment depending on each farm's request.
