Strawberries? Raspberries? Blueberries? Our family debate over which is the best berry may never be resolved, but this time of year, the blueberry is everyone's favorite pick. This tart little superfood just may be the easiest fruit to pick, prepare, and serve: There's no peeling, pitting, coring, or cutting. Plus, they attract fewer natural pests other than birds, so much of the fruit is grown pesticide-free.
The pick-your-own blueberry season begins in July and continues through late August or early September. From simple you-pick blueberries to full-service farms with play areas and petting zoos, we’ve rounded up some of the best farms in the Boston area to visit. Read on to the end of the post to find a recipe for our favorite blueberry treat: the classic blueberry buckle.
