What should I bring to pick blueberries?


Just yourself! We provide lined buckets for you to pick blueberries with. Once you have finished picking, you'll simply take your berries home in the bag that lined your bucket. Other than that, we recommend bringing bottled water, sun protection, sunscreen and bugspray (to be applied before entering the blueberry field).




What time does U-Pick end?


Out of respect for our employees, all U-pickers must exit the field by closing time. Our hours are: Monday - Saturday: 8 am - 6 pm Tuesdays: 8 am - 8 pm (Closed Sundays)




What is the shelf life of my blueberries?


Once picked, fresh blueberries can last for up to a week in your refrigerator. Frozen blueberries can last in the freezer for up to one year.




How do you charge for U-Pick?


Once you've finished picking, we will weigh your blueberries for you. After that, you will pay based on the total number of pounds of blueberries you picked. The price per pound varies per year.




How long does blueberry season last?


Depending on the crop, blueberry season can last anywhere from four to six weeks.




Can I freeze my blueberries?


Yes! Blueberries freeze extremely well!




What is the best way to freeze my blueberries?


1. Spread your unwashed blueberries out on a cookie sheet. 2. "Flash freeze" the blueberries by leaving them in the freezer until solid 3. Once solid, pour the blueberries into Ziplock freezer bags to be stored for up to one year. Pro Tip: We do not recommend washing your blueberries before freezing. Instead, rinse and pat your berries dry after removing them from the freezer.




Do you sell any other types of berries?


At this time we only sell blueberries. Previously, we have grown strawberries, black berries and red raspberries.




Do you spray your blueberries?


It depends on the year. We only spray the blueberries if there is an immediate threat to the crop. To find out if the berries have been sprayed, call or ask an employee in the store.




Do you sell blueberry bushes?


Unfortunately, we do not sell blueberry bushes.




How do you harvest your blueberries?


By hand! We do not use any type of machine to pick our blueberries. Each and every berry is picked by a hired blueberry picker.

1 quart = 1.5 pounds 1 pint = .75 pounds 1 cup = .375 pounds 5 lbs of blueberries = 3 1/3 quarts




How many blueberries do I need to make a pie?


It depends on the recipe, but most call for about 4 cups (1.5 pounds) of blueberries.




How can I order ready-picked berries?
