U-Pick Blueberry Farms in Northeast Florida
Quick, grab your bucket or pail and run to the bushes! The blueberry bushes, that is. The season is here, and you better pick ‘em while you can. These little jewels always seem to disappear too quickly, with a season that runs just a couple of months, from mid-April through July, depending on the weather. The good news is there are several area farms that offer u-pick options if the farmers’ market can’t keep up with your blueberry demands. And while fresh from the bush blueberries are delicious, this fruit also freezes well, so you can stock up and stash a couple of bags to get you through the winter, until the next season rolls around.
Here’s a list of some of the local farms for u-pick outings. It is always a good idea to call or check online before heading out to the farm in case the schedule listed below has changed due to weather or supply of blueberries.
