We supply buckets for picking and freezer bags so that you can take your berries home.
Our you-pick berries are the big plump variety called Blue Crop. When you lightly comb the branches with your fingers, the ripe berries fall into your hands while the unripe berries stick to the bush.
No, unlike peaches or bananas, blueberries do not ripen after being picked. If they are picked red or green, they will not turn blue or become sweeter.
Blueberries store best in the refrigerator unwashed. When berries come fresh from the farm they can hold up for over two weeks. Wash them with cold water just before serving.
Do not wash them before freezing. Put them in a plastic bag, seal it, and then place the bag in the freezer. That’s it! No trays are needed. Wash them before eating. If you thaw them, they will retain their shape but become a little bit soft. They are excellent for baking, smoothies, and pancakes. We love eating them frozen out of the bag and right on top of hot oatmeal.
For the health and safety of everyone, you cannot take your dog into the field. There are wonderful places to walk nearby and we’re happy to show you where to go.
