Blueberries begin to ripen in mid July. Really good picking generally begins about the 1st week in August and runs until about Labor Day. All of our blueberry bushes are high bush cultivated berries, which are easy to pick. We provide containers for you. Picking hours are 8-4 Tues-Sun. Closed on Mondays. The blueberry picking gets better here every year. We had the best year ever in 2006. We have planted more bushed to keep up with the demand and expect to be harvesting of those bushes in 2010.
