Blueberry Harvesting Tips

Before you head out to the farm, we like to remind our visitors that harvesting blueberries can be a physically demanding activity. Please come suitably attired, with appropriate footgear (sneakers, boots, closed toe, no heels shoes). The Berry Ferry will deliver you to the field, but be prepared to walk to where the best picking is in the field. Bring a hat and sunscreen for the sunny days. Many visitors also bring a bottle of drinking water to sip on while they pick. The farm does provide water, but a personal container is recommended.

Children are welcome in the blueberry fields under parental supervision. We would hope they act responsibly and follow the picking guidelines.

When harvesting blueberries, pick a berry that is blue all the way around - they will not ripen more once they are picked. Using your thumb, simply roll the berry off the stem and right into your palm. Minimal handling is best, since handling may destroy the berries’ attractive white surface cover or “bloom” and increase bruising or spoilage.

Be Good to the Land and the Land will be Good to You.
