At Blueberry Hills we would like for you and your family to have a fun and memorable experience but even more, have enough fruit for everyone that comes to visit us. We love kids and were once them at one time. When you arrive at the farm, take some time at the beginning to explain to your kids on how to identify and pick ripe fruit. A fully ripe blueberry will be uniform in color and should easily come loose from the plant. If it takes any appreciable pressure to pick them, the berries aren’t fully ripe. A reddish ring where the fruit is attached to the stem also indicates that the berry is not ripe.
Teach our future to be good stewards of the land and that plants are living things to be cared for and respected, not abused, and the farmer feeds and provides for his family from the well-being of these plants! Horseplay is not allowed in the fields. Don’t run or walk between plants that result to breaking branches and knocking down fruit. If you have any questions, feel free to ask one of our friendly farmers.
WHAT TO BRING
Bring sunscreen, snacks for the kids and, plenty of liquids to drink.
Pack a lunch. You and the FAM are welcome to picnic on the grounds.
We do provide buckets for picking but NOT for taking your fruit home. We do tend to run out of buckets during heightened activity, so you are welcomed to bring your own. Wearing a belt around your waist to hang your bucket from is helpful if you’re looking to use both hands.
Dress comfortably and wear sturdy footwear. If it’s hot, remember that wearing a long sleeved, white loose fitting shirt will keep hot sun off your skin and keep you significantly cooler. And don’t forget to bring a hat also to protect you from the summer sun.
