You’ll Leave With Blue Fingers, Sweet Memories and a Whole Bunch of Berries
Blueberry season starts in mid-July, and there’s no better place to find them than at NEPA’s u-pick farms. Head out into the patch for a little work, a lot of fun and a sweet reward at the end of the day.
Local berries are so delicious, so fresh and so hard to resist just plucking them off the bush and eating them. We’re already dreaming about stacks of blueberry pancakes and warm blueberry muffins.
Blueberry season typically lasts through Labor Day. However, picking conditions can change day by day. Call ahead to confirm availability and operating hours.
And don’t forget, for all of our friends, families and neighbors, continue observing all recommended health and safety precautions to prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).
