You’ll Leave With Blue Fingers, Sweet Memories & a Whole Bunch of Berries
A handful of fresh, sweet blueberries is always a treat on a hot summer day. And somehow, they’re even more delicious when they’re hand-picked from one of NEPA’s own farms.
Starting in mid-July, local u-pick blueberry farms will open their fields and welcome visitors to come fill up their baskets. Head out into the patch for a little work, a lot of fun and a sweet reward at the end of the day. We’re already dreaming about fluffy blueberry pancakes, warm blueberry muffins and fresh-baked blueberry cobbler.
Check out these blueberry farms while they’re ripe for the picking. The season typically lasts through Labor Day. However, picking conditions can change day by day. Call the farms directly or check social media to confirm hours and availability.
