Our "U-Pick" Farm
On our website you will find information about our farm, information about our cookbook, planting instructions, directions, and other useful information.
Our farm is a U-pick farm and welcomes everyone! During the season we are open every day except Wednesday, and our hours are 7:00 AM to 8:00 PM. All of our berries are sold by the gallon and we supply one gallon containers to use in the fields. However, you should bring a large container or box to carry your berries home.
You will also find information about our unique blueberry recipe book (with over 150 recipes!), various brochures, and other items of interest.
For your convenience, we have a restroom and hand washing station, as well as drinking water, picnic tables, and a swing and lawn chairs for resting. We welcome groups and encourage you to bring your children. Our current price per gallon can be found on our Facebook page.
We plan to open during the blueberry season but things will have to be a little different this year due to COVID-19. Please practice social distancing while visiting our farm. We will be disinfecting our buckets, playground, and picnic tables daily. We still offer a “touch-free” payment system where you can pay for your blueberries by scanning our QR code, which is displayed in several locations around our hut. We also accept cash or checks made out to “The Blueberry Farm” which are to be placed in the payment box.

Blueberries have been long prized as great tasting and value-added fruit. They are low in calories, virtually fat free, a good source of fiber, and very high in antioxidants. Research has put blueberries at the top of a list of 40 fruits, juices and vegetables in antioxidant activity. Antioxidants neutralize the free radicals that contribute to heart disease and aging. Blueberries also contain over 40 cancer-preventive compounds, as well as vitamins C, E and beta carotene.
Rabbiteye blueberries are the main fruit at our farm. We have approximately 1,000 plants of various varieties. Our blueberry season usually starts in July and continues through August. In addition to the berries, we usually offer a limited number of blueberry plants for sale from January through March.
Our farm also offers muscadines for pick-your-own customers during the growing season. The season is from September to October.
