U-Pick Recommendations

Tip #1:  Farmer Meghan or Farmer Autumn and staff will give you  a quick picking lesson.  We will drive you to preselected picking areas for the best and ripest berries.  

 

Tip #2:  Parents - Bring a camera!

 

Tip #3:  Early morning or late afternoon is ideal for picking.  Although most of  June offers pleasant temperatures, the hotter it gets, the more important it is to keep children out of the mid-day heat.  If it is hot, come early or late afternoon and everybody will have more fun!

 

Tip #4:  We have 36 acres of picking area.  The plants near the drop off spots   get picked the most.  So, go for a walk down the row and you will usually find plenty of blueberries farther away !  We have a wagon ride set up for delivering folks to and from the far away areas.  The shuttle will run frequently to assist our guests as well.

 

Tip #5:  Parents - Strollers are great for kids.  We recommend a "jogging" stroller with larger wheels.  A small "umbrella" stroller will not work.  It gets stuck in the ground cover and won’t be functional.

 

Tip #6:  When it’s hot – please wear a hat and put on sunscreen.  Especially the kids!

 

Tip #7:  Look under branches!  Most adults pick the berries at mid stomach level (where they are the easiest).  If you carefully lift branches, you will often discover clusters of berries and it makes picking much easier.  Hint- look for heavy foliage – it’s a good place to lift branches.

 

Tip #8:  We have approximately 20-30 parking spots on the premises.

 

Tip #9:  Check in the market first to get your bucket and arrange your picking location and a wagon ride !

 

Tip #10  New Pavilion available mid farm for shade it includes picnic tables and porta potty with  sinks- It was  finally completed June 5th 2018.  We will be adding concrete flooring in the future.

 

Tip #11 Bring or purchase bug spray this season has had extreme and unusual rainfall which has caused many mosquitos- We have treated the area and are working with Mosquito Control. 

 

Tip #12 Consider bringing boots- monitor the weather  before your trip or call for field conditions  302-236-4284

 

Tip #13 Air conditioned market with young toddler and  baby friendly necessities and toys is available to help the younger folks wait while the other older members of the group do marathon picking if needed.

 

Tip#14 Snacks, water, and other items available for purchase in market.
