Where are the best U-pick blueberries?
Check out these fresh pickings -
Check with the farms before heading out. Some close early due to heat, over picking or other reasons, and some of your favorites may not be open for U-pick this year. Most have buckets to pick in, but you need your own containers to take the berries home. Some only accept cash. Don't forget to wear sunblock and bring water.
