This Connecticut Mom’s Guide to Pick-Your-Own Blueberries

Last month, our fingers were stained red from picking strawberries… and now it’s time to turn them blue.

Blueberry season is here! 

I love picking blueberries, more than strawberries actually! Even though the berries are smaller, I like being able to stand up and see things at eye level. It’s much better on the knees and back. What can I say, I’m getting old! 

There are so many options for pick-your-own blueberries in Connecticut (and a few in Western Massachusetts); I was actually pretty overwhelmed when I created this list!  You’ll find some of these are the same farms from our pick-your-own strawberry guide, but there are also a lot of new names on here! 

Many farms offering pick-your-own blueberries in Connecticut have already started picking; some are not picking until next week. I’ll try to update the opening dates as I hear about them. It’s important to always call the farm for current picking conditions (some even put updates on their Facebook page.)   Always, it’s important to carry cash on hand when going to picking since many farms are cash only (some take check, a few take credit); best to be prepared! 

Happy picking everyone!
