2024 U-Pick

We will be able to open our u-pick for the last weekend in July through weekends in August but sign up for our newsletter and follow us on Instagram for the most up to date information. We can't wait to see you at the farm this summer! If you aren't able to make it this summer and are looking for some organic blueberry picking fun into September/early October, check out Silva Family Farm's U-Pick in Oak Harbor

What do I bring?

We supply buckets for picking and freezer bags so that you can take your berries home.

We recommend sensible close-toed shoes for picking and for a sanitary boot dip on your way into the field.

How do I pick blueberries?

Our you-pick berries are the big plump variety called Bluecrop. When you lightly comb the branches with your fingers, the ripe berries fall into your hands while the unripe berries stick to the bush.

Will blueberries ripen after being picked?

No, unlike peaches or bananas, blueberries do not ripen after being picked. If they are picked red or green, they will not turn blue or become sweeter.

How do I store blueberries?

Blueberries store best in the refrigerator unwashed. When berries come fresh from the farm they can hold up for over two weeks. Wash them with cold water just before serving.

How do I freeze blueberries?

Do not wash them before freezing. Put them in a plastic bag, seal it, and then place the bag in the freezer. That’s it! (Or simply leave them in the bag you pulled out of your bucket with a twist tie.) No trays are needed. Wash them before eating. If you thaw them, they will retain their shape but become a little bit soft. They are excellent for baking, smoothies, and pancakes. We love eating them frozen out of the bag.

Can I bring my dog?

USDA health regulations do not allow us to permit animals in the field. There are wonderful places to walk nearby and we’re happy to show you where to go.

Dogs are welcome in the areas around our farm store.
