Visit us during the spring for our family-favorite blueberry-pick! Pick your own blueberries, fresh from our farm to your home. We’ve been growing blueberries for commercial harvest for since 2010, and have enjoyed sharing our bountiful crop and fresh farm air with our community since 2014. In addition to blueberry picking, we host events for all ages throughout the spring. Be sure to come hungry – we have hot, fresh donuts and a wide range of sweet treats, homemade blueberry lemonade and lunch options at our Southern Hill Farms Café and Eatery. Take a peek at our list of events to see what’s available daily at the farm.

Our Blueberry U-Pick

We grow five different varieties of juicy blueberries on forty acres of the farm, all with distinct tastes and textures. Ranging from large and tart to sweet and juicy, there is a favorite blueberry for everyone. Please keep in mind that not all varieties are available all season long. We’ll provide you with buckets for picking and clamshells to take your bounty home in. Since blueberry picking conditions can vary based on weather and crop availability, please always check the homepage of our website on the day of your planned visit to ensure the farm is open for picking.

Our blueberry u-pick price is $5/lb. and you are responsible for paying for everything that you pick. Please only pick the dark blue blueberries, all other shades (including purple, red, purple, green or a combo of them all) need more time to fully ripen on the bush before they are harvested. Each bucket will hold approximately 6 pounds, and checkout is located in front of Field 5.
