Posted on | 3 Comments

Ready for blueberry and blackberry season? We love picking fresh berries and filling up the freezer for this year’s blueberry muffins, oatmeal, blackberry cobbler, pies and more. If you’re looking for places to pick blueberries and blackberries near Greenville, you’ve come to the right spot. Here’s a list of local blueberry and blackberry farms in Greenville where you can pick your own.

Definitely check these farms’ websites, Facebook pages or give them a call. Farms will close early if they’ve had heavy picking, bad weather, etc. Additionally, many of these farms are small, family-run farms and they’ll let you know where to find them to pay for your berries. Sometimes they’ll have hours where they will be at a farm shed or store and other hours where you’ll need to stop at a house on the property. So it’s good to know where you’ll find the owners before you get picking.

Thank you so much for this information. I am going to tell my daughter so she and my granddaughter can.
They have picked strawberries but not blueberries. It’s fun to teach about healthy foods and where they come from.

And it sounds like you have an amazing family.

My secret for picking blackberries….two milk jugs with tops cut off for a larger opening leaving the handle intact. Strap the two jugs on using a belt…I prefer one on each side of my body. Have one hand with a heavy canvas glove to hold and gather the “vines/canebrakes” and use ungloved hand to gather berries and drop in containers. Heavy jeans, long sleeves, socks and shoes with adequate bug/chigger protection and remove clothing and wash as quickly as possible. Hopefully where you pick will be bug free!!! ENJOY!

FYI that Bar W is no longer in the blueberry business as of 2016. We had a member in our group call them earlier this week and learned of the closure. 😉 You may want to update the list so folks don’t keep calling them!
