K & K Blueberries has closed for the 2021 season. 💜💜💜 I want to thank all the people who came out during this short, hot blueberry season. You supported my small business, got outside with your family and friends, and went home with some delicious blueberries. It was a great season made better for seeing all of you! 💜💜💜. Remember to start looking around Father's Day on our Facebook page - it's when I get a good idea of when I will be able to open. See you next year! Kathy

What do I bring with me?

  • Cash is preferred but checks are accepted with ID. No credit/debit accepted.
  • Another item that can make your time more comfortable is a small stool or bucket to sit on.

Which blueberries should I pick?

Green berries will not ripen once picked. Please pick only the ripe berries and leave the green ones on the bushes to ripen later. Ripe blueberries are plump, deeply colored, and “give” easy.

When are you open?

We close mid-day from 12pm to 5pm because when the temperature rises the berries become too soft for picking. We may also close on days with high temperature. The quickest way to get updates on picking is to call the phone number for information before you drive out here.

How long do blueberries last?

Blueberries are perishable, avoid leaving them in a hot car and keep them out of direct sunlight. For the longest lasting fresh blueberries, don't rinse the berries until right before serving. Blueberries will keep fresh in a refrigerator for 10 to 14 days and frozen blueberries will last one year in a freezer (at 0 degrees or colder).

What is the best way to freeze blueberries?

Don't wash your blueberries before freezing; the secret to successful freezing is to have berries completely dry before freezing. For loose packed berries, spread on a cookie sheet in a single layer and place in the freezer until hard, about 1-2 hours. Transfer to freezer bags and store up to a year at 0 degrees or colder. Also consider vacuum sealing the frozen blueberries to help preserve the blueberries.
