Blueberries are ready for picking. Glenhaven Farm is open for picking and Grisamore Farms also has blueberries as well as Luce Farm in Ovid (7381 HALL Road, Ovid 607-532-9475). Check out their websites to get hours and directions. Or click on "U-Pick" to find other farms in your neighborhood that are open for picking.
Blueberries are one of my favorite fruits to pick. No need to break your back. The harvesting is quick and painless and it’s a great social activity since you can chat away with your friends. I always meet someone I know when I’m picking at Glenhaven. Many children come for the event. They either help their parents pick, or just have a private blueberry feast, or lay out a blanket in the shade and watch the others pick. Everyone has a good time. Blueberries are the best to freeze and baking requires no advance preparation. We just put a huge bowl on the table and let passerbyers grab the blueberries by handfuls.
