Best blueberry U-pick farms in the Seattle area

Grab a basket and gather up this ideal U-pick fruit.

Updated: August 18, 2022: It’s blueberry picking time for these farms. Many farms are closing early due to the heat though, so be sure to call the farm to check hours.

Bring your little helpers to visit one of these Puget Sound area blueberry U-pick farms. Blueberries are an ideal U-pick crop—you get to stand upright and there are no thorns! Not to mention they’re a “superfood” that both kids and adults will eagerly gobble up.  Remember to call first to make sure the farm is open and there are berries for picking. Some farms are open in July, while others don’t usually get going until August. The season continues into September.

Here are a few tips for before you pick:

Some blueberry U-pick farms are cash or check only, so be prepared. (Likewise, an increasing number of all types of businesses have gone cash-free.) Prices generally range from $2 to $4 per pound.

Some farms are certified organic, some follow organic practices without being certified, and others take a conventional approach. If you want to know what a farm’s growing practices are, just ask.

Kids are welcome and should be supervised, but most farms do not allow dogs.

You’ll be out in the sun, handling stain-inducing fruit, so dress everyone accordingly. Pack hats, sunscreen, wet wipes, snacks, and plenty of water. Consider bringing a change of clothes and shoes, and some mosquito repellant, too.
