Blueberry Picking Season in Michigan

Of all the many u pick fruits my family picks, blueberries are the biggest winner. Our quest for juicy, plump, tasty blueberries is an annual tradition.

Truth be told, my kids consistently eat more than we take home – and they have to pull me away from the bushes. I just can’t stop picking!

Blueberry Picking FAQs

When is blueberry picking season in Michigan?

Blueberry picking season in greater Grand Rapids typically runs from mid-July through mid-August.
 
When cherry picking season wraps up in West Michigan you can bet that blueberry-picking season is about to begin.

What do I need to bring to go blueberry picking?

You’ll likely need to bring a bucket, cooler, or basket to transport your berries home.

Most destinations ask that you bring these containers, but you can always ask before you head out.

We also suggest that you bring a cooler, a water bottle, and a wagon if you have little kids along.

Blueberry Picking Tips

Before You Go Blueberry Picking

It’s a good idea to call ahead or visit the farm’s Facebook page before you head out to pick blueberries.
Some places on this list are only open by reservation.

Questions to ask:
“What are you picking today? When are you offering U-Pick?” 
Not all U-pick days are created equal.  Aim for a day where the berry picking is plentiful and close together and the picking will be easier, especially for younger kids.

“What type of payment do you accept?” and “What’s the price?
Be prepared to bring cash. Some places take checks. Smaller operations may not have the ability to accept credit cards.

“Is there a restroom?”
It’s a good idea to know the status of the facilities, especially if you’re bringing kids along.

“How do we find you?” 
Often, the address listed by a farm is for the main farmhouse, office, or farm market.  And it can be really hard for a GPS to pinpoint a field of blueberries if it doesn’t have its own separate address.  So, go old-fashioned and get directions when you call.

“What do we need to bring?” 
Bringing your own containers to transport your fruit home is common across West Michigan.

What to Do With the Blueberries You Picked

Of course, there’s nothing quite like eating blueberries fresh off the bush.

Blueberries freeze well, making them a great fruit to pick in bulk in season. My kids love to snack on them frozen throughout the year and I love making smoothies, muffins, pies, and more year-round.

We stock our chest freezer in July and enjoy Michigan berries all year long.

Here are some of my favorite ways to use all those fresh-picked blueberries.
