Hi to all you keen blueberry pickers out there! I know that blueberries have started to appear in the shops so you will be eagerly awaiting news of when we will be opening for the season.
We usually open around the end of the first week of December, with a little seasonal variation. There's no sign of the first berries changing colour yet so at this stage we are anticipating our first picking day to be Saturday December 10th. This is subject to change so check here for the latest updates.
I need to warn you that the early variety of berries have a very light crop due to the weather conditions at the time of pollination and fruit set so there will not be as many pre-Christmas berries as usual. There are plenty more berries to come later in the season, though, so perhaps plan your big freezer picks for January or February. Be prepared to come in early on our open days in December because it is likely we will get picked out some days.
We will keep you updated on this page so check in again here.
See you soon,
