6 Places for the Best Blackberry Picking NC

Places for the Best Blackberry Picking NC – we love apple and blackberry crumble, or just eating blackberries as they are!  We have a great list of farms that offer blackberry picking in North Carolina.


Page Farms

6100 Mt Herman Rd, Raleigh, NC 27617

Page Farms are a “fourth generation family farm trying to keep our heritage alive by bringing fresh fruits and vegetables to you all throughout the year.  This hundred acre farm has seen a lot of change since 1922 when it was purchased.  Many different crops have been grown in these fields year after year.

From ripening strawberries in the Spring time to pumpkins in the Fall, we have been here year round making sure that only the best is grown here just for you. For many years we were proud tobacco farmers right here in North Carolina.  When the tobacco buy-out came about, we had to change over to a new cash crop: corn and strawberries.   We are still a proud family and would like to share the experience of a real working farm with you and your family.

Join us in the Spring for Strawberry picking, Summer for Blackberry picking, and in the Fall for Pumpkin picking and the Corn Maze.  We are conveniently located in Raleigh, North Carolina n​ear Durham, Chapel Hill, and Wake Forest.”

We begin harvesting apples in late August through December, so you will have plenty of time to make multiple trips to Knob Creek to experience many types of apples.

With acres and acres of blackberries, there is enough to fill all of your blackberry needs! We have many varieties of blackberries from July to September. Just as some are preparing to ripen, others are plump, juicy and ready to be picked! 

The blackberries pictured here are a month and a half away from harvesting and, not only are they tasty, but picture perfect as well.  Our anticipated harvest time for blackberries is the first week in July, but harvest times are subject to change based on the weather.
