Great Places for Blueberry Picking Long Island – what could be nicer than a day picking blueberries with friends and family? Other than getting to eat them afterwards of course!
Whether you are looking to make blueberry muffins, blueberry pancakes or just eat them raw – here is a list of the best places to go blueberry picking in Long Island.
Blueberry picking season is from July to late August in Long Island.
4395 Hortons Ln, Southold, NY 11971
Bhavana Berries is a 30+ acre organic blueberry orchard located on the North Fork of Long Island. “From July to late August, the farm is open to the public for U-Pick blueberries. In addition to blueberries, we grow organic garlic that may be available at our farmstand in front of the farm.
We named our farm after the Sanskrit concept bhavana, meaning the cultivation of mind, body, and spirit. Bhavana Berries are dedicated to cultivating a sustainable blueberry orchard. But to a larger degree, we are dedicated to cultivating a healthy and responsible food community that connects the farm itself to the people who work on the farm everyday to the people who eat the fruit of our labor. We believe that building such a community is not only important for the success of our farm, but also for our society at large. The ancient South Asian concept of bhavana is inextricable from our approach to sustainable, organic farming.
Bring your friends and family to Bhavana Blueberries and pick as many blueberries as you’d like. We supply the buckets but you can bring your own if you choose. Fresh picked organic blueberries.”
