Blueberry Picking Farms In & Around Jacksonville

Blueberry Farms & Festivals in Jacksonville

Blueberry picking season is right around the corner here in Jacksonville. Typically the farms open in April and stay open through early July. Still, weather conditions and the amount of rainfall we receive during the year can always impact exactly when the crops will be ready. Lucky for us, there are several places where you can go blueberry picking right here in Jacksonville.

Before you set off on your blueberry picking adventure, there are a few things to remember to make your day a success. Apply sunscreen and bug spray before you go. Bring cash; almost none of the farms on our list take credit cards. Consider packing a snack and drink to keep little ones from getting cranky during the adventure. Plan to go early; lots of farms will only stay open as long as there are berries on the bushes. Lastly, and most importantly, contact the farm ahead of time to make sure there are berries available and to confirm their blueberry picking hours.

Chantel Beidleman
Born and raised in the Aloha state and a traveling gypsy at heart, Chantel left the nest fresh out of high school and headed off for college in sunny Southern California. Almost a decade later she met and fell madly in love with her hubby who whisked her off to the great Midwest. After five brutal winters in Nebraska, Chantel realized that home will always be where the ocean is (and the snow isn’t), so off to Jacksonville they went, where this Hawaiian girl now spends her days as a stay-at-home wrangler to her two baby bears. Prior to becoming a household CEO, she joyfully spent her time as the Program Assistant Director of a preschool. Digging deep into wellness and health is her jam alongside spontaneous dance parties with her kiddos are what sing to her soul. Chantel is wildly passionate about advocating for her son, who lives with multiple severe food allergies. You can find her out and about on a daily basis as she is a self-proclaimed busy body and loves hitting up the beach or exploring new spots in town while homeschooling her kiddos. If you ever see this fast-paced mama on the go, be sure to say hi because she is always up for meeting new people and making new friends!
