U-Pick Organic Blueberries at Duckworth Family Farm in Sebastopol
Blueberries are one of summer's most delicious (and healthy) treats and like most fruit, they always taste better right after you pick them. You can pick your own berries and taste the difference this summer at Duckworth Family Farm in Sebastopol, which offers blueberry u-pick on weekends through the end of the season, which only lasts for a few more weeks.
U-pick hours at Duckworth Family Farm are Friday through Sunday from 7 am to 2 pm. Apparently blueberries picked early in the morning away from the heat of the day taste better and last longer, so plan to be there early.
The berries here are certfied organic and they're delicious! We visited on Friday and had a fantastic time picking blueberries, visiting farm animals, and even tasting some amazing blueberry ice cream.
Strap a picking bucket around your waist and head out into the blueberry fields to start picking. The blueberry plants are low to the ground and the berries are easy to pick, so it's perfect for little ones who might have a hard time picking apples or other fruit. Blueberries cost $4.50 per pound, which is a great deal for certified organic berries. If you don't want to pick them yourselves they cost $6 per pound. Of course we had to try the fresh blueberry ice cream made from fruit from the farm, and it was delicious!
You can also visit with some friendly farm animals like horses, sheep, chickens and geese. We even got to feed the horses! There's plenty of room on this 80-acre farm and plenty of families were relaxing under the trees with a picnic.
The blueberries from Duckworth Family Farm really taste way better than the kind you get at the grocery store, probably because we picked them that morning. They're perfect for baking into pies or muffins or of course just eating as-is. It's a fun and delicious experience and a great outing for the whole family.
