What better way to spend a morning than picking fresh blueberries. I went to Butler's Orchard on Saturday and did some berry picking. When you get there and park they have a staging area where you wait for a tractor then get on a wagon for a ride to the berry fields. Tractors come frequently and hold a lot of people so the line moves fast.
Who goes blue berry picking you might ask? Lots of kids of all ages, from 2 to teenager. Also some couples and a few older people (who pick the most berries, they must be making jam).
What should you bring?
- Buckets, or other containers for blueberries (you can buy them there if you forget).
- A hat and sunscreen. There isn't any shade in the fields
- Water. It gets hot out there.
They also have a playground for the kids as well as several long slides built on the side of a hill. Plan on spending the morning.
