Go Blueberry Picking! 3 Farms Within Driving Distance of New Orleans

Season Open Now

May 30, 2024
June and July are blueberry picking months!

Picking your own berries is a really fun time for everyone in your family. Even the little ones can get in on the action. Besides just popping the delicious fruit right in your mouth, you can have a great time in the kitchen with your kids making blueberry smoothies, muffins, pie, cobbler, cookies, ice cream and more. You can also put it on your cereal or in your yogurt. We all know blueberries taste good, but did you know they contain the most antioxidants of any fruit? Plus they have been proven to reduce DNA damage which helps to protect against aging and cancer!

A 1 cup serving (148 grams) of blueberries contains:

Fiber: 4 grams.
Vitamin C: 24% of the RDA.
Vitamin K: 36% of the RDA.
Manganese: 25% of the RDA.
Small amounts of various other nutrients. Blueberries are also about 85% water, and an entire cup contains only 84 calories, with 15 grams of carbohydrates.

For the optimal picking experience, go in the early morning to avoid the extreme heat, wear sunscreen, and a hat. It's rained so much lately you should definitely wear your rubber boots.

Each farm listed below has their own instructions on how things are done on their farm so be sure to check out their websites and call before you go to make sure they are open. Several only take cash or check for payment.
