We ask that you leave your pets at home.
As a U-Pick Farm food
and pets do not mix.
Blueberry Garden's is a 5-acre blueberry farm
50 miles north of Atlanta Georgia
just off of Ga. 400
We are a U-Pick Blueberry Farm open
Mid- June through July
No Pesticides or Herbicides used.
We are using organic practices to grow the best blueberries possible
We do except cards for your convenience, but each time we accept and process a card that is a cost the farm has to absorb.
So cash would be our preferred form of payment
We thank everyone that helped with the issues we were having in the past
and ask for your continues help each
time you visit our farm.
In the past season's we have had a big problem with kids hitting and breaking bushes, as well as knocking off berries. For every ripe or green berry that hits the ground and is not picked up that is a lost to our profits. If we can't make a profit we can not remain open as a u-pick. There is a lot of work in keeping the blueberry fields trimmed and cut to make picking an enjoyable experience. Ripen berries that fall on the ground are just as good as the ones on the bushes. We do not use any chemicals on the farm.
Also another problem we have had are visitors over filling there buckets. When you purchase a gallon of blueberries a gallon is our picking bucket level to the top (not humped over and all the berries you can stacked as high as possible.) We work to keep the prices for picking reasonable. Think of it like this, you would not go into a grocery store and add more berries to a pint container and expect to get it for the same price marked for a pint. That is what you are doing when you over fill your picking buckets. If every person that came to the farm did that, you can now see how that would cause a profit loss.
The next issue is eating the berries in the field.
Therefore with all that said, we ask that you help us by:
Only eat the amount of berries you would eat if you were in a grocery store.
Parents supervise your children at all time do not allow them to pick green berries,eat as many berries as they want hit bushes, which knocks berries to the ground and breaks bushes. If we notice your child shaking bushes you maybe ask to leave and will not be allowed to return.
Pick up any ripen berries you see on the ground.
Only fill your picking bucket to the top of the bucket. If you over fill your bucket, you will be charged for the additional berries, to our discretion, no exceptions.

Blueberry Facts & Info
Freeze blueberries without washing. When washed before freezing, blueberry skins become tough. To freeze, remove stems and trash, package tightly in freezer bags or containers, leaving 1/2 inch headspace. Seal airtight and freeze. Remove from freezer, rinse in cold water and use immediately.
Use frozen berries directly from the freezer. There's no need to thaw them if you use them in baked products
Storage & Preparation
Handle fruit gently to avoid bruising. Bruising shortens the life of fruit and contributes to low quality.
Sort carefully and remove berries that are too soft or decayed.
Store berries loosely in a shallow container to allow air circulation and to prevent the berries on top from crushing those underneath.
Do not wash berries before refrigerating.
Store covered containers of berries in a cool, moist area of the refrigerator, such as in the hydrator (vegetable keeper), to help extend the usable life of the fruit. Recommended storage time is one to two weeks.
Before eating berries or using in your favorite recipe, wash berries gently in cold water, lift out of water and drain.
Blueberries, fresh, frozen or canned, are a real taste treat. They are nature's convenience food - no peeling, pitting or coring! Simply wash and enjoy them fresh as they are, or use for cereals, salads, muffins, pancakes, tarts and pies or make delicious toppings for ice cream, waffles or cheesecake! Freeze them (without washing) and you will have an excellent product to use later. Can them for pies, cobblers, cakes and muffins or conserve them as tasty syrups, jams or jellies.
Breakfast - Toss blueberries into your favorite hot or cold cereal, add blueberries when making pancakes, muffins, breakfast breads and waffles, add blueberries to nonfat yogurt or pile blueberries into a cantaloupe half.
Snacking - Eat blueberries out of hand, make a blueberry blender drink with nonfat yogurt, mix blueberries with nonfat cottage cheese, drop frozen blueberries in sparkling water for a refreshing summer drink.
Meals - Sprinkle blueberries into fruit or green salads, make a tangy blueberry sauce to serve with poultry, fish and meat.
Desserts - Serve a dish of blueberries for dessert or use blueberries as a topping for lowfat ice cream, frozen yogurt, sorbet, fruit or angel food cake. Bake a blueberry cobbler or pie. Make blueberry sauce and use a topping on pancakes, waffles, ice cream, pudding or angel food cake.
