Local Love: Eagle's View Farm U-Pick Blueberries

So, here's the thing.  We discovered the BEST place for picking blueberries last year and it just happens to be right down the road.  The berries are amazing.  Amazing!!  You literally stand in one place and pick, turning from time-to-time, to fill up a bucket.  There's that many berries.

And their size?  Big.

Big, juicy and sweet.

Not that I want even more people to discover my blueberry honey-hole but if you haven't picked there and you live in this area, you have no idea what you're missing.  Eagle's View Farm in Galway is, by far, the best u-pick field for blueberries in this area {my opinion}.

They have limited days/hours to ensure their bushes are picked relatively evenly, so, as you can imagine, Saturday's are packed.  Their prices this year are $2.20 per pound.  When you enter their property off of Route 29 you can park anywhere in the field on your left.  It fills up quick so if you don't want to walk up the hill to get to the fields go early.

If you bring a bucket or container have it weighed for it's tare weight before you pick.  When you first get into the blueberry field the check-in is on the right {it's also the check-out stand}.  If you forgot bags I believe you can get them at the stand.  And don't forget your sunglasses and water!

Happy picking!!

The only time I've picked blueberries was with my childhood friend at her cottage. We canoed to remote areas in the crown land north of her cottage and found amazing spreads of wild blueberries! When we brought the small, but flavourful berries back to the cottage, her mom baked them into pies for us ... I still remember her dad telling us to lick the plates after eating the pie to get every little drop! Loved those times AND those blueberry pies :) Wendy x

We have a wonderful u-pick strawberry farm not far from our house. That is where I pick a couple of times while in season. I would love to have a blueberry u-pick farm near me! Sadly northern Illinois just doesnt grow blueberries.

Aren't U-Pick's fun? I have such good memories of going with my mom when I was a teen. She even let me skip school to go on the adventure! Scandalous!

Blueberry picking is one of my favorite summer adventures :) $2.20 a pound is an unbelievable price! I believe at the local u-pick farm, blueberries are going for around $4.50 a pound. Great find! I wish I lived closer so I could go visit this lovely farm.
