U-Pick Berries: What's in Season and Where to Go

One of the summer’s greatest gifts is the bounty of fresh, sweet berries it delivers. Usually, by the end of May, you can start enjoying nature’s nuggets of sweetness, with fresh berries ripe for picking available into fall. Mother Nature ultimately decides when the harvest of berries is available, but generally you can count on:

  • May:  Strawberries mid-to-late in the month
  • June: Blueberries, black and red raspberries, strawberries
  • July:  Blueberries, black and red raspberries, blackberries
  • August and September: Blueberries, blackberries

Here’s a list of u-pick farms throughout central Ohio that make it easy to pick your own fresh berries to enjoy all summer long. Or, pick and freeze to get a taste of summer when summer’s long gone. Before you go, always call to make sure there’s a harvest to be had.
