Blueberry Upick

Our blueberry u-pick season is always a great time of year, beginning in late July/early August, running through to mid /late September. Please join us at Blueberry Acres for a fun time picking highbush blueberries in the beautiful Annapolis Valley. If you have any questions while here, our friendly u-pick staff is available to help you.

Weather and crop permitting, our blueberry u-pick is open from 9am to 5pm seven days a week in August through Labour Day, and six days a week in July and September (closed Mondays; except Labour Day Monday) Please check our Facebook page: Blueberry Acres, or call 902-582-1482 for daily updates.
Our blueberry u-pick is weather (and crop) permitting. For daily information about our u-pick please visit our Facebook: Blueberry Acres, or call 902-582-1482.
We currently supply our customers a 2 L picking container with neck strap, which allows everyone the ability to pick with both hands and to lift branches up, then all the great berries can be reached.

We would appreciate it if you could bring your own picking containers (similar to ours makes it easier to pick). Due to breakage, we are short of these 2L containers and straps.

We also provide our Blueberry Acres u-pick box (holds 10 – 12 lbs depending on berry size); a convenient container for travel.

Be prepared for the sun! We recommend you bring water, a hat, and sun screen. Be careful with any valuables you bring into the field, as they are easily lost and very hard to find in the bushes and grass.

Recycle your u-pick box! Bring your old Blueberry Acres u-pick box back and use it again. As long as you pick more than 6 lbs in your used box, you receive $1 off your purchase with a minimum of 8lbs.

We have many different varieties of u-pick blueberries: Blue Crop, Blue Ray, Bonus, Berkley, Duke, Jersey and Spartan. Each berry offers a unique flavour and is equally nutritious and delicious.
It does not take long to pick our blueberries. In just 10 minutes you can pick enough blueberries for two delicious blueberry pies!!
Our blueberries cost $2.45/lb. If there are less than a total of 6 lbs per person (or a couple) picked, there is a $3.00 experience charge on each box.

New this year: due to the increased cost of our Blueberry Acres u-pick boxes, we have found it necessary to charge a $1.00 fee for each new box.

You can pay with Visa, MasterCard, Debit or cash.

There is a $1.00 charge for credit and debit sales under $5.00.

We are excited that Blue…a Valley Bistro, will be open in our on-site dining room (formerly Between the Bushes Restaurant).

Enjoy home cooked meals using local produce when available. Dixie has variations of ice cream products!!!, delicious entrees, yummy desserts, and quick and easy take out options. Blue will also be open for breakfast, so you can arrive early to pick berries and enjoy a lovely breakfast. Check out their website or like them on Facebook.

Unless we are picking around our U-pick building, a u-pick bus will shuttle you to and from the blueberry fields. For safety reasons, there cannot be any open blueberries or food on the bus; all blueberries must stay ENCLOSED in their containers.
For anyone with a mobility issue, we have reserved a section beside our U-pick building for easy access and picking.
We do not allow pets in our blueberry fields due to our Blueberry Acres retail farm audits and health concerns. As pets can die when left in vehicles, please leave them home while visiting.
Freezing your blueberries is a great way to enjoy them at a later time. Your berries can be directly frozen in the Blueberry Acres u-pick boxes. Please save our u-pick boxes and bring them back to pick in the next time you visit…….recycle.
We recommend checking out our Country Magic recipes page for some great ways to prepare your blueberries.
November through July, we sell 5lb boxes of frozen blueberries from Blueberry Acres, 1225 Middle Dyke Road, Centreville, upstairs in our administration office. During our commercial blueberry harvest (August through October) 5lb boxes of fresh blueberries can be bought at our u-pick Front Porch when open, otherwise, upstairs at our administration office. The office is open 9 – 5, Monday through Friday.
