Blueberry U-pick

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.

We have designed our Blueberry Acres U-pick box (holds 10 – 12 lbs depending on berry size) for your carrying, travelling, storing and freezing convenience.

We are providing a fibre pint to pick into for dumping berries into your box, as we are unable to sanitize our plastic buckets with laces which we have provided customers in prior years.  These pints are yours to take home if you wish…please remember though, just like your box needing to be covered on the bus for safety reasons, the fibre pints need to be empty on the bus, as blueberries dropped on the floor are a safety hazard.

You are welcome to bring a plastic container (1-2 L ice cream container size) to pick with, however the berries still need to be weighed in our blueberry box. Due to health and safety reasons, once the box is used, it is yours.

Be prepared for the sun! We recommend you bring a hat and put sun screen on, just like at the beach!

Masks are optional, please wear them if you prefer.

We provide a fibre pint to pick into to dump into your box; if you have a 1-2 L container bring it with you when you come to pick, as they are much easier to use.

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 $3.00/lb. 

Each Blueberry Acres u-pick box costs $1.00. Due to health and safety reasons, once a box is used it must be taken home.

You can bring back your box each year you visit us. Every time you reuse your old box and pick a minimum of 8lb of blueberries, you will receive a $1.00 environmental discount.

If picking less than 6lb of fruit there will be an additional $3.00 experience fee.

You can pay with Visa, MasterCard, Debit or cash. NO American Express.

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

We are only a short drive to Canning, Kentville, New Minas and Wolfville.

Our cafe has yummy ice cream and snacks.

Our U-pick bus will shuttle you to and from 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.

We do not allow pets in our blueberry fields due to our Blueberry Acres retail farm audits and health concerns. As pets can perish 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. Remember to save our u-pick boxes for when you return. With a minimum of 8lb you will receive a $1.00 environmental credit for reusing our box.

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 Nova Agri Inc, 1225 Middle Dyke Road, Sheffield Mills, through our administration office (upstairs).

During our commercial blueberry harvest (August through October) 5lb boxes of fresh blueberries can be bought at our U-pick Front Porch during the u-pick season; otherwise, upstairs at our administration office. The office is open 9am-5pm, Monday through Friday.
