Where You Can Pick Blueberries in Maine

Estes Farm Blueberries

Estes Farm in Buxton

If you’re looking for a farm that will let you pick your own blueberries, you’re in luck because there are several in Maine.

Most places open mid to late July, but some not until the first of August. If a farm has a website or Facebook page, I included a link. I’ve also added information about pesticide use whenever possible.

I hope you find what you’re looking for! Remember, it’s really important to check ahead to make sure a farm is open for picking.

What does Integrated Pest Management mean?

This is how the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) defines Integrated Pest Managment, which several farms use in Maine:

Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is an effective and environmentally sensitive approach to pest management that relies on a combination of common-sense practices. IPM programs use current, comprehensive information on the life cycles of pests and their interaction with the environment. This information, in combination with available pest control methods, is used to manage pest damage by the most economical means, and with the least possible hazard to people, property, and the environment.

The IPM approach can be applied to both agricultural and non-agricultural settings, such as the home, garden, and workplace. IPM takes advantage of all appropriate pest management options including, but not limited to, the judicious use of pesticides. In contrast, organic food production applies many of the same concepts as IPM but limits the use of pesticides to those that are produced from natural sources, as opposed to synthetic chemicals.

    Wonderful resource you are creating here, Diane! How I love all kinds of berries…but where we live they are really scarce. It is so great to have them in the juice recipes I enjoy creating. These little gems are powerhouses when it comes to nutrients.
