Estes Farm Blueberries
Estes Farm in Buxton

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 a few open early in the month and some not until the first of August.

If a farm has a website or a Facebook page, I included a link. Otherwise, you might want to call ahead to make sure it’s open for picking.

I also added information about pesticide use whenever possible. More and more people are looking for organic blueberries, so please let me know if you’re aware of U-pick farms that are organic.

If I need to add or delete a farm, just send me an email or use the comment box below this post. Happy picking!

Weather willing, we hope to be opening for u-pick here in the next 1.5 – 2 weeks! 🔵💙🔵Blue Jay and Blue Ray, the next two varieties, are starting to pinken up as well. (Is “pinken” a word? I hope so!)

What does Integrated Pest Management mean?

This is how the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) defines Integrated Pest Management, 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.
