Pick-Your-Own Blueberries in NJ
Blueberries are great for picking—even for toddlers
Eating local can be a challenge in the winter, but during the summer, pick-your-own farms make it an opportunity for family fun—and there's no better crop to start with than the blueberry. Not only is it New Jersey's official state fruit, but it's also one that grows low enough for even toddlers to pick.
You can bring the whole fam to one of the below farms, all of which offer pick-your-own blueberries. Farms start as early as late June, depending on the year. Just be sure to call and verify the vitals before heading out the door.

Not sure what to do with the 10 pounds of blueberries you bring home? Keep them in the fridge for up to a week, then pop them in the freezer and thaw before eating. For a special treat during a heat wave, let your kids cool off by eating them frozen (cut them first for little ones to avoid a choking hazard).
