Blueberry Season 2024
Celebrating 46 Years of Growing Blueberries!

Picking Season:  approx. Mid July – early Sept

The Hugli family started growing nutritious & delicious high bush blueberries in 1978.  You can  pick your own or purchase fresh, picked blueberries  in the Country Market.  Please check our crop report for up-to-date conditions during the season. There are 17 acres of blueberries with 17 different varieties that ripen at various times. Children are always welcome to pick with an adult.  Reservations are not required at this time.  Bring your own containers or you can purchase a basket to pick into.  Please do not eat blueberries while picking.  Pick. Pay. Wash. Eat.  Please leave your pets at home.  There is no smoking/vaping in the fields.  Our blueberry season usually runs between mid July to the beginning of Sept.  Credit, debit & cash accepted for payment.  Public washrooms are open.  We have a beautiful, outdoor seating area for guests to enjoy food  and beverage products purchased from our Country Market.  Private, group picnics with outside food brought in are not allowed.  We can direct you to public picnic areas in Pembroke if required.

Picking Blueberries

Designated Accessible Picking Area

The rows closest to the ranch building are designated for those with mobility challenges.  A wheelchair can easily fit between and under the bushes.  Chairs are also available  if needed.

Storing and Preparing Blueberries

Unwashed blueberries will keep for up to a month in a dry, sealed container in the fridge. Wash the blueberries when ready to serve. To freeze blueberries, wash your blueberries and drain well, then pack into containers leaving 1/2 inch space at the top or pack in plastic bags. The key is to drain well, and then you can easily scoop out the blueberries as needed.

Health Benefits

Did you know that one-half cup of blueberries delivers as much antioxidant power as five servings of other fruits and vegetables? The high levels of anthocyanin in blueberries, a natural antioxidant, make blueberries powerful allies in the fight against aging, heart disease, and cancer. Anthocyanin is the same substance that gives the fruit it’s rich blue colouring. Blueberries also contain large amounts of chlorogenic acid, which is thought to be one of the “cancer fighters” found in fresh fruits and vegetables. Blueberries also have potent anti-inflammatories such as the arthritis-relieving pigment cyanidin.

Family Fun Play Park

After picking blueberries, we invite you to visit Hugli’s Family Fun Play Park (admission required).  Click here for more details.

During the fall, we add more seasonal activities such as the 6-acre corn maze, wagon rides to the pumpkin patch, pig races, pirate pumpkin cannon shows & more.
