"Picking for the Pantries" Day


Pick a free bag for the local food pantries and pick a FREE bag for yourself!

This event is usually held each year on Labor Day Monday, but may change due to picking conditions. To glean the blueberry fields we offer a "Picking for the Food Pantries" day. Pick blueberries for free that day. Keep half of what you pick for yourself and the other half Berry Best Farm will deliver as a donation to a local food pantry.
