Having a Blueberry Blast at Swistak’s Farm in Verona and Other Places to Pick

Blueberry-20

One of the sweetest moments in a Central New York summer is the announcement of opening day at the local blueberry u-pick farm.

At my favorite farm, Swistak’s in Verona, a friendly driver will take you for a Kubota ride to a berry-laden section of their vast fields.

This year Swistak’s will open on July 14, 8:00am – 2:00pm, and then be open every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday also 8:00am – 2:00pm. Opening times can change due to the availability of ripe blueberries, so make sure to check their Facebook page or call (315-336-1251) before you go. Swistak’s offers buckets for picking, but you need to bring your own containers or purchase containers at the check out to carry your berries home.

Here’s a list of other good spots for blueberries in Central New York all checked and updated for 2016.
