Move over strawberries! It’s blueberry time!
Sadly, the strawberry season is coming to a close. But for fans of delicious Florida berries there’s still hope! The blueberry season is just getting started and there are loads of places to go blueberry picking near Orlando.
From Windermere to Clermont, you’ll find several farms offering u-pick blueberries, but the one we frequent is Sand Hill Blueberries.
Located in Eustis, this friendly, family owned, blueberry farm opens mid April and offers u-pick Tuesday-Sunday from 9am-6pm. It’s always best to check the Facebook page or call (352-636-8204) before you go, just to make sure the hours haven’t changed or bushes have been picked clean.
Here you’ll find row after row after row of bushes heavy with blueberries. In fact, there were so many blueberries on our visit last year that we accidentally picked six pounds.
Farmer Melanie Rose will provide you with all the buckets you need for collecting and then weigh you out when you are done. They take cash and credit.
