U Pick Blueberries
We have had many inquiries regarding IF and WHEN we will be able to open U Pick. PLEASE READ THOROUGHLY
The good news is YES!!! We will be open for picking once we have ripe fruit, and enough berries to accommodate U pick.
MDAR (Massachusetts Department of Agricultural Resources) has released guidance for Pick-Your- Own farms to follow in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. In order to protect the health and safety of our staff and guests, along with meeting the requirements set by the State,
Upick will need to run differently this season.

WHAT TO EXPECT:
Social distancing of at least 6 feet will be observed and maintained in all areas of the farm.
Masks are required to enter the farm. Any guests over the age of 2 must properly be wearing a mask.
Eating or sampling fruit in the fields and orchards is not permitted, by order of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts
No reusable containers or bags are allowed at this time.
You must check in at the Farm Market or Corn Truck to pick up your container. We will provide a new, single use container for your picking. Please do not bring backpacks, used shopping bags, plastic containers etc. into fields.
Children MUST remain within arm’s reach of family members or guardians.
We will continue to offer online ordering, you can order Whitney’s grown blueberries through our websites at https://whitneysfarm.com/
We know change can be difficult, but these rules are in place for the best interest of all, and mandated by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. U pick activities and our Farm Store provide an important method of getting local produce into the food supply chain and into your homes. In order for the State to fully reopen, and things return to some sort of normalcy, we need to do our part to stop the spread of Covid 19, while still providing the community with nutritious, delicious, and healthy produce.
Despite the pandemic challenges, the crops look great! We look forward to seeing you all and a successful 2020 season.
