The bushes are designed to be accessible for pickers of all ages, making it easy for even the littlest hands to grab their share of berries. However, it’s important to note that pets are not allowed in the picking fields, ensuring the bushes stay pristine for all visitors.

Perfect for Picnics

Kid-Friendly Tips

The farm is very accommodating for families. The bushes are quite tall, so dressing your kids in bright colors will make it easier to keep an eye on them as they weave through the rows of blueberries. Also, be aware that bees are attracted to the sweet berries, so caution is advised, especially for those with allergies.

Affordable and Convenient

Bybee Farms offers a reasonable price per pound for blueberries, making it not only a fun outing but also a great deal. They accept both cash and Venmo, which adds convenience to your visit. Parking is free, and the farm provides all necessary equipment for picking and transporting your berries home.

Sustainable Practices

While Bybee Farms is not certified organic, they are committed to sustainable farming practices. They avoid the use of pesticides and herbicides, opting only to spray for fungus during the winter months. This commitment to natural growing practices means you can feel good about the blueberries you’re consuming.

The Full Experience

Our family visit to Bybee Farms was nothing short of delightful. We spent about an hour picking blueberries, enjoyed a picnic lunch with a view, and even spotted a few mountain goats on the distant hillsides. The experience was not only fun but also educational for our kids, who learned a bit about where their food comes from.

Whether you’re looking for a fun day out with the kids, a unique date idea, or a way to impress out-of-town guests, Bybee Farms provides a picturesque setting and a memorable experience. Just remember to wear bright colors, watch out for bees, and prepare for a day filled with fun, fruit, and fabulous views.
