Summer Adventures: U-pick Berries!

Looking for a cost-effective, fun, outdoor summer activity to do with kids?  Why not explore some local farms for fresh summer berries!  It’s always a good idea to show kids where their food comes from, and to get them involved in the process.  No matter the month, there are always fresh berries to be harvested: June has strawberries, July brings raspberries, and August follows with blueberries.

Check out these farms to plan your next U-pick adventure!  Be sure to call ahead to confirm hours and berry availability, since berries ripen based on the weather (thanks to Parent Map for this great information!).

Remlinger Farms: Carnation, WA

Bryant Blueberry Farm: Arlington, WA

Mercer Slough & Larson Lake Blueberry Farms: Bellevue, WA
