Blueberry Picking in Vermont 

When, how and where

Published July 1, 2011 at 4:00 a.m.

Blueberries are a great kid-friendly food: colorful, sweet, portable and healthy. They're higher in antioxidants than other fruits, and have lots of vitamin C and fiber. Vermonters began growing highbush, or domesticated, blueberries after Vermonter George Darrow took over the USDA's blueberry-breeding program in 1937. Today you can enjoy the fruits of those labors at pick-your-own farms around the state. The season typically starts at the end of July, but differs based on geography and weather, so call ahead before you go.
