Buffalo Creek Berry Farm has over 2500 blueberry bushes. Blueberries develop in clusters on branches of a flowering shrub; they are small, ranging from 2/10 to nearly ¾ of an inch in diameter depending on variety, with a flared crown on the end. Unripe blueberries change from green to pink to light purple. Ripe blueberries are deep purple and plump - best when their outer waxy cover begins to fade. Ripe, ready to u-pick berries should be sweet and flavorful.
Season – early June to late July. Exact dates vary year to year. It is best to pick early to late morning. The berries become mushy on hot afternoons which is why we are open primarily in the morning. OPEN in JUNE.

Choose from over 2000 blackberry bushes. Blackberries are a bramble bush with and without thorns. Their fruit develop on canes into multi-celled, bumpy appearing berries. They are often larger than blueberries and darker in color. Unripe blackberries are similar to blueberries in that both go from green to pink before becoming dark blue when ripe and ready to pick. Blackberries are usually more tart than blueberries.

Mulberries are a tree with deliciously sweet fruit that are similar to a blackberry without the hard seeds and super sweet. Harvest is usually by hand or gently shaking the branches of the tree. We have 16 trees in 3 locations on our farm.

With limited supply, these are only available pre-picked. See our Picked 4 U page to reserve yours before they disappear! Similar to blackberries but much more delicate to grow and pick, our raspberries are bright red and firm to soft when ripe. Our variety is more firm than other varieties so they last longer in the fridge. You still need to enjoy raspberries fairly quickly (within a day or so) or freeze for later.
Season – around mid-June to mid-July. Exact dates vary year to year. Sign up for our email newsletter or follow us on Instagram or Facebook to learn updates on u-pick days.
