$10 for $20 Worth of Pick-Your-Own Blueberries
Self-picked blueberries cost $2.75 per pound, unless the haul weighs in at more than 12 pounds, in which case the price drops to $2.50 per pound. The VanderHelms supply each fruit hunter with a bucket to use while picking, and recommend visitors wear durable shoes, a hat, and sunscreen.
Tidy rows of blueberry bushes stand as high as six feet tall and stretch for as far as the eye can see at VanderHelm Farms. Fresh, juicy blueberries dangle by the hundreds from each plant, ready to be hand-plucked and taken home for pie recipes, healthy snacking, or emergency paintball ammunition. The VanderHelm family takes pride in inviting the community to forage through their bounty of seven different types of highbush blueberry, such as Snowchaser, San Joaquin, and Legacy. Regardless of variety, blueberries possess many healthful attributes on top of their deliciously tart taste, including antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties that help alleviate the effects of cardiovascular disease, cancer, and other age-related conditions.
