Friendly folks and so many delicious blueberries! We definitely will be back for more because even though we picked a lot, the blueberries are so good they won’t last long in our house!
We went for the first time today and had a great experience! Tons of delicious blueberries to pick. The kids really loved it! The owners were also very friendly and welcoming.
It was so clean and well organized and perfect for our kids. The kids could easily pick the 3 different types of berries and pick which one was their favorite. We will be back!
Such a wonderful family and beautiful place for photography mini sessions and to pick blueberries! An amazing hidden treasure in Watkinsville!
