I've lived here in New Jersey and Ocean County for years and years and just recently found out about this amazing blueberry-picking patch.

There is a giant sign on Rt. 9 in Lanoka Harbor U Pick Blueberry Patch.

Blueberry picking season in New Jersey is from the end of June to the end of July. Weather permitting you could still pick a good bunch at the beginning of August.

Blueberry picking is a lot of fun for the whole family. I will tell you it gets hot out there, so maybe a little fan around your neck would cool you off and a bottle of water. Don't forget some water with you, have fun.

They provide the buckets only. There are no public bathrooms but there is a port-a-potty. Pets are not allowed and a friendly reminder sunscreen and bug spray is advised.

According to the U Pick Blueberry Patch Facebook page, the 2024 season begins in just a couple of weeks.

U Pick Blueberries is located at 611 Rt. 9 in Lanoka Harbor. The key to picking good blueberries - pick the ripest of the bunch and their coloring should be a greyish blue. And, of course, maybe taste along the way. When my husband was a child he told me every time he went blueberry picking, he ate more than he brought home and his aunts would get so upset with him.
