August is blueberry season in New Brunswick* and there are lots of great u-pick spots in and around the Greater Moncton Area. (This post was updated late July 2020; click through the links to get the latest information from the source!)
What are your favourite ways to enjoy blueberries? Do you pick your own each summer? I grew up foraging for wild blueberries near our summer property and have wonderful memories of heading out early in the morning to fill a cup so my aunt would make blueberry pancakes for breakfast.
Please share your blueberry memories and must-eats below, I’d love to read about them!
I was gifted a few bushes this year as a milestone birthday gift; I’m hoping to pass on this summer tradition to my kids. Until the bushes grow, though, we’ll need some u-pick options, and we thought you might want a handy list of them, too!
Blue Valley Berries offers a u-pick option within Moncton! Head to the Gorge Road (near Mapleton Park) to enjoy these lovely berries. Check their Facebook Page for open times; they are opening for the 2020 season on July 30th.
Trueman Blueberry Farm outside Sackville (which also has amazing homemade ice cream, a sunflower maze, and much more) offers both wild and high-bush blueberries and raspberries for picking; check for availability. The farm is open seven days a week. Watch for updates on their Facebook Page.
Ramsay’s High Bush Blueberries is located between Havelock and Petitcodiac. Call 750-1234 for updates and questions, or check their Facebook page. (Check out the awesome big red chair they have for fun family photos!)
The Elgin Blueberry U-Pick is not opening for the 2020 season.
Now you can take the family on a picking adventure and fill the house with blueberry pancakes, blueberry muffins, blueberry pies, or just enjoy handfuls of delicious sweetness as a snack!
* Technically you can usually pick blueberries from late July until early September, not just in August, but it’s always a safe bet there will be berries this month. Also, please check if the u-pick you plan to visit accepts cash only or if other payment options are available before heading out.
Also, please note that this is not a paid directory.

Happy blueberry picking!
