Santa Maria-based farm, U-Pick Blueberries, has announced their fruit-picking season has officially begun.
The family-friendly, small-scale farm located at 3665 Dominion Road in Santa Maria, offers both pesticide-free blueberries and strawberries for the picking.
Social distancing protocols are asked to be observed.
The company announced their strawberry-picking season opener to be April 15 and two days later, blueberries were ready for harvesting.
“It was to be a relaxed project growing Pinot Noir and Chardonnay along with a variety of vegetables and fruits, including a grove of olive trees.”
Blueberry U-Pick season runs through July.
The farm is open daily, Monday-Sunday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., though hours of operation may vary as berries are available.
