Fresh bush-ripened blueberries are a highlight of every South Carolina summer. Take a morning and visit one of the farms below, where blueberry picking is delightful! An activity for all ages, blueberry bushes range in height all the way to 7′, so little ones can grab the berries at lower elevations and adults can pick from the top! Be certain to call ahead to make sure that conditions are right for picking. And get your South Carolina Agritourism Passport stamped while you’re there (pick up the passports at any participating farm)!
Located in York, SC, Bush-N–Vine offers UPick blueberries on Saturdays from 8am – 2pm. Call ahead to get blueberry conditions and availability. 803-684-2732. Offering picnic tables for lunch (bring your own). Also, they sell picked blueberries at their 3 farm stands. More here.

Dolce Vita Farms
Dolce Vita Farms of Eastover usually offers UPick blueberries, but due to the April frost of 2022, the crop is not as good as usual and it’s coming in late – it will probably be ready for harvest the second week of June.

Call 803-238-1406 to check on availability. More here.
