'Pick your own' blueberries at the farm - 10 pints for $70
ShopRite blueberries - 6 pints for $24


Those prices are crazy. We saw a farm out in Morris County with prices in that range and didn't go there. Emery's was much cheaper. $2 admission fee for adults, and then $3.99/lb.

For what it's worth.

My family went blueberry picking at one of the places listed - not important which one - 'pick your own' is 'pick your own.' It is a wonderful experience for children, and nice for adults too. Kids gain an understanding of the hard work that goes into being a farmer and harvesting crops - an invaluable lesson in my opinion.

However, the prices are almost 4x's what you will pay in Shoprite for the exact same quality. Why? Because you're paying for the farm's liability insurance, which is exhorbitant for any 'pick your own' farm open to the public.

My suggestion - go pick a pint for the experience and then go to ShopRite and buy as many as you like ... stock up ... freeze them ... and enjoy them throughout the year.

Also, they charge you for the boxes/containers to put them in ... so you may want to bring your own basket/box!

Went to Emery’s Farm in New Egypt a couple weeks ago. Nice experience but it closes early (they make you leave the blueberry field by 4pm) and it’s getting late in the season by now. Hurry if there’s anything left.

I was going to post about the joys of picking chromium-filled blueberries within JC, but I'm happy to see this is for actual farms outside the city limits. Sounds fun!

How about having your own fresh blueberries picked by your kids this coming weekend??
Let’s have some fun allowing them to pick their own blueberries from nearby places. They will get super excited! And later Blueberries can turn into muffins, pies and tarts. Hum….delicious!
