It's blueberry season in North Carolina and lots of farms in the region offer pick-your-own opportunities. 

You can search for pick-your-own blueberry farms in our fresh produce database. As always, be sure to check in with the farm before you go to find out what's available and when they are open. 

I asked our Facebook fans about their favorite blueberry farms. I hope to make it out to one in the next week.

Here's what they recommended: 

And I'll add Vollmer Farm in Bunn. I've only picked strawberries there, but we've always had a great time.

    Just enjoyed picking blueberries and blackberries at Dr Young's Pond Berry Farm near Angier. Loads of berries, very clean and family friendly. Highly recommend.

    I have been picking blackberries and blueberries at Dr. Young's Pond Berry Farm for at least 15 years now. Love that place!

    Love Vollmer! We always have a treat of homemade ice cream while there too! Kids love the small playground area.

    I know Herndon Hills is. The database that's linked above includes an option to search for organic farms too.

    Do you know if any of those farms are organic, besides Vollmer?
