It always catches us by surprise, y’all — but it’s berry picking time again! We’re back this year with our annual round up of where you can pick your own berries in Middle Tennessee (and maybe even a little beyond!). Remember that these crops are available between May-July, so always verify which berries are in season prior to making the trek! Also, check for a mailing list, as many farms have an email list so you can get up-to-date information.
Our usual disclaimer: Remember that these places are WORKING FARMS. Many, if not most, of these businesses do not have websites. We do our very best to provide accurate information, but you should always call ahead to verify the farm’s information. Some farms themselves even recommend to call ahead to check the availability of the crop, due to weather and demand. If you notice that a certain location has fallen off the list this year, that’s because we could not find enough reliable information that we felt comfortable including it this year. If we missed your favorite, please add it in the comments! As always, bring cash as many of these establishments do not take credit cards.
