U Pick 'Em Berry Farms

BY Edible Tulsa

As much as we all would love to have a field of wild berry bushes, with unlimited picking rights, the reality is that most of us have neither the space nor the knowledge to care for them. Luckily there are several willing growers around the area who do the dirty work for us. All that’s left to do is arrive with a big, empty bucket for picking.

Here are some of the best “U Pick ‘em” spots around Tulsa. Is highly recommended you call ahead to verify that the berries are ready to pick and to make sure eager pickers haven’t already taken the day’s supply. For the best picking, head out in the early morning … less sun and more berries. We see pie in your future... or at least some blue-stained fingertips.

U-Pick Berries

Note about Picking Berries: Most of the locations we contacted hinted that it would be the end of May to the first weekend of June before blueberries are ready. Strawberries and raspberries will also be available starting in late May, but you’ll have to wait until late June and July for juicy blackberries.
