Libby & Sons U-Picks in Limerick is a Cute Potato favorite for blueberry picking this season. The highbush berries are plentiful and easy for the wee ones to pick (most of the ripe fruit is at the lower branches). We chose traditional Jersey Blues, which are sweet and delicious, and Blue Crop, a larger, tangier variety. The 40-acre farm also offers apples and with luck, peaches next summer. There are several picnic tables shaded by apple trees if you want to bring lunch and stay awhile. And trust us, you will.

Owners Mary, Mike and Aaron Libby are some of the nicest and most accommodating people we’ve met. Don’t miss their homemade blueberry donuts—the perfect treat after an afternoon of berry picking.
