The Nature Coast’s U-Pick Season is upon us. Local blueberry and peach growers are open for business. You can find several NatureCoaster growers by visiting our Agritourism page in the directory (Click here). Blueberry season runs until Memorial day weekend, more or less. Be sure to call the farm before you drive out because Mother Nature is in charge of farming, but take some time this year to go out and pick your own delicious fruits and veggies.
