Windy Hill Farms: Picking Blueberries, Blackberries & Peaches

Henry and I went to Windy Hill Farms with Connie, Carlos and a couple of their friends to pick fruit. It was a lot of fun! Call ahead for hours of operation: (850) 894-1511. 

Blackberries may have been all picked by now, but there should be plenty of blueberries! Muscadines will be in season in a couple of months. You’ve got to search for the peaches carefully and wear bug spray: John (the farmer) helped us find a few that were ripe. The trouble with peaches is that the bugs like them as much as we do, so if you pick them – discard the ones that have holes in them.
