We have bad news. We are now closed for the season! There are no berries to pick this Saturday.

We feel very fortunate that we were able to open the two days we did, as we know of a lot of farms that didn't get to open at all. Not really knowing all things blueberry, we can only guess that our late freeze, cool spring, and lack of rain for a while played a huge part in our berry production. Even the berries we saw that were ripening seem to have disappeared. We understand that a lot of crops were affected by the crazy spring weather we had. The peach crop in Clanton has been said to be the worst in decades.

Thank you to all those who were able to come out, and to those who helped us out by sharing our posts. We hope next year that Mother Nature will be gentler!

Will we be open Tuesday, July 4th?

Good question! We will drive through the berries on Monday, July 3rd, to assess whether or not there are enough ripe berries for you to pick.

Check our website (www.bearmountainblueberries.vpweb.com), page or Instagram for the latest update. Or call and listen to our message at 205-286-2272.

We will be open tomorrow from 7AM until Noon or until we are picked out--whichever comes first.

If people come out like they did for opening day, you'd best get here early! Not a bad idea anyway, to beat the heat. Be sure to bring some water!

If we have berries on Tuesday, we will only be open from 7AM until 10AM. We are closing early for Independence Day celebrations.

Heads up! We will NOT open tomorrow, Tuesday, June 26. There are not enough ripened berries to pick. There are tons of pink ones ripening, but they won’t be ready tomorrow.

We are planning on opening Saturday, but always check back here first for updates, or go to our website www.bearmountainblueberryfarm.vpweb.com or call 205-286-2272 to hear the recorded message.

We thought we were ready for you yesterday, but WOW! We had NO idea how ready you were to visit!!

I believe that we had 25 cars by 7:30 AM. I don't think we've ever seen so many cars at one time. I tried to make my "picked out" post earlier, but cell service at the stand wasn't working well. I WAS able to put it as our recorded message on our phone number.

Regarding Tuesday: we will drive through on Monday afternoon to see if we have enough ripened to open. Check back on Facebook or Instagram for an updated post Monday night. You can also call 205-286-2272 to hear the recorded update.

I try hard to keep social media and our phone recording updated in a timely manner. Saturday was a surprise. I apologize to those of you who made the drive only to find we'd been cleaned out. Please try again!

Our hours are Tuesdays and Saturdays from 7 AM - Noon. We hope keeping it to 2 days a week will allow the bushes plenty of time in between pickings.

We are picked out today!

Opening Day is coming! We'll open Saturday, June 24 at 7 AM (weather permitting). We'll remain open until noon. Berries are on a first come, first serve basis, so be sure to come early to make sure you have plenty to pick!

Berries are $10 a gallon, CASH ONLY. We provide buckets for picking and bags for carrying the berries home. Due to our sketchy cell service here, we accept cash only. We know the world loves paying electronically, but we can't always get a signal here, so we require cash.

We can't wait to see you! Berry season only lasts about 4-6 weeks, so mark your calendar so you don't miss out.

We know you're ready, but the berries aren't ready for you yet! While we're seeing some blue ones, most are still green. There aren't enough pickable berries to open to the public.

Keep watching our page for our opening day announcement. I know right now that it will NOT be this weekend. We're hoping to have enough by next weekend, but that will depend on the berries.

Excited to see these berries! As you can see, they're still green, but that means we will have blueberries to pick in June! We don't have an opening date yet, but we're keeping watch on them and will post as soon as they're ready for you.

In the meantime, if you could share our page with your friends, that will help us out. Our old FB page was compromised, and lots of folks still try to find us there. We can't post on it, so we have this new page. You can always find us on our website: https://www.bearmountainblueberryfarm.vpweb.com Thanks for sharing!

We would like to thank everyone who visited us this season for blueberry picking. We saw a lot of familiar faces and also a lot of new ones. We hate to see it end, but blueberry season is over for us. We hope you stocked your freezer so you can enjoy the berries until next year!

Thank you again for coming to pick. We look forward to seeing you again next summer. Look for posts about opening in June 2023. Opening day will be sometime toward the middle or end of June, but we'll start updating the page in late May or early June.

It’s a beautiful, peaceful morning here on the farm. I’m listening to the crows fight. The other birds are chirping and answering each other. There’s a little breeze blowing, too.

Now is the perfect time to be picking! Open until noon today.

This will be our last week to be open for picking. We're planning on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday from 7AM - noon, provided we have berries to pick. After Saturday, we'll be closed. Our phone voicemail (205-286-2272) will be updated when we are closed, as well as our social media and website. Please check to see if there's rain here before you come, as we won't open if there is.

We’ll be closing at 10AM today for a family event, so come early! We don’t think the berries will last much longer, so be sure to come get some while they’re here. Open 7-10 AM today.

We've added an extra day this week! We'll be open tomorrow, July 20. We'll be closing early on Saturday, and we want you to have a chance to get some berries.

The bushes are full, but the season is about to wind down. Don't miss out!

The berries have been kissed by the rain and the sun is out! Come pick! We’re open until noon today (or until a thunderstorm). My weather app says no rain until sometime after 11. So come on—time is running out for fresh blueberries.

Special hours this week!

We will be closing at 10:00 on Saturday for a family event. Because of that, we will be open Tuesday and THURSDAY from 7 AM - noon. Now, the weather forecast for Tuesday morning is showing thunderstorms, so check the weather for Clay, Alabama before you head our way. We will not open if there is any lightning in the area. (Or on the way.)

The bushes are full of ripe berries, but they won't be for much longer. You need to make plans to get them while you can. In years past, this has been our final week. We might be open next week, but we're not making any promises. It's all left up to the bushes!

Mmmm! Made some mini blueberry muffins with some of our berries! It only takes 1 cup for a batch. We have PLENTY of berries for you to pick and make your own. Open tomorrow from 7 AM - noon.

I used this recipe, shared by one of our most favorite and frequent pickers:

Bette's Blueberry Muffins

1 1/2 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
pinch of salt
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg
1/2 cup milk
1/4 tsp lemon extract
1/3 cup Crisco shortening
1 cup blueberries

Sift dry ingredients together. Add wet ingredients and soft shortening using a pastry blender. Fold in fruit.
Bake at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes.
