16 Places You Can Find Fresh Picked Blueberries In South Georgia

- UPDATED

License plates in the Peach State may have peaches on them, but blueberries are the No. 1 fruit produced in Georgia today. According to the Department of Agriculture, blueberries in Georgia account for more than 18,000 acres of farmland and yield 39 million pounds each year. Below is a list of places you can find fresh picked blueberries in South Georgia.

Georgia Grown notes that Georgia soil is sandy and acidic – ideal for blueberries, while the state’s shorter winters and longer spring and summer months provide an ideal climate for growing.

Here’s the list

  • Anna’s Garden
  • Annie Farm’s Market
  • Burton Brambles
  • Burton Brooks Orchard
  • Dodge County Farmers Market
  • Hat Creek Plantation
  • Hidden Oaks Farm & Produce
  • Mark’s Melon Patch
  • Mike’s Country Store
  • SL Sausage Company
  • Southern Grace Farms
  • The Fruit Factory
  • The Market At Rutland Farms
  • The Peach Depot
  • Three Ponds Farm
  • Wilkes Family Farm
blueberries in South Georgia
Blueberries are the No. 1 fruit produced in Georgia today.

Blueberries are a small but powerful fruit. They are packed with antioxidants, and their deep blue color comes from a natural pigment called anthocyanin. This pigment has been studied and known for reducing inflammation.

With a sweet and tangy taste, blueberries can complement nearly any meal and are delicious to eat anytime. Many people opt for blueberries in muffins, pancakes, or yogurt at breakfast, but dessert is where blueberries can really stand out. In South Georgia, blueberry cake is a popular dish. One of my favorites is still blueberry cobbler.

Do you have a go-do blueberry dish or dessert? Where is your favorite place to get fresh picked blueberries in South Georiga? Share your thoughts in the comments.
