A Trip To Maine’s Neverending Blueberry Field Will Make Your Summer Complete

You might already know that Maine is the largest supplier of lobster in the country, but have you ever visited the beautiful Maine blueberry fields? Because did you know that Vacationland is actually the second largest producer of blueberries? But, not just any blueberry. It’s the Maine wild blueberry that’s our claim to fame. These juicy and delightful little blue fruits are different than the big ones. They’re smaller and (we think!) sweeter and even more delicious. Another great thing about them is the harvest. Read on to find out what makes the blueberry fields in Maine so special… and something you must experience:

Have you ever paid a visit to these beautiful Maine blueberry fields? It really is a bucket-list must for anyone living in Vacationland.

If you can’t get enough Maine blueberries, you’ll also want to check out this epic roadside attraction in Columbia Falls, which takes the Pine Tree State’s love of blueberries to a whole other level. Maine’s Wild Blueberry Land is definitely the most delicious roadside attraction in America, as it’s both a tourist destination and a bakery. In terms of things to do, there’s a blueberry-themed mini-golf course – a must for anyone visiting. Inside the behemoth blueberry, you’ll find just about anything you could possibly want involving blueberries: pies, muffins, scones, jams, jellies, baking mixes, candy, teas and coffee, ice cream, dog treats, and more. A celebration of Maine’s bluest bounty, there really is nowhere else in the world quite like Wild Blueberry Land!

What are some U-pick Maine blueberry fields?

You know it’s summertime in Maine when the blueberries ripen and are ready for picking. There’s nothing like fresh berries for jam, pies, and snacks, and you can pick your own at Libby & Son U-Picks, a beautiful U-pick blueberry farm in Limerick. The farm has more than 40 acres of blueberries, raspberries, and plum, peach, and apple trees. Bring the whole family to pick fresh fruit. These juicy little gems are just waiting to be plucked from the blueberry bushes to be made into jam, added into baked goods, or eaten right out of your hand!

For a U-pick experience that’s also a foraging adventure, follow the Blueberry Ridge Trail all the way up to the summit for beautiful views of the surrounding Evans Notch area. It may be one of the most scenic hikes in Maine. Reaching the summit of Blueberry Mountain in Maine is best for experienced hikers. While not terribly difficult, there are some areas that will require scrambling over rocks. With an altitude of 1,750 feet, it’s definitely a hearty hike. The roundtrip will be about 4.5 miles, making it a fun day hike adventure… especially in the summer. Why? Because if you tackle this trail in August, you’ll have the luxury of picking all the blueberries you want near the summit. We recommend bringing a plastic container to avoid crushing the wild sweets in your hurry to go bake them into pancakes and muffins!
