Woah, Woah Blackberry
Sonrise Farms is located just off the highway. Walk up to a small wooden shed, pay (cash only) for the bucket size you plan on picking and set off to the patch. You will be directed to which rows will have the best luck picking that particular day. The berries are HUGE and the thornless bushes loaded down with ripe and unripened fruit. Sonrise Farms blackberry varieties are all thornless and include Natchez, Prime-Ark Traveler and farm favorite Ouachita.
Blackberry Picking Tip: Pick berries that are fully black, shiny and easy to remove from the plant. These will be the sweetest!
It won’t take long to fill up your red bucket. (You can keep the bucket for your next U-pick farm adventure!) Wipe the beads of Georgia’s summer heat from your foreheads and head home swapping ideas for how to best savor the pickings.
