Cadillac Farms Open Doors For Blueberry Picking

Posted: Updated:

Summer time in northern Michigan is the time when many crops are harvested here.

Saturday was the first day Double L Farms in Cadillac opened their doors for blueberry picking.

They say this summer's weather conditions made for a perfect bumper crop.

Dozens of anxious pickers came and filled up tons of buckets of plump blueberries. Many were surprised to see such large and delicious berries.

"The conditions are really good, it hasn't been too hot or too cold and the blueberries are just booming right now. Hopefully we'll be able to pick until September," says Mackenzie Larrance.

Right now, only one section of the field is ready to be picked. As the summer goes on, more and more of the different varieties will be ready to be picked.
