Blueberry Picking at the White Oak Farm in Renick, West Virginia

By
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Stuart & Watts Real Estate WV0026375

White Oak Farm, Renick, WVI have been hearing about blueberry picking at the White Oak Farm in Renick, West Virginia, since moving to Lewisburg in 2005.  Well, today my husband and I went blueberry picking.  We traveled from Lewisburg, to Renick, WV, to the White Oak Farm.  This was a very scenic, 30-minute drive to Renick, a rural farming community.  The day was warm, with an overcast sky with rain in the forecast.

Upon arrival at the White Oak Farm in Renick, we parked and walked over to the purchasing area.  We were given buckets that had a rope that you tie around your waist, so your hands are free for picking.  Each bucket had a plastic bag liner.  Once you are finished picking, and go to check out, the bag is taken out of the bucket and weighed.  

Our buckets were full of blueberries.  We picked a total of 12 pounds and the cost was $19.20.

What I really liked is that the blueberry fields are netted to keep out birds.  I also found out that this insures that the berries are allowed to reach their peak ripeness.

To the left are the berries we picked. I was informed to clean the berries, removing stems and leaves...BUT DO NOT WASH.  Put them in freezer bags, and wash the berries when you are ready to eat them.

The owners, Max and Anne Robinson, use minimal pesticides, to produce naturally healthy berries. They are grown in mulched beds with mowed aisles that really made it easy for us to access the berries with ease.

The White Oak Farm also has raspberries, and we can't wait to pick some of these delicious fruits.

You can pick your own berries for $1.60 lb. ($9.60 a gallon) or they will pick for you for $2.85 lb. 

For information on hours and location, contact Max and Anne Robinson at the White Oak Farm at 304-497-3577

Located 16 miles north of the Lewisburg; Interstate 64, Exit 169, follow US Rt. 219 North to Renick. White Oak Farm is 1 1/2 miles off of US Rt. 219 on Brownstown Road on the right.

Hi Rebecca-That is a lot of berries but OH so worth it. I think that is a great idea with the netting. I have been berry picking before. You eat one and put one in the bucket then repeat <SMILE> I would love the raspberries  as well. They are one of my fav fruits. I wish they had that around here. I love fresh produce. Have a wonderful weekend. <SMILE>

I remember going on road trips as a child. We picked blueberries once and that day stands out in my memory as being so much fun. Of course my sister and I were virtually purple when Mom got us back in the car. It was FUN!!

I love blueberries....I eat them all the time on my cereal.  I think the picking would kill my back though!
