Could anyone tell me what a fair price to charge for "U-Pick" blueberries" pint? and gallon? My wife and I are buying a farm for the pasture. It just happens to have about two acres of blueberry bushes. The gentleman who owned it passed away. Thanks.

Here in the blueberry heaven of SW Michigan, about a dollar a pound is probably the going price. Last summer, even during drought conditions I paid $8.00 for five pound boxes pre-picked and sorted, so that seems about right for U-Pick.

However, if yours are the only blueberries around, you might get a higher price for them. Here, there are farms and roadside stands everywhere, so the competition keeps the prices down a bit.
