Farmer Mac's Berries is a upick blueberry farm in southeastern North Carolina. We began production in 1985 and have been greeting old friends and new locals and tourists every year since then.
Our farm is small, just the right size to keep the fields clean of debris and weeds. We also hand prune the blueberry bushes so that they are easy to pick and provide the ultimate in health for the plants, the berries, and the people who enjoy them.
Whether you want fresh berries to eat now or want to freeze them to enjoy over the winter, Farmer Mac's Berries is an experience you won't want to miss. Come out and spend a pleasant time picking berries and making new friends. Hope to see you soon.
