Cloud 9 Relaxation

Picking dates for 2016

Blueberries in late June, July

U-Pick blueberries are the cornerstone of Cloud 9 Farm since 1974. Just a short 15 min. drive from Asheville, we are one of several blueberry fields around. Long standing customers pick first, then the field is opened to the public. Call ahead.

2018: We anticipate opening the week of Monday June 18th because this crop is later than usual.. Again, first picking will be for invited guests only (those that have picked before). Stay tuned.

2017 : A fair to good crop this year. At least we’ve had plenty of rain as blueberries are mostly water.

Call 828-628-1758 with any questions.
We have rolling to level terrain that is kept mowed. The grass is dewey in the morning so wear waterproof shoes.
Bring a container to put your berries in to take home. We have top-cut-out milk jugs for picking in, though can always use more if you can save for us.
We do not spray any pesticides on our plants or berries because we value the native pollinator population and our own honey bees that help make our crop. Besides, we believe you should be able to trust fruit right off the bush as you do the taste test to determine which ones to pick!


NO DOGS in the patch. Well-behaved children only. You must keep your children with you as there are ponds and creeks and poison ivy they could wander into.

Picnic table in the shade available no charge.
We keep your safety in mind but, as always, be aware of your surroundings.
