Blueberry Farm, Buellton

Santa Barbara, California, United States

Description

Restoration Oaks Ranch, or Santa Barbara Blueberries, is a blueberry farm off of Highway 101 on the way from Santa Barbara to Solvang. It makes for a wonderful visit! You walk along a road past goats and rolling hills covered in oaks until you come to the blueberry bushes planted in rows. Here you can fill a metal bucket with 36oz of blueberries (for $20- less if you don't fill the whole bucket. Also, buckets of family members can be combined into one). Kids really love this! They have a taste and marvel at how much yummier the blueberries are straight off the bush than in the store. There is no comparison! It takes about an hour.
At the end, you pay at the little booth in the front. You can buy chilled water to drink at a picnic table in the shade or on a bench made of logs. Combined with lunch in Solvang, it makes for a perfect morning! May is when the blueberries are the plumpest, but you can pick all the way until mid-August. Wear a hat because the sun is bright! It's good to know that the blueberries are not sprayed.
For other nice farms to visit, check out Quiksilver Ranch in Solvang or Ostrichland in Buellton.
