Endicott Farms

Strawberry season comes first, typically in April or May, with blueberries arriving next in June and blackberries following. Blackberry season is usually over by July. But if you time it right, you can visit local farms growing these berries, gathering plenty to make muffins, cobblers and pies.

Or do what a lot of people do and pick extra to freeze in quart- or gallon-size bags. You’ll be happy to have them when the season is long gone.

Oklahoma berry pickers are an industrious, hard-working group. For most of them, berry farming is a hobby. The season is too short to make it a day job. But it’s also rewarding enough to keep growing year after year, happy to see returning customers and the littlest berry pickers getting taller each summer. 

Growing berries successfully in Oklahoma soil takes a lot of work and a little luck. A bad late freeze or storm can ruin the berry season. But when the stars align and the temperature is warm enough to ripen those berries but not too hot to end it short, the season is perfect. That’s what berry farmers hope for each year. We’re crossing our fingers for them — and for us.

Here are some farms to check out this season. Be sure to check online for hours and any COVID-19 protocols that might be in place.
