Embarking on an adventure to a u-pick berry farm is the quintessential warm weather family-friendly activity, and we're fortunate to have an abundance of fruit and berry picking opportunities in the Bothell, Washington area. Read on for a roundup of u-pick farms within a 30-minute drive from Bothell, tips to enhance your visit, and insights into the peak seasons for locally-grown pick-your-own produce.

Local U-Pick Farms

Bothell is a short drive away from the best berry and fruit picking farms in Washington, including:

  • Agrobliss Farms in Everett is the spot for u-pick blueberries, sunflowers, honey, and more.
  • Visit Foggy Ridge Farms, an organic, family-owned farm in Woodinville, to try aronia berries — also known as chokeberries. Aronia berries are small, dark fruits native to North America and considered one of the richest sources of plant antioxidants. Each year, Foggy Ridge Farms tests new seeds to find the best-tasting varieties.
  • Mountainview Blueberry Farm in Snohomish has 9 acres of blueberry fields containing unique varieties of blueberries you won’t be able to find anywhere else. In addition to their blueberry picking, don’t miss their yearly sunflower festival with 25 varieties of sunflowers that you can pick, and a butterfly release.
  • The fifth-generation Bailey Family Farm in Snohomish offers over 50 acres of vegetables and fruit for picking from June through October. They start the u-pick season in the spring with strawberries and grow greens, raspberries, garlic, potatoes, snap peas, onions, beets, green beans, zucchini, pickling cucumbers, herbs, carrots, flowers, corn, apples, fall squash, pumpkins, and gourds.
  • Raising Cane Ranch is much more than a farm. This Snohomish destination includes u-pick apples, currants, figs, aronia berries, blackberries, raspberries, hazelnuts, and chestnuts along with an on-site cidery, and farm stays.
  • Skipley Farm is a small but diverse farm on 8 acres in Snohomish. They’re best known for their large variety of u-pick apples and also offer quince, tomatoes, grapes, blueberries, persimmon, cherries, pears, plums, kiwis, blackberries, black and red currants, gooseberries, jostaberries, medlar, serviceberry, aronia, autumn olive, thimbleberry, and elderberry, with more fruits like figs and permissions to come in future years.
