Welcome to Jefferies Orchard.

Our Market at 1016 Jefferies Road will be open only during blueberry picking times, below.

 

Blueberry Picking -- Scheduled Dates

Wednesday, June 19, 3 pm to 7 pm

 

Saturday, June 22, 8 am to 12 pm

 

More dates may be added. Our blueberry season is typically 3-4 weeks long, but length of season is subject to number of pickers and weather conditions.  Extended heat can shorten our season.  This year's crop is especially nice, with larger berries and great flavor.  Don't wait too long or you may miss out.

 

All dates/times are weather permitting.  We reserve the right to shorten or revise picking times due to severe weather, especially lightning.  Please follow staff instructions when asked to come in from the field.

 

We provide the containers for picking.  We do not charge an admission fee and we do not require reservations or appointments.  We accept credit/debit cards for payment as well as cash and checks (local).  We do appreciate non-card forms of  payment as it greatly reduces our cost for card processing. 

 

Approximate GPS address for the blueberries is 3695 Central Point Road, Cantrall, IL.  You may also check in at our market at 1016 Jefferies Road, Springfield, IL for directions.  The blueberries are approximately 4 miles west of the market.
