Tips:

  • Bring your own containers and even better chilly bin to keep those lovely fresh blueberries travel home with you safely and tasty; at Ngatea you can take the bucket with you but still BYO container would be more sustainable.

  • If your schedule is bit tight or not feasible to travel for too long in the car, then Ngatea would be better option as it's 30mins closer to Auckland, if you're from Auckland.

  • Ohaupo has more parking spaces than Ngatea,

  • They open different fields each day, so everyday people could have fresh and nice berries to pick. Still we find fruits are much more and larger when we walk down further the aisle, and alway the case reach out to top of bush or bend down to look up the tree from the bottom, then you'll be surprised (small kids are actually getting the biggest ones)

  • At Ohaupo, the address is the cafe shop if you want to do PYO first, then continue drive for another 1kg ahead and you will see a sign states numbers of filed that open for that day. 1 minute later you'll see cars parking off the road and a blue tent that can't be missed.

  • Their staffs are very nice and helpful

Kindness:

please remember, it is not a free meal. Kindness to only taste few while you picking.
