Everybody knows that Quebec has some incredible cuisine. But not only do we make good food, but we grow it, too. Thanks to the climate and the passion and dedication of our farmers, you can find some pretty amazing u-pick blueberry farms not too far from Montreal. If you're like me and love fruit, then picking your own is not only fun, but is also delicious.

Because the only thing better than enjoying the fruits of your labour is getting the chance to enjoy some of Quebec's most beautiful areas.

And because you're probably too excited to get home and turn your blueberries into pie or scones or jam, all of the places listed here are less than two hours from Montreal.

Depending on the farm, the season may be longer or shorter than others, so it's best to call ahead to make sure that there are still berries to pick and that the farm blueberry field is open on any given day.

But with so many people wanting to have their pick, take a look and plan a day at any of these farms to get your fill for the season.
