    Larsen Lake Blueberry Farm in the Lake Hills Greenbelt

    Originally established in the 1940s, the Mercer Slough and Larsen Lake Blueberry Farms are owned and managed by the Bellevue Parks & Community Services Department to help preserve Bellevue’s agricultural heritage. The farms provide a pastoral setting for park access and seasonal U-pick opportunities. Please note that Mercer Slough's farm is closed due to Sound Transit construction.

    Both farms carry a wide variety of fresh seasonal produce, cut flowers and other agricultural products. Over-the-counter blueberries and other fresh produce can also be purchased at the Lake Hills Farm Fresh Produce Stand. Bellevue Community Farms Flyer 2021

    People can usually come pick blueberries from mid-July to early September, however, the season varies with climate conditions.  Blueberry picking is only permitted in designated areas during sales stand operating hours. Please bring valid picture identification as a deposit for picking buckets, and remember to check in with the produce stand upon arrival.
