Chase Gaillard, 4, and Grant Gaillard, 8, pick strawberries in the fields at Phillips Farms of Chatham.

Chatham is ripe with opportunities to enjoy local produce, like the U-pick blueberries at Howard’s Farm & Mema’s Fruit Shack in Pittsboro. Alice “Mema” Howard says blueberries are typically ready to pick from June until early August. Visitors can purchase a variety of produce including peaches, corn, tomatoes and cucumbers and satisfy their sweet tooth with homemade ice cream flavors such as vanilla, strawberry, peach, blueberry and butter pecan. The farm stand also operates as a thrift store and sells vintage home decor. It’s open from 1 to 5 p.m. daily except Saturdays, when the farm is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
