Fresh Blueberries Have Finally Arrived!

We have been so busy getting ready for the fresh season! Finally our first variety is ripe enough to start picking. Duke, is a firm, medium size berry and for now is the first to ripen on our farm. We will have FRESH PICKED at the Corvallis Saturday Farmers Market (open from 9am to 1pm), and at our farm stand, which will be opening on July 3rd, this Saturday. For a 10 pound flat we will be selling it for $35.00, we also have smaller amounts for sale. We will only have fresh picked, our u-pick field will be opening around mid-July, and as always that variety is Blue Crop, which is a large, sweet berry perfect for eating plain or tossing into a fruit salad. Our U-Pick price will be the same as last year at $2.50 per pound.

We will also be offering our ready to be frozen 30 pound boxes. We wont be starting these until late July or early August. Our 30 pound boxes are washed, destemed, sorted (no yucky ones), and placed in a box weighed out to be 30 pounds. All you have to do is stick it in your freezer and enjoy! They will be selling for $90.00 per box.

Along with fresh blueberries we will also be offering our blueberry products which includes our organic blueberry spread (original, and no sugar added), organic dried, and organic blueberry powder.

This Saturday the Corvallis Farmers Market will be on first street next to the skate park because of the July 4th celebrations. We will still have our booth there.

Ways to use Organic Blueberry Powder

Sales of our Organic Blueberry Powder are continuing to grow. We haven't seen another source for 100% Blueberry, Organic whole berry powder. The taste is wonderful, and each teaspoon is packed with nutrients. At our farmer's market booth we constantly get questions about how to use the powder. Here are some thoughts, but get creative, we welcome your ideas...

Ways to Use Organic Blueberry Powder:

Blueberry flavored frosting or icing
Jello flavor booster (try it with lemon?)
Cookies (esp. good in oatmeal cookies)
Granola Bars
Cook it in your oatmeal.
put it in cakes, crumb cakes or buckles for added nutrition and flavor!

Tell us your best ideas...
