There are still delicious & sweet blueberries to pick.   It is slower picking.  As we get later into the season, you will need to look inside the bushes and down low.  There are pre-picked blueberries available for sale in the Country Market.

Picking Blueberries

Designated Accessible Picking Area

The rows closest to the ranch building are designated for those with mobility challenges.  A wheelchair can easily fit between and under the bushes.  Chairs are also available  if needed.

Storing and Preparing Blueberries

Unwashed blueberries will keep for up to a month in a dry, sealed container in the fridge. Wash the blueberries when ready to serve. To freeze blueberries, wash your blueberries and drain well, then pack into containers leaving 1/2 inch space at the top or pack in plastic bags. The key is to drain well, and then you can easily scoop out the blueberries as needed.

Health Benefits

Did you know that one-half cup of blueberries delivers as much antioxidant power as five servings of other fruits and vegetables? The high levels of anthocyanin in blueberries, a natural antioxidant, make blueberries powerful allies in the fight against aging, heart disease, and cancer. Anthocyanin is the same substance that gives the fruit it’s rich blue colouring. Blueberries also contain large amounts of chlorogenic acid, which is thought to be one of the “cancer fighters” found in fresh fruits and vegetables. Blueberries also have potent anti-inflammatories such as the arthritis-relieving pigment cyanidin.
