Blueberries

June is the month of harvest.  Berries may ripen to pick a week early or late depending on the year.  The varieties we grow are Climax, Powder Blue, Tifton Blue and Brightwells.  It takes 5-8 years to establish blueberry shrubs.

Orchard

Our farm is located on Lookout Mountain in NE Alabama.  The orchard is routinely mowed.  Prepare as needed for picking berries remembering sunscreen and bug spray.  Be prepared for uneven footing and a degree of fitness required to walk the orchard.

Hand Picked

Blueberries ripen at intervals.  Generally 3-4 Full orchard picks will end the season.  Ripe berries easily fall into your hand while picking.  You may also accidentally knock off some berries.  Picking blueberries requires care.

Home to You

When you arrive home wash your hands and rinse your berries in a colander under cool running water.  Now that your berries are clean; eat and process how you choose.  The first pick of blueberries can be tart depending how spring comes in season on a given year.  Set your berries out on the counter to ripen a week or two.  Be sure to keep berries dry for longevity.
