Pick Your Own Blueberries

A great place to pick your own blueberries is at Estes Farm, 114 Waterman Road, Buxton, Maine.  I went last Saturday to pick berries.  They have over 2000 high bush blueberry bushes.  They are reasonably priced per pound and it’s fun for the whole family!  Visit them at estesberryfarm.com for updated hours of openness.   Too bad they are not organically grown.  Maybe Estes Farm would consider looking into pesticides that are approved for use on organic blueberries?  There is a 2011 Production Guide for Organic Blueberries which can be found online at  www.nysipm.cornell.edu/organic_guide/blueberry.pdf

 

You can freeze the berries for later use.  The best way is to spread them out on a cookie sheet and freeze them, then transfer to a freezer bag.  That way they freeze individually and not in one large clump!
