I love blueberries! They have a great texture, great flavor, and are packed full of antioxidants. And it's now time for blueberries to begin ripening across my home state of Michigan. Yesterday I got my first taste of Michigan blueberries at the Saline Farmer's Market. Kapnick Orchards in Britton, MI just began picking their first blue treats of the season. I also saw several vendors selling blueberries at the Ann Arbor Farmer's Market today. So with the first blueberries appearing at the farmer's market that means u-pick blueberry season is at hand. Here are some updates from some farms in Michigan about the status of their u-pick blueberries.
1. Dexter Blueberry farm (located to the west of downtown Dexter) will begin u-pick bluebrries on July 12th. They sell for $1.60 a pound. I picked their twice last season and it was a great experience and they are plenty of bushes to pick from. Click here to visit their website.
2. Jones Berry Farm in Bridgman, MI will be opening for u-pick on July 8th. They are saying they have a "bountiful blueberry crop". Click here to visit their website.
3. Rambo Blueberries also located in Bridgman, will be opeing for u-pick on July 5th. They recommend you call ahead before you come in. Their phone number is (269) 426-4074. Click here to visit their website.
Keep coming back to the website for updates as the season progresses.
