Blueberries are a great snacking choice, not only for their delicious flavor and versatility in recipes, but because they are a nutritional powerhouse! Low in fat and calories, high in fiber and Vitamin C, blueberries are rich in antioxidants. Eating 1/2 cup of blueberries daily provides antioxidant activity that has been shown to help protect against the effects of aging, including heart disease, arthritis, and short-term memory loss.
The picking seasons for each fruit are very specific and depend on the unpredictable New England weather! It’s a smart idea to contact the farm before heading out to check and see what’s available.
