Blueberry season.

Blueberry harvest has begun here on the farm and I am so happy to have fresh berries at my disposal. A few years ago, we started hosting a Blueberry U-pick in a small section of the farm and it has garnered a lot of attention from anxious blueberry fans. They come in droves to pick our delicious, organic blueberries. And each year, I get question after question asking "When will the U-pick open?" So we've started a Facebook page where people can get those answers.

If you're a local blueberry fan, be sure to like that page and come on out to the U-pick to stock up on these beauties. Here's the info on the U-pick for this year:

Applegate Orchards Blueberry U-pick
