Blueberries


Blueberries are the #ProduceMomPick of the week! Did you know that Blueberries are the oldest plant living?! These berries have been tracked for nearly 13,000 years! Known for their nutrient dense benefits, blueberries are a true SUPERFOOD!

Blueberries are native to North America & Michigan takes the lead in the highest production of high bush blueberries – nearly 100 million pounds per year!  While most of the crop is located in Southwest Michigan, there are over 20 different varieties grown throughout the state.  Due to the high production rates, U-Pick farms are extremely popular within the state & attract many families between July & October.  To find the closest blueberry farm near you, the North America Blueberry Council has compiled a U-Pick Farms directory!
