U-Pick Blueberries

Come and enjoy the incredible flavor of our U-pick organically grown blueberries!  
Starting in early to mid July and running into mid-August, our blueberry patch
produces some of the best-tasting blueberries you’ll find anywhere.  Watch out
though, as sometimes you can easily end up eating more than you pick!

Call us at 507-288-6233 or email us at
christine@truenaturefarm.com to set up a
picking time.  Make sure you call ahead as due to the strong  demand we are
sometimes picked clean.   We are expanding our plantings dramatically, and should
have many more blueberries becoming available over the coming years.

Processing and Preserving Blueberries

After harvest, wash blueberries in cold water,  inspect
to remove any stems, and spread out in a thin layer to
dry.

To freeze blueberries, place on a cookie sheet,
making sure they do not touch, then place in a freezer
for 24 hours.  After 24 hours, remove the blueberries
from the sheet and place together in sealed
containers.  Blueberries keep best in a deep freeze,
as opposed to a higher temperature refrigerator
freezer.

Blueberries may also be preserved by drying in your
home dehydrator.
Bring the whole family to pick!
