How do I freeze blueberries?
Blueberries are easy to freeze, anyone can do it! Use fresh blueberries that are completely dry when you put them into the freezer. Place them into a freezer bag and push as much air out as possible. The blueberries will freeze individually, so you can remove just the portion that you want. Rinse the blueberries just before use. Use them in oatmeal, smoothies, pancakes, sauces, and so many more baking needs!
Can I bring my dog to U-pick blueberries?
No pets are allowed in our fields at anytime. This is a food safety hazard. We strive to always provide our customers with a safe food source, please respect this rule to allow us to do that.
Are the blueberries in the field safe for me to eat?
Yes! All fruit in our fields that an employee directs you to is safe to eat.
Are Brookside Farm's blueberries organic?
Our farm is not organic. Our fruit is sustainably grown on an Integrated Pest Management Program. This mean that our farm uses minimal amounts of sprays designed to target fruit-devouring pests at a specific point in their life cycle. Beneficial insects such as lady bugs, lace wings, honey bees, and bumble bees are left alone. Brookside Farms is our families’ home and we strive to take care of the land for generations to come.
