BLUEBERRY SEASON 2015
Our blueberry season is finished for 2016.
The season usually goes from mid December to February.
We have a small amount of frozen berries which can be bought at the farm shed.
Limes, lemons and rhubarb and garlic.
Jams, Marmalades, Jellies,and Cordial ,all organic, are made with fruits from the farm. These are available at the farm .They are extremely good.
We also have a good range of Birdland Seed ,open pollinated, organic vegetable seeds. www.birdlandseeds.com
What to look for while picking the berries?
- Good berries have a light powdery grey-blue colour, the so-called bloom.
- Pick only largest plumpest berries, these are the ripest.
- Do not wash the berries, it will damage the fruit.
- Refrigerate the fresh berries as soon as possible after picking.
How to maintain the high quality of the berries?
Do not wash the berries
When refrigerated immediately after picking the berries can be kept for up to 2 weeks. Alternatively the berries are excellent for freezing. Put them straight into the freezer and do not thaw frozen berries before cooking.
