Maine is famous for it’s wild blueberries. I had no idea, until we moved, that there are two varieties of blueberries. Ones that grow wild and close to the ground, and another variety that grows on taller bushes. These wild, close to the ground, berries are small, sweet, and packed with flavor. After hearing from a woman in church about this farm she goes to every year to get her blueberries I knew we would have to journey out and take a look. Any chance I get to show my children where their food comes from, we do it!
Beautiful Ridgeberry farm in Appleton, Maine.
This is enough blueberries for 48 of Naomi’s famous pies! They freeze beautifully as well.
We also picked up a jar of blackberry blueberry jam. I should have grabbed a few more as we quickly went through that on our morning toast.
And I couldn’t get them in freezer bags fast enough! Hard to stop eating once you start!
