The Real Blueberry Hill: Frog Eye Farm

Frog Eye Farm

Gathering your own food is a task that is central to the survival of most species, but for many humans it is becoming lost knowledge. Celebrate this critical survival skill by picking your own berries this summer. For the last three years, my wife and I have picked blueberries at Frog Eye Farm, where row upon row of blueberry bushes droop to the ground with tasty fruit from late June to early August. A fun family activity, this pick-your-own operation is also a great value, where the pesticide-free berries are only $3 per pound.

A bounty of berries.

Baskets are available from the proprietor, who is quick to offer a tutorial on how to pick the best berries. Although it is getting late in the season, we found plenty of berries in the lower rows and came home with 10 lbs. Some of that immediately went into this blueberry crumb bar dessert, some was cooked down into syrup for an ice-cream topping, and the rest were washed and frozen for later use, like in hot oatmeal.

Blueberry hill? More like blueberry mountain. Got any recipes to share?
