What to do with your blueberries when you get home
When leaving the farm, leave the plastic bag open if possible so the berries will not sweat.
Once you are home, lay your berries out on a towel to dry and you can pick through them for any nature or leaves you brought home.
We suggest you do not wash until ready to eat.
Place them in a single layer sheet pan and freeze. Remove them and place in ziplock bags.
Blueberries will keep for a long time in the freezer if properly frozen.
