The blueberry is New Jersey’s state fruit and we grow many different varieties. This gives us a longer season to enjoy these berries every way we can think of. They are full of vitamin C, fiber, and antioxidants and are only 80 calories per cup.
Mood’s Farm Market is well known over a large area for their berries and is a “pick your own” site. They now host a blueberry festival to showcase their biggest crop. Home baked goods featuring these berries are judged as part of this festival. Blueberry wine is produced by most of our New Jersey on-farm wineries. It is one of the many fruit wine varieties produced with New Jersey fruits.
My favorite way to enjoy these beautiful berries is by the hand full on a dish of vanilla ice cream. There are a lot of delicious crops to celebrate this great Ag industry.
Eat healthy fruits!
