Our Blueberries

Blueberries are one of the healthiest foods you can eat!

 

Since 1983, Bluegroves Farms has been growing organic blueberries. It began as a small operation only growing three varieties of berries but has since grown to seven varieties and 13-acres of land.

Storing & Freezing

Blueberries are a delicious summer fruit that can be eaten raw, served as part of a dessert dish or used in baking

 

Blueberries quickly deteriorate after they're picked with a shelf life of less than 14-days at 0°C / 32°F following harvesting
-

While it is best to eat them as quickly as possible after picking, here is how you can keep them a bit longer

Health Benefits

Blueberries have a lot more to offer than just good looks and taste!

Eating blueberries continue to be one of the best choices to include in a healthy diet. Blueberries have been considered one of the leading "superfruits" by researchers in North America who keep finding more and more health benefits.

Blueberries rank among the highest for antioxidant activity in testings of over 100 different foods. Being one of the best sources of antioxidants, blueberries can help slow the ageing process and reduce cell damage that can lead to cancer, cardiovascular disease and loss of brain function. Blueberries also contain condensed tannins that help prevent urinary tract infections, and anthocyanin - a natural compound linked to reducing eyestrain.

 

The benefit of eating two cups of blueberries every day exceeds the benefits of all other types of berries combined.
