Blueberries in July

Fireworks, ice cream, campfires, swimming pools…the month of July conjures up many summer pastimes.  July is also National Blueberry Month!  In addition to being sweet and delicious, blueberries are packed with antioxidants and have many health benefits.  

Celebrate National Blueberry Month!

Visit a local farm to pick your own fresh, ripe blueberries while they are at their peak (the blueberries at Reeves Farms are certified organic).  Head to one of these places, but be sure to call first to check availability.
