The Suttles Family, Mike, Janet,
Missy & Jeff, Michaelle & Wayne & Deano
would like to introduce to you.....
Our U-Pick Blueberry farm right here in El Dorado Hills.
Our children, nieces and nephews Neighbors
and family have helped us plant and nurture our
650 blueberry plants.
From cultivation to planting and everything in between we have all worked together to make
our little farm a reality.
We invite You and Your children to come share in this unique experience to see....
"Where do Blueberries come from ?"
We'll show you..... We supply the buckets and teach you how to pick....come explore our field and pick some for yourself.....
Blueberries are just Yummy all by themselves...
Eat them by the handfuls....put them in fresh fruit smoothies, in your yogurt... on your oatmeal or cereal or sorbets they are a great addition to your leafy greens......and much more.
And of course the baking opportunities are out of this world ! Muffins, Pies, Cobblers..PANCAKES !!! Just to name a few ! So we hope to see you sooon!!
It is a good idea to wear a hat, ANDyour comfortable CLOSED "TOAD" shoes ARE A MUST to walk in the field to pick your berries. Drink plenty of water.....
We want everyone to have a great experience.
You have probably heard the phrase:
Once in a Blue Moon.........
Is it really Blue? You can imagine it to be..
There is talk that once a volcano put so much volcanic ash in the atmosphere that the moon actually looked blue....and the phrase was coined...but actually.....
A "Blue Moon" is the second full moon in a calendar month. Usually only occurring once every three years.....So a blue Moon therefore is known as something......... "Rare and Exquisite"
All of us here at.....
Once in a.. Blue Moon Berries
Dedicate the meaning behind our name to two rare and exquisite people who graced our lives...
Our sister Patty - Maddie and Andrew's mommy...
And to Our niece Kennedy who will forever be 12
dancing on those clouds....sending kisses on those moon beams.
And..to all the rare and exquisite loved ones in your lives. xo
Our goal is to minimize the environmental impact while protecting our crops. We use only OMRI certified Organic products here at the farm. We pull weeds by hand to make sure and protect the environment
Our Baby Blues...Were off to a bit of a slow start this year....the last rainstorm of the year knocked off a lot of blooms and the cool weather slowed the ripening but as it heats we should have lots of ripe berries
Please don't hesitate to call if you have any questions
Please feel free to have a
family picnic - scouts night out - girls night - bring "snacks"...
the possibilities are endless : ) just call
Please call Janet for any updates, questions
We are a U-pick farm
When storing berries in the refrigerator, don't wash them until you are ready to use them,,,They will last longer that way.
If you wash them for freezing, make sure they are thoroughly dry and cool before bagging for freezing.
