Blog the Barrens: A Trip into the Wild Blueberry Wilderness of Maine
Did you know that Maine is home to more 60,000 acres of Wild Blueberry barrens?Tweet this The tiny berries are native to Maine and Eastern Canada and Quebec and are much different from regular (also known as highbush) blueberries, which are grown commercially all over the world. The Wild ones have twice the antioxidants of their cultivated cousins and have a much more intense blueberry flavor.Tweet this
This past week we invited a group of our favorite health and nutrition bloggers to come with us on a trip to visit the Wild Blueberry barrens of Maine, and to show them just how unique and special these little berries are. We had quite the fun trip full of gorgeous views, delicious dinners and of course hundreds and hundreds of Wild Blueberries! Over the next few weeks we’ll be introducing you to these fabulous bloggers, but for now, some of our favorite photos from the trip!
