WILD BLUEBERRY WEEKEND IN MAINE, AUGUST 3-4 | LEARN MORE

Frozen is Fresher…and tastier

Fresh-frozen wild blueberries are delicious, convenient—and healthy. According to a UC Davis study, frozen fruits and vegetables have the same or greater nutritional value as fresh.¹ Ordinary blueberries are frequently shipped thousands of miles after harvest, sitting around in trucks and warehouses for weeks before they’re purchased. On the other hand, flash-freezing wild blueberries right after harvest locks in their antioxidant-rich goodness, so you know you’re getting the best.
