Native to North America, blueberries were enjoyed by early colonists not only as a sweet part of their daily diet, but as a means to dye clothing. The berries were also used to dye baskets and to make paint. Blueberries are second only to strawberries as the most consumed berry in the United States.
Rich in free radical busting anti-oxidants; in this case optimizing your nervous system and brain health, blueberries are the perfect addition to your summer breakfast! We like to sprinkle ours over bitter greens with red onion, pecans and balsamic vinaigrette for the ultimate summer salad.
We have a couple of pints to sell you, or you can purchase your very own plant. The farm stand is open from 10-5 today, and we’d love to see you! We also have eggs available, five bucks gets you a dozen fresh eggs!
Thank you for supporting our farm, a local Napa owned business!

Today, and for the past few months we’ve been experimenting with this amazing sugar, vinegar and fruit mixture called a shrub!
We have raspberry, strawberry and blackberry ready for purchase, and they are so delightful! All the ladies here on the farm are enjoying them quite thoroughly! Jess likes hers mixed with Sprite, and Sheri is enjoying hers over a salad mixed with a bit of olive oil! Since vinegar is such a fantastic super food, aiding in stomach health and digestion we suggest having a little of our shrub everyday!
Each six ounce bottle is hand crafted here, and we are selling them for eight dollars! It’s quite the deal!
