There’s a family that is always at the Farmers’ Market selling fruits and vegetables and we purchase a lot from them. The line is always long at their booth. Not long after we moved here, as I was going to get Addie, I noticed a sign on the side of the road that pointed down the road and had the name of their farm on it. Yesterday morning when Vince was picking blueberries, someone mentioned to him that there was another berry farm down the road. Vince was telling me about it and I told him I had seen the sign so on the way back from picking Addie up, we stopped by there.
It’s a HUGE operation. Some day, when I talk to them more, I’ll ask them how many acres they farm. They had acres and acres and acres of corn. Today they had onions, potatoes, zucchini, yellow squash, tomatoes, and cucumbers. We were asking about blackberries. We can call ahead and they’ll pick for us or we can go there and pick on Mondays and Thursdays. They had a few extras they had picked for orders so we were able to get 1.5 pounds.
The blackberries were huge!! That’s one blackberry in Addie’s hand.
Along with making bread and English muffins, we made a cobbler last night and had blackberry cobbler with Blue Bell Homemade Vanilla ice cream. It was delicious.
Blueberries are by far my favorite berry but a blackberry cobbler a few times a year, or blackberry clafouti are nice too.
