“Organic” is Here
Since 2010, Joe’s Blues has been using organic methods to grow it’s blueberries – no pesticides or chemicals. Our focus on sweet, naturally grown berries is well known.
Our efforts have been recognized with a Dept of Agriculture grant to help other small growers in SW Michigan move to organic methods.And now, along with one of our partner farms, we are for the first time offering USDA organic sweet jersey and ruble frozen blueberries. More info coming soon. Watch this space!
Seasonal Change – Fresh to Frozen
It seems like just a few days ago, we were picking this year’s crop.
Our blueberry season started early this year. Right around 4th of July. It was fast and furious.
And now, all of a sudden it seems, it’s all over and we are back to frozen blueberries. Even tough many of our regular customers freeze a good supply of fresh berries, you start seeing those hang-dog looks when you tell them we’re back to froze berries. As we go forward into the fall, there’ll be a few new tweaks:
1 – When our winter CSA starts in mid-October, we will be offering, for the first time, monthly delivery of our new 5 lb frozen boxes. It will cut down on packaging and the new size is a better value.
2- We’ll be offering some value added products to our CSA and to our winter markets, like low-sugar preserves and a new blueberry mustard.

Blueberry Bush Rental – Give someone a magical summer experience – their own numbered blueberry bush at one of our Bangor or Gobles farms. We’ll mail/email a custom certificate and note naming you as a sender. Or…. get one for yourself!
