BLUEBERRY SEASON IS OVER…
The season started early and ended early. Because of the rain and heat, the jersey crop was very limited this year.
YOU CAN STILL BUY FROZEN BERRIES AT OUR BANGOR FARM… located at 61687 34th Ave from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. for the next week or so. Cost is $25 for 5 lbs of Naturally Grown ( no pesticides) berries. Also, you can sign up on line at the link at the top of this page for a monthly supply of winter frozen blueberries.
“Good Feelings” – our new ice cream
When you want to feel good on a down day…or feel better on a good day, you know that ice cream is the answer! And recognizing that, Joe’s Blues has introduced it’s newest product – Michigan made vanilla ice cream infused with our wonderful, low sugar blueberry preserves.
Nothing artificial here, just wonderful not-too-sweet delicious summer ice cream. It’s available at Green City Market and at our farm markets in Bangor and Gobles, MI. We partnered with Mooville Dairy in Nashville, Mi north of Battle Creek to create what we think is the best blueberry ice cream ever. It reinforces our philosophy that you can’t afford not to offer your customers the best!
Bike to the Farm… and Save
Daniel’s on the trail to some great blueberry picking this summer. He’s planning a bike trip with his friends along the KalHaven Trail, an old railroad right-of-way that is now a Michigan State Park and runs from Kalamazoo to South Haven.
Just before Gobles, he’ll find a sign directing him to the Joe’s Blues Farm near 29th street and he’ll take a detour to do some serious blueberry picking and load up his backpack. And because he rode in on a bike, all those naturally grown blueberries will be half price. Here’s a link to the trail: Kal Haven Trail.
