WILSON'S FRESH BLUEBERRY FARM
Wilson's Fresh Blueberries is a blueberry farm and nursery committed to providing quality products and excellent customer service. We are passionate about fresh, delicious fruit and are happy to help others learn more.We currently have four acres of Northern high bush blueberries planted. Blueberry bushes take several years to mature, but with proper care they can last a lifetime! We also have thousands of bushes in our nursery.
We are not certified organic; however, we use natural, sustainable practices on our farm, as much as possible.
We are a 10 minute drive from Bobcaygeon, 20 minutes from Lindsay and 30 minutes from Peterborough. See the Contact section for a map.
In season, we offer fresh blueberries for sale at the farm, and at local markets. Check our Facebook page for updates on availability. https://www.facebook.com/WilsonsFreshBlueberries/
Blueberries are recognized as a ‘superfruit’ for their numerous health benefits. Studies have shown that eating blueberries can have positive effects on memory, vision, the aging process, the heart, brain and digestive tract, and may help to prevent certain forms of cancer.
Blueberries are delicious when eaten fresh, but they can also be frozen or dried for enjoyment of local fruit throughout the whole year.
To freeze blueberries, it is best not to wash them because they will stick together when frozen. Simply toss the berries in a freezer-safe bag and freeze! When you would like to consume them, rinse and drain, and then enjoy in pancakes, smoothies, muffins, pies of so much more! If you prefer to wash them first, try placing the berries individually on cookie sheets covered with wax paper and then place the sheet in the freezer. Once frozen, the berries can be placed in a freezer-safe bag without sticking together.
Blueberries make excellent jams, muffins, tarts, cheesecakes, and so much more!
