Today we went to Mountainview Blueberry Farm. A wonderful farm with lots of berries. We collected almost 10 lbs of berries in an hour.
They have 2 different types of blueberries available right now to be picked. The staff is very knowledgeable and friendly. They informed us about the different types but if you forget like I do something Mountainview Blueberry website is very informative. Click here to check it out.
Mountainview Blueberry Farm has many different sizes of buckets for you to choose from.
As you walk to the field, the farmer included trivia about blueberries on the fence.
Did you know? Blueberries are full of antioxidants.
Not sure if kids care about antioxidants but…
Did you know? Blueberries freeze in 4 minutes.
Ok maybe only moms are excited by that information. Kids fun facts…
Did you know? Early colonists made gray paint out of blueberries by boiling them in milk.
I wondering how much of that paint actually made it onto the wall. 😁
These are blueberries from the concord bush. The bush is taller thus easy for adult to pick from. Though still accessible to the 1 year old.
The Mountainview Blueberry Farmer was very smart. They alternated row from short bushes to tall bushes so everyone of every height can reach those big plump blueberries.
Farms offer lots of different lesson options. Here are just a couple ideas:
- Blueberry bush through the seasons
- Paint made from berries by HollyMann
- Why are blueberries healthy
- Bloom to berry
Let me know if you have any other ideas.
