Order Your Fresh Michigan Blueberries
It is time to place your order for fresh blueberries harvested on a family farm in southwestern Michigan. The blueberries are available to members in five and ten pound containers. Cost is $12 for a five pound container and $22 for a ten pound container. Blueberries are only available to Peoria County Farm Bureau members and the maximum order is 50 pounds per membership. The deadline for orders is Thursday, July 9. Blueberries will need to be picked up at the Peoria County Farm Bureau building the following Thursday, July 16, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. The building is located at the intersection of University Street and Interstate 74 in Peoria.
This membership benefit has become quite popular after offering it for the first time in 2009 when members order 1500 pounds. Last year, 353 members ordered a total of 8730 pounds.
Blueberries are known for being a very healthy fruit as they are rich in antioxidants and anti-inflammatories which helps guard against cell damage associated with cancer, heart disease, Alzheimer's and the effects of aging. They are most flavorful eaten fresh but do hold their nutritional value if placed in the freezer.
Take advantage of this membership benefit and order your fresh Michigan blueberries today.
