Almost ready for the 2012 season!

March was very kind to the fruit crops, blueberries in particular.  All that warm weather brought out the flowers earlier than normal.  As a result the crop is about 2 weeks early!  We're still not sure of our opening date but be assured it will be earlier than in years past.  The crop looks really good so be sure to plan a day or two for picking your yearly supply of fresh blueberries.

We so appreciated the article in the Joplin Globe about our blueberry farm.  Hope you got an opportunity to read it and note the yummy recipes that were included. However, we forgot to include the topping for the Blueberry Pie recipe.  I'll post it here in case you want to add it to your pie because it is extra delicious!

Crumb Topping for Blueberry Pie

1/3 cup butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup flour

Cream softened butter with sugar and flour.
Spoon mixture on top of pie.
Bake 10 minutes at 450.
Turn oven down to 350 and bake for an additional 30 minutes.


Looking forward to seeing you all at the farm!
