It’s July and the blueberries are ripe! We all know that the antioxidants in blueberries help to keep us healthy, and if you’ve been to the store lately, you’ve probably seen blueberries there for about $2.50 for a pint container.
Why not load up your kids and go pick some Georgia blueberries? I haven’t found a Douglas County blueberry farm, but I’ve confirmed that there are blueberries at the following Carroll County farms:
Garmon Family Farm
