Spring has arrived at Blueberry Heights farm. Our blueberries are flowering and the bees are pollinating! On Sunday we celebrated the start of Spring at Mina’s Neighbourhood Market. We debuted two new products – our blueberry pie milkshake and our blueberry banana coconut smoothie! They created a lot of excitement and we will definitely be looking at incorporating them again into future markets. Thanks to all who came by to say hi!
Right now we are working hard at getting ready for the upcoming season. Our farm cottage will be opening this month for self-catering rentals which we are very excited about. The cottage has beautiful views over Ebenzer Dam and is a perfect weekend getaway for a couple or small family who want to experience a working blueberry farm. There are also lovely walks around the farm through the pine forests, around Stanford Lake, Ebenezer Dam and the waterfall. So if you’re looking for a place to stay next time you’re in the Magoebaskloof please give us a shout!
We also have the Spring Festival coming up which we are excited about as it will be the first time we will be exhibiting our products at the festival. If you are around please come have a chat with us at our stall at the Magoebaskloof Hotel. We will be well stocked with a range of our blueberry delights!
Then we are looking forward to another exciting blueberry harvest season starting in November where we will be doing Pick Your Own more regularly. People will be able to come pick their own fresh blueberries straight off the bushes over most weekends during the season – November to February!
