Out to the Farm

We started our holiday weekend this morning by heading out the farm to pick blueberries!

Vollmer Farm (Bunn, NC) organically grown and certified blueberries

As I learn more about nourishing, real foods, I have this growing desire to really connect with where my food is coming from, who is growing it and how it's being grown. We're blessed to have a number of U-Pick farms and farmer's markets in our area which helps to lessen the distance between farm and plate.

It's also a fun experience for the kids! Reedy had a great time picking blueberries. I told him to make sure he only picked the ones that matched his shirt. When he would find a ripe berry, he'd yell out "Blue!" :)
