Let the Blueberry Picking Begin!
Big Bend is open Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday from 8:00 am to noon and on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5:00 pm until 8:30 pm. They WILL be open this Wednesday on the 4th of July until noon.
Berries are $1.20/lb and they are not sprayed with anything--no fungicide, no insecticide. Bring your own containers. I always use the "bucket-on-a-belt" method for hands-free picking.
Be sure to pick up a copy of the new pamphlet put out by the Oregon Blueberry Commission when you weigh and pay. There's a recipe for for Blueberry Chicken Salad Wraps that sounds delicious. More luscious looking recipes on their website.
