Blueberry Season Update!

Hello From Hazel Blue Acres!

Many customers have been calling to see when our beautiful Certified Organic Blueberries will be ready. Here is the update:

  • Because of our cool & wet spring this year, blueberries look to be ready a little later than they have been the last couple of years. We estimate that they will be ready mid to late July. Please check our website or Facebook page to be kept up to date. Or just give me a call or email if you would like! I am including a photo that I took today so you can see how the blueberries look. We still have plenty of wonderful frozen blueberries to keep you happy. 🙂
  • We are excited to let you know that our Blueberry Reward Cards have arrived! (See photo) Receive a stamp when you buy 1/2 flat bags of frozen blueberries, 1/2 flats fresh blueberries OR 5 lbs of you pick blueberries. After 10 punches, receive one of those 3 choices FREE!
