It’s Blueberry Season in our neck of the woods!
If you are looking for some AWESOME hands-on summer fun for the whole family in the Athens/Watkinsville, Georgia area, get on over to Damn Good Dawg Farms where good times are ripe and ready for pickin’!
This quaint family-owned farm is harvesting three kinds of blueberries this year!
The Alapaha, the Brightwell, and the Vernon.
Alapaha Blueberries are a medium-sized, darker blue, named for the Alapaha (a-LAP-uh-ha) River in Southern Georgia. These berries are perfect for eating fresh off the vine, preparing healthy snacks, or freezing for more kitchen fun later in the season! The Alapaha were Trillian’s favorites!
The deep blue, medium-sized Brightwell Blueberries are also perfectly sweet and great for instant enjoyment! It was a fair debate, but I personally found the Brightwells to be the sweetest!
And check out the HUGE Vernon Blueberries! These large, firm berries are rated highly for excellent natural flavor, coming in slightly more tart than the other two varieties. But, did I mention they are GIGANTIC! The Vernons were Gramma’s favorite!
Grab a bucket, or two, or even three, and head to the field for some good, old-fashioned, SUPER delicious farm fun!
DGD Farms is a proud supporter of the Oconee Area Resource Council and the Athens Area Diaper Bank. In these trying times, local organizations rely on community rallying together; and it warmed our hearts to see DGD Farms collecting donations from farm patrons willing to round up the total price of their purchase to benefit our friends and neighbors!
