Update on Organic Blueberries! The bad news is organic blueberries are having a hard time this year. They are late arriving because the early cold weather meant late or no pollination when needed. The good news is Organic Blueberries of West Olive will be starting their U-Pick season this Monday, July 22nd, and we will have some of their berries available for sale at Sweetwater on Saturday, July 27th! They are Bluecrop & Rubles. The hours of their U-Pick operation are Mon – Fri 9-5:30 and Saturday until noon. Address is 6332 152nd St, West Olive, MI 49460. They are in their 3rd year of transition to organic and will be certified organic by next season.

We will also have corn meal and grits along to market. And we’ll have lamb bones along for making your own bone broth.
Also, if you can’t make it to the market this Saturday and feel like a road trip you can stop by our Farm Store Weds & Fridays from 1:00 to 4:00! We’ll have our certified organic beef, lamb polenta & dry beans as well as our rugs and knitted goods.
