Wild Blueberries available in Alton

Looking for wild blueberries this summer?  While they won't be at the market, Taylor-Brown Wild Blueberry Company has fresh quarts and fresh or frozen 10 pounders to be picked up upon order. Please call (603) 776-0432 to place an order. Their website says they will be offering fresh-frozen 5, 10, and 20lb boxes.
Note: They are NOT a PYO (Pick Your Own) farm. Please call ahead to reserve your order and to check availability, as they do not have regular retail hours. Due to a variety of factors, they do NOT ship.
(Note: your blogger is just getting to the end of our 20 lbs of frozen berries from last summer.  Good timing and still tasting great!)
