Berries on the Farm

On our most recent trip out to the farm, we found hundreds of berries just waiting to be picked and enjoyed. This was our first time finding berries on the farm so I took the time to do my research and see just what these beautiful berries were. Turns out that we have wineberries, blackberries, and dewberries. They are beautiful and so very tasty! Take a look at all the fun ways these wild berries are filling our summer days!

Berries on the Farm

***Always do your own research when you are foraging for wild berries or flowers.

We did the research, identified the berries, and determined they were not only safe to eat but super tasty. Our personal favorites are the wineberries. These berries are easier to pick because they are larger, have a little fewer thorns and are way more plentiful in the shaded areas. Definitely a win!

We picked quite a few and brought back plenty for cobbler, muffins, jelly and of course a few to snack on as were fixing supper.

Favorite Cobbler Recipe:

  • 1 cup Self Rising Flour
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • 3/4 cup Milk
  • 1 Stick Butter
  • 2 Cups Fresh, Frozen or Canned Fruit
  • Preheat oven to 350°
  • Melt the stick of butter in a casserole dish
  • Add all ingredients and stir together
  • Cook for about 45 minutes or until the cobbler is browned and bubbly
  • Enjoy with a big scoop of icecream

Freeze Wineberries for Winter

I am freezing several bags of wineberries back for winter. This is a super-easy way to save this juicy sweetness for cold winter cobblers. Just rinse the berries thoroughly and lay them on a baking sheet. Place them in the freezer for several hours and then store them in a Ziploc freezer bag.

Wineberry Jelly & Homemade Biscuits

If you have ever made jelly using Certo pectin, then you are set. Follow the directions in the package for perfect jelly every time. All you need is sugar, berries, and pectin. Make some homemade biscuits and you are set for the perfect summer breakfast.

Have you ever picked wineberries? Got a favorite way to enjoy fresh berries from the farm? I’d love to hear your stories!
