Who doesn’t love blueberries? They’re delicious! Whether you’re eating them by the handful, putting them on your cereal, mixing them into your pancakes, or adding them to a fruit smoothie, there’s nothing else quite like them.
What’s more, they’re actually quite good for you. They are rich in antioxidants, so they protect your body’s cells. They’re also chock full of vitamin K, vitamin C, manganese, and dietary fiber. As all berries do, they have a relatively low glycemic index, so they’re an excellent choice as a sweet treat that won’t spike your blood sugar levels.
On the South Santiam River, slightly east of Lebanon, Oregon is a pastoral little slice of heaven known as Springbank Farm. This fertile land has been farmed since the 1800s, but these days, its principal crop is… blueberries!
