Blueberry Season on the Farm
It’s finally blueberry season on our farm in Kentucky!
We own a blueberry farm in southern Kentucky and the berries are getting ripe. Pretty soon I’ll be up to my eye balls in berries! When you go to the store and see a box of blueberries please remember the vast amount of work it takes to get those little blue gems to market!
My grandchildren love them (some more than others) and today I’m sharing a video of my 4 year old granddaughter eating some. She calls them brewberries but I couldn’t get her to speak loud enough for you to hear her very well. This clip is only 31 seconds…I know you are busy!
Why blueberries are so good for you…
One of the things they do is help prevent cancer. Vitamin C, vitamin A, and various phytonutrients in blueberries function as powerful antioxidants that help protect cells against free radical damage. They inhibit tumor growth, decrease inflammation in the body and help ward off or slow several types of cancer, including esophageal, lung, mouth, pharynx, endometrial, pancreatic, prostate and colon.1
Blueberries also contain folate, which plays a role in DNA synthesis and repair, thus preventing the formation of cancer cells from mutations in the DNA.1
