Get your fresh Blueberries today!

Thea Kincaid of Thea’s Ideas and I enjoyed our visit to Morris Brothers Blueberry Farm in Bridgeton, NC!

Morris Bros. Blueberry Farm is a family owned by brothers, Jason and Fenner Morris, for over 60 years.

You can eat the blueberries right off the bush! We also learned that “blueberries are a good source of vitamin C; have only 45 calories per half cup; and are low in sodium”.

Tips to keep and freeze your Blueberries from Morris Blueberry Farm:
- Keep under refrigeration until ready to use. Blueberries will continue to ripen if left at room temperature, therefore, it is necessary to use, refrigerate, or freeze them within a few days of picking to avoid over ripening.
- Blueberries can be refrigerated for approximately 7 days.
- To freeze blueberries, simply put them in an airtight container (i.e. Ziploc Freezer bag) and freeze. DO NOT WASH PRIOR TO FREEZING!!! When ready to use frozen blueberries, remove the quantity you will need, rinse, and prepare as recipe directs.
- Blueberries keep nicely in freezer for up to 12 months.

They are open seven days a week from 7am – 6pm thru July 4th. If you’re going to pick your own, they recommend coming early in the morning or in the late afternoon due to the high temperatures.

Save money by picking your own blueberries or purchase a pre-packaged pint. You can even buy a case!

Visit Morris Blueberry Farm TODAY and pick your own or purchase already packaged blueberries!

They are located on Hwy 17 N on the left as you cross the Neuse River Bridge into Bridgeton. Please give them a call if you have any questions at 252-637-6630.

Special thanks to Lindsey and Jane Purser for the fun tour! Lindsey did a terrific job answering Thea Kincaid’s questions!

About New Bern Now
Editor-in-Chief, Wendy Card, founded New Bern Now in April 2009. There were a number of reasons she developed the website. While stationed in Washington DC, she had 30 days to transfer to Naval Hospital Cherry Point and didn’t know much about the area. She was frustrated because there wasn’t a central location on the Internet for information about New Bern. Wendy retired from the Navy in Oct 2007. When our economy dived, she was trying to find her way in life and decided to give back to the community by creating a website that provided a “One Stop, Information Shop” to help people find out what’s happening in our community along with creating a free business listing to help business owners who couldn’t afford to advertise.
