Maine Wild Blueberries

Every year one billion pounds of blueberries are produced worldwide, 100 million of which are Maine wild blueberries. If you’ve ever had Maine wild blueberries you already know they are very different from the larger cultivated variety most people are familiar with. They are smaller in size, richer in flavor, and have been reported to contain double the antioxidants of cultivated blueberries. This year, between new trade tariffs, a weaker Canadian dollar, and a growing production worldwide the wild blueberry farmers of Maine have been advised to leave some of their fields unharvested to help steam the falling prices of wild blueberries.
