organic blueberries

There was, a few years back, a blueberry grower at km 106 on the IB where we went and picked buckets of blueberries. Then there were a series of untoward events with the
(German?) owner and it doesn't seem to be open anymore?

Does anyone know of an organic blueberry grower where you can pick bundles of blueberries yourself?
does anyone know what is happening with those bushes at the km 106 arandanos farm?

November is blueberry month!!

Last years crop was dismal and they did not do well. The rent is always due regardless of the crop outcome. A few months ago Lucia told me that she was very concerned about the viability of the biz.

Blueberries ready to pick at Pilar´s Chacra. SATURDAYS. 8:00-11:30
PRICE: Unknown (was 180 pesos per kilo last year)
Picking will continue every Saturday 8 to 11:30, as long as the berry season lasts.
BRING YOUR OWN CONTAINERS OR BAGS TO TAKE BERRIES HOME.
(Pilar´s chacra - from the Interbalnearia cross-over at Atlántida, drive north (inland) on Ruta 11 for 6.5 km. You will see a metal windmill to your left. Take the next road to the right. The first driveway to the left off this road, through the big open gates, is the chacra.)

I just bought some frozen blueberries from Lucia at the IB km 106 berry farm. This years crop was good unlike last years which is great news. Lucia told me that they have signed a 5 year lease for the blueberry farm so there should be luscious fruit for years to come. We are going to stock up our freezer as we love blueberries. Because the UTE bill for running a large walk-in freezer is huge, she would like to sell out her product asap. Just because the gate is closed does not mean she is not selling berries, just call her cell phone (the number is on the gate and in another post in this thread) and she will sell berries. She also makes some good jam and a very spicy blueberry chutney, but those may be made later when she empties the walk-in. Wonderful berries, wonderful people, please support them.

Papajohn, I paid 350 pesos/kg for fat lovely frozen fruit. I ate as many as I could driving back to the chacra and barely avoided brain freeze on multiple occasions :-)

I just got back to the farm with 6 kg of frozen certified organic blueberries. Lucía (mentioned in my above post) is currently charging 1000 pesos for 3 kg. This was a bumper crop year and she has a lot of quality blueberries as the temporada did not go that well this year. They're very nice people and deserving of support and she just had her second child 40 days ago :-)
