Bowerman Blueberries is a family business that's been running for over 60 years. They have up to 100 acres of blueberries, featuring 10 different varieties.

Don't let the name fool you, along with blueberries they also grow raspberries and strawberries.

If you're not in the mood to pick your own berries, you can always stop by the Bowerman Blueberries market. The market opens in June and stays open until the end of October.

At the market the sell a variety of locally grown, fresh picked fruits and vegetables.

For people with a sweet tooth, they sell berry smoothies made with the berries from the farm, mocha smoothies, and homemade blueberry donuts.

On Saturday, July 23, they will be hosting their Blueberry Harvest Celebration. From 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., there will be a bouncy house, face painting, a fire truck, and more. There will also be U-Pick blueberries, but that doesn't start until 9 a.m.
