The organic Maine wild blueberries from Burke Hill Farm are finally in! But maybe only for this week. Maine wild blueberries are the best kind of blueberries and one of the true highlights of summer in New England. They’re not like the ones you find at the supermarket. They’re smaller and have an intense flavor. They’re amazing and great for baking, making smoothies or sprinkling on your breakfast cereal.
