I just love Spring and Summer. I love being outside with the kids, late nights at the pool, the grill, and of course the produce! I also love U-Picks. We go every year to as many U-Picks as I can possibly find, blueberry, cherry, peach, and apple to name a few. This year we will be hitting a few more on our summer road trip up the coast.
This year I was so excited to find out about a new Organic U-pick opening up. Last year I made Blueberry Crumble Cookies using Fairfield Farms‘ blueberries but had no idea that their farm was located within an hour of me!!! This is their first year opening up a U-Pick. If you live in the area, I highly recommend visiting this family farm. Not only are the blueberry fantastic and organic, they are easily accessible to the little pickers. As you can see, my son decided to cement himself in front of one bush and eat nearly all of the blueberries, green and all, off the bush. Their U-Pick will be open until June 1st, 2014 and their organic blueberries are $5 a pint. For more information, visit their website here.
These pies were quick and simple. The lavender sugar really made these pies different from regular pies. If lavender is not your thing, just omit it, but these pies are still totally worth making!
I thought I would share this quick video I made for our out of town family. They like to see what is going on with the kiddos and in the kitchen!
