Blueberries, From Our Farm to your Freezer

Blueberries are some of our favorites here at Stahlbush, they’re deliciously tangy, good for you, and can be used in countless ways. Our blueberries start here, at our picturesque blueberry fields in Corvallis, Oregon. We harvest them with care at the height of their ripeness, and freeze them right away to ensure their natural flavor and freshness is preserved. Afterwards, our blueberries are brought to stores near you in the freezer section, ready to be used in smoothies, bread, pancakes, scones, and more. Here are some of our tried-and-true recipes featuring blueberries:
