BLUEBERRY PIE – THAT’S SOMETHING WE CAN ALL CELEBRATE!

You won’t find any locally grown sparklers in The Shed, but we do have sweet, juicy blueberries straight from the fields of Quitman, TX. While many of the fruits we enjoy today were introduced from other regions, blueberries are native to North America. These blue beauties are a truly American delight! As we celebrate our community in the land that we love, we can go the extra mile by supporting local agriculture. The blueberries in The Shed have travelled only 87 miles from field to market. Compared to the national average of 1,500 miles traveled for fresh produce, we think these blueberries are one sweet choice! Not only will these berries last much longer, but the flavor is unbeatable for baking and snacking. Be sure to buy 2 pints – one for the 4th of July party, and another for snacking on the way home!
