Our blackberries are grown in the heat of Guatemala and Spain to create a truly sweet and delicious berry. This rich, dark fruit is a true superfood and powerhouse of vitamins A, B, C and E, calcium, fibre and iron. What a great way to enjoy your five or more a day!

For us, there’s no better way to start a day on the farm than to pack our juicy blackberries into a smoothie.

Care and Handling

  • For maximum freshness, please keep your blackberries refrigerated after purchase and away from sources of moisture and direct sunlight, however the berries should be washed just before eating.
  • To enjoy the full flavour, it is best to let the berries warm to room temperature.
  • For home freezing, gently wash the berries in cold water and pat dry with paper. Spread the berries out in a single layer on a tray and place in the freezer. Once frozen, the berries can be tipped into airtight containers before returning to the freezer.
