Friends Drift Inn Farm Recipes – Blueberries

Fresh Blueberries make the best scones!

Update 2016: Friends Drift Inn Farm planted dozen of three year old blueberry bushes in 2015. We have high hopes for a harvest in the summer of 2016.

Fresh Blueberries The Secret to Breakfast Scones

Blueberries are a summertime favorite here at the big red barn. We have neighbors with bushes, who are gracious to share. I have friends that intercept the blueberry supply at the Farmers Market enabling my “habit.”

Blueberries are particularly well suited to growing here in the mountains. This fall, Charlie and I are adding a few to the garden; as soon as we figure out how to add a structure to support bird netting. When it comes to blueberries, I am not interested in sharing with our feathered friends!

Blueberry Scones with farm fresh blueberries!

This weekend, we headed over to Abingdon Virginia to visit their Farmers Market, one of the best in our region. There were nearly 50 vendors, with several bakers in the mix. I especially liked the light blueberry scones!

At the Farmers Market they offered a lavender cold tea which was divine with the blueberry scones! Serve these soft brunch delights after the morning garden workout! Giggles and Cheers!
