THis mess is ours
Summer is in full swing, and there's no better way to cool down on a hot day than with a refreshing glass of Blueberry Lemonade. California-grown blueberries are the perfect way to add a bit of both sweet and tart flavor to the most classic summertime drink, lemonade, all while lending their vibrant color to the mix.
California is renowned for its stunning natural beauty, from its sun-kissed beaches to its majestic redwoods. However, the bounty of the Golden State's agricultural harvest is equally impressive. Recently, I visited Fairfield Farms a beautiful blueberry and avocado farm in Pauma Valley, San Diego County with my friends at California Grown.
Spencer Steed, a second-generation farmer, gave us a tour of the property, and let me tell you - it was a feast for the senses! From picking perfectly plump blueberries from the bushes to a tractor ride up a mountain to harvest avocados.
Fairfield Farms is committed to sustainable farming practices. They use solar power to reduce their energy consumption and drip irrigation to conserve water. They also practice crop rotation and use natural pest control methods to keep their crops healthy.
California's blueberries are nutrient powerhouses packed with antioxidants, fiber, and vitamins. But what truly sets them apart is their fresh, vibrant flavor, a testament to the ideal growing conditions and sustainable farming practices employed by California's farmers.

One of the highlights of our trip to Fairfield Farms was a picnic under the shade of a majestic tree on the property that was served with Blueberry Lemonade.
