Michigan blueberries are still in their prime season and are available by the pint and in 10 pound boxes - so tasty and sweet. These babies can't get enough of them. We're at the tail-end of the Michigan cherries. We have other delicious vegetables available now too: red, yellow, and green tomatoes, sweet peppers, zucchini, cucumbers, green beans, new potatoes, and more.

It’s strawberry season πŸ“ While eating our way through the Hilger Family Farm strawberry patch, we still managed to pick a ton of strawberries. My granny used to make the best freezer strawberry jam. So I tried my first batch of jam and it turned out great! Pure sugar with a splash of strawberries, can’t go wrong! Have you been? #strawberries #strawberrypicking #strawberrypatch #fortwayne #summervibes #summerbucketlist #summertime #summerwithkids #atuesdaypost #summer2022 #familybucketlist

What day will the strawberries be ready?
The strawberry season is coming in June to Hilger Family Farm! (Be sure to check with the farm before you go for the exact dates). My recommendation is, the strawberry season is so brief and a fresh picked strawberry is so good, don't miss it! This June, after getting delicious fresh strawberries at Hilger's, for great, easy to follow recipes to make jam, strawberry pie, or freeze the strawberries you get, see these pages (below). Be sure to pick a few extra quarts to freeze for later, for smoothies in the winter, or make jam later!
