Having spent 7+ years of my life commuting into Plant City for grade school – you would think that I was full of knowledge on their range of berries. But… my facts were specific to a little red berry and I was happy to learn more about Wish Farms and their blueberries.
Since Wish Farms Southeast blueberries are now in season (Florida, Georgia & North Carolina), we headed 50 miles east of Tampa, just past Lakeland, to Misty Organics; the home of Wish Farms’ 20 acre organic blueberry farm. Science meets soil here – with seven different types of blueberries, their tunnels that house the blueberry plants and set up a specific way to harvest the most, and best little berries. Each tunnel has a black flooring to soak up the heat, but the only two colors your see are green speckled with blue. And you can even eat the blueberries right off of the stem.
After a morning in the sun, we headed to their Processing Facility in Plant City; we got to see first hand how the magic happens and the steps on how the blueberries travel from field to your table. While machines do help expedite the process, it is all hands on deck to ensure that only the best berries make into a Wish Farm container. And can you believe they can pack 3,500 to 5,000 pounds per hour?!
With all of this blueberry goodness, I was excited to create something new with one of my favorite things, and you know where this is heading…

While there is really no need to preface… I just love a good cocktail with tequila. After a day of mostly sweets with the blueberries, I wanted to give them a little *bite* but still showcase the full flavor of Wish Farms’ Blueberries. Plus, we just celebration National Margarita Day, so I did a little combining.
Introducing the GingerBlue Margarita :: simple, tangy, sweet & fresh. I first created a blueberry & ginger infused simple syrup, then combining it with your other liquids – voila! Scroll down for an easy, delicious recipe with fresh Wish Farms blueberries.
