The frigid weather is working to make our organic blueberry crop even sweeter and better for the coming harvest in the spring. These chill hours are just what our fruit needs to mature, ripen and be sweet and crisp.
Here at the Jubilee Orchards, we have been very busy this fall and winter expanding the Jubilee experience. When you come out in late March through early summer you will find these exciting new features. Beginning this spring, we'll be serving a scrumptious barbecue lunch featuring ribs and pulled pork with all the fixings cooked in our 19th-century smokehouse during u-pick events.
We'll also be introducing the Jubilee Farm Store utilizing our 1840's cookhouse cabin as the venue. In the store you will find a host of Jubilee Berry products; berry ice cream, berry snow cones for the kids, Jubilee berry cheeses, berry coffee, berry cheesecakes, muffins, pies, and tarts. Berry jams and jellies, and syrups and sauces.
You will also find fresh, organic, local fruits and vegetables from other Florida producers- heirloom tomatoes, strawberries, organic farm eggs, organic milk and creamery products, nuts, lettuces, onions, blackberries, and much more. The Jubilee Farm Store will feature recipes, books on organic foods, aprons, clothing, leather goods- all made in Florida by local producers.
We've got some great additions for the kids too! This spring, kids will enjoy new adventures at the farm U-Picks with kid train rides pulled by a tractor, clowns, and ponies, and special events.
All the berries at Jubilee Orchards will be certified organic or organically grown in 2018. No pesticides, herbicides or fungicides or any additives that are not organically approved will ever be applied. Be assured that our fruit is not only fresh but also the most healthy and nutritious.
Watch for special events throughout the year. Events like orchard dinners prepared by the best regional chefs, and holiday events like our fall Jubilee with a haunted barn at Halloween. During the holidays, we'll be putting on a a Christmas Show and Jubilee Orchards will lit up with festive lights!
