How to look after your berries
After leaving the orchard make sure you keep your berries in the coolest part of your car, the floor is always a good place.
Once you get home, if you are not eating your delicious berries immediately store them in the fridge, they will keep better and last for longer.
When serving your berries, ideally it is best to take them out of the fridge an hour before serving and eat them at room temperature. This ensures you’ll get the best possible taste.
