Out in Blue Fields: A Year at Hokum Rock Blueberry Farm by Janice Riley




This book is filled with everything Blueberry. It has tons of stunning pictures. Yes stunning and blueberries do not always go together when speaking of photos but in this case they do. There are pictures of the flowers before the berry forms, there are pictures of the bushes covered in snow, and there are pictures of the farm with the amazing backdrop of the forest behind it.

The book chronicles a year of cultivating blueberries on Cape Cod's Hokum Rock Farm. Stephen Spear's family has owned the Hokum Rock Farm since 1973 and began cultivating blueberries exclusively in 1986, selling thousands of pints each season.

Along with the photos is the history of cultivation, an autobiography, thoughts, feelings, and so much more. You get an in depth look at the family and of blueberries, and my favorite part recipes.

I received this book from the Author or Publisher via Netgalley.com to read and review.
