Raspberry and blackberry growers and marketers have worked hard to bring their berries to market despite the challenges of the coronavirus pandemic. As one grower remarked this spring, “Every day there’s something we have to figure out that we don’t normally have to do.”
Eat more berries! If you are a consumer, we encourage you to make raspberries and blackberries part of your diet even more! They are nutritional powerhouses — and a delight to taste and to see.
