Saturday afternoon I took the children blueberry picking at an organic property ~ Blueberry Farm in the beautiful Akatarawa Valley.
It was super hot and hard work, but the children did well picking nearly a bucket full of small sweet blueberries.
The property has access to the river so afterwards we were rewarded with a lovely swim in the river.
A beautiful place to visit with very friendly owners. Take your swim gear, unfortunately don't rely on the cafe to be open, but they are happy for you to bring along a picnic with you.

P.S. We made blueberry ice-cream and blueberry pancakes ~ so good!
