Visiting Wyman’s of Maine

In June, I was given the opportunity to check something off my bucket list: Prince Edward Island. When invited by Wyman’s of Maine to attend their Honeybee Summit, I did a little dance in the privacy of my own home, then composed myself and professionally responded that I would be more than happy to attend. Along with a group of other bloggers, we stayed at the most amazing Inn At Bay Fortune, ate the most incredible food, and were treated so graciously by the most genuine people I have ever met.

In between basking in nature’s beauty, and experiencing the delicious food PEI has to offer, I learned a little more about wild blueberries and honeybees. We were given the opportunity to tour Wyman’s wild blueberry factory. I’ve always been a fan of watching how things work, so this was my jam, people. (Pun intended)

Wyman’s has a short period of time to get there wild blueberries picked and packaged. The whole process is genius. From the way they pick, to the way they sort and flash freeze – all within 24 hours, and nothing goes to waste. These little babies will taste as fresh as the day they were picked!

And then we met the bees.

Was I brave, and removed one of my gloves so I could take these pics for ya’ll to see?

Yes. Yes, I was.

Honey & Blueberry FAQs

  • Wild blueberries have a brighter color due to the fact that they have twice the antioxidants as the cultivated blueberries. They pack a lot into a little body. (They’re like the Danny DeVito of the blueberry world.)
  • Wild blueberries are rich in potassium, vitamin C, folic acid, and dietary fiber. My favorite is fiber since it satisfies hunger with fewer calories. #SwimsuitSeason
  • Honey bees are responsible for pollinating one-third of our nation’s produce. No bees? No berries. You can read more about what Wyman’s is trying to do about that here.
  • Wyman’s owns and manages 1,400 hives on Prince Edward Island with a resident apiarist. Which inspired this Blueberry Honey Butter recipe:

How To Make Blueberry Honey Butter

Add Some Heat – Put the blueberries, honey and lemon juice into a saucepan and bring everything to a boil over medium heat.  Once it becomes a deep purple color you’ll know it’s ready.

Chill Out – Remove the blueberry mixture from the stove and allow it to cool.

Blend – Using a standard blender, combine the mixture with the butter.  You’ll want to blend everything until it is nice and smooth.

Serve – I love to spread this blueberry honey butter on a warm piece of toast in the morning.  It also goes great on pancakes, waffles, English muffins and anything else you can think of!

Wyman’s of Maine was so kind to sponsor my trip to PEI, however I was not compensated for this recipe + free printable post. All opinions and thoughts are my own.
