Raspberry Nutritional Information and Handling

Picking and Storing Raspberries

  • Whether picking raspberries from our fields or buying ready picked from our farm market, be sure you’re picking berries that are firm and evenly coloured. 
  • When you bring your berries home remove any berries that look darker in colour or mushy – these should be eaten or preserved right away. 
  • Do not wash your berries, to keep them fresher longer it’s best to leave them unwashed. 
  • Line an airtight container with a paper towel at the bottom and place your berries loosely over top. Seal your contain and store in the fridge.

How to Freeze Raspberries

  • Place raspberries evenly on a parchement lined baking sheet, ensuring they are not touching. Freeze for 30-60 minutes.
  • Once frozen, place raspberries into freezer bag for easy storage. Enjoy your frozen berries for up to a year – until the next raspberry season!

*TIP: Do not wash your raspberries before freezing. They will fill with water and turn mushy.
