Lingonberries are coming

A new bed of Lingonberries was recently planted here at Lightfoot Farm. In a few years they will start producing berries to make jam and jelly. Dr. Oz recently placed lingonberries on the same level as blueberries for their healthful benefits. This is due to the antioxidants they contain, including quercetin. Lingonberries are commonly used in Scandina ian countries and look similar to cranberries.
 
Cones have been placed over some plants to prevent sunburn, to protect them from frost and foraging animals and to help them acclimate to Vermont, as they were shipped from the west coast. Some plants have been protected from animals with netting. Orchard management here at Lightfoot Farm is labor intensive.
