Blueberry Crumble and Betty's Berry farm in Wilmer Alabama

After picking six pounds of Locally fresh Blueberry's on my visit to Mobile, Alabama. I decided to make my yearly Blueberry crumble. The Blueberry's are from Betty’s Berry Farm in Tanner Williams Alabama. Betty’s Berry Farm has been open 21 years providing high quality, healthy blueberries.


1 pkg. frozen or 3 c. blueberries

2 tbsp. lemon juice

2/3 c. packed brown sugar

1/2 c. flour

2/3 c. quick oats

1/3 c. butter

3/4 tsp. cinnamon

1/4 tsp. salt

Spread blueberries in square baking dish, 8 x 8 x 2 inches. Sprinkle with lemon juice. Mix remaining ingredients, sprinkle over berries.

Heat oven to 375 degrees. Bake about 40 minutes or until topping is light brown and berries are hot. Serve warm with cream or ice cream.

Betty Wilson and her husband Jack have spent the past 25 years operating Betty's Berry Farm on Driskell Loop Road in Wilmer, Alabama. The experience of picking your own blueberries is surpassed only by the bounty of blueberries you can bring home for next to nothing. Betty charges only $1.50 per pound. Betty's husbands hobbies are antique cars. 

The Wilsons have about seven acres of blueberries and about 3,000 bushes, which they planted themselves. They started with the original 21 rows and about 5 years ago added another 10 rows at the rear of the property. Betty's offers 10 different varieties of blueberries and sell between 6,000 ad 8,000 pounds of blueberries.
