Serious about blueberries

Meet IMA Blueberry, Oregon’s blueberry ambassador. You can catch her at local farmers’ markets bopping around, and was seen recently in Eugene at the Lane County Farmers’ Market. In a state that takes blueberries so seriously, it’s no wonder it had to call in a mascot. Oregon produced more than 134 million pounds of blueberries last year, the most in the nation. That number is expected to increase this year.
