Cogdell Berry Farm

Here in Georgia, blueberries are starting to give the peach more than a little competition. We visit the folks at Cogdell Berry Farm and start things off by listing the best ways to eat blueberries. And we finish with a few surprises. For example, Cogdell Berry Farm uses laser beams to help sort their blueberries.
