APTOPIX Food and Farm Maine Blueberries

In this Friday, Aug. 24, 2018, photo, a worker rakes wild blueberries at a farm in Union, Maine. Blueberries are touted by health food bloggers and natural food stores because of their hefty dose of antioxidants and ability to be used in smoothies and juices. But the industry that picks and sells them is dealing with a long-term price drop, drought, freezes, diseases and foreign competition, and farmers are looking at a second consecutive year of reduced crop size.
