No, the glaciers brought them here naturally. They are 1 of 4 commercially grown natural fruits in North America.
They grow them naturally.
After August, after the harvest, we wait until the first frost and mow to the ground. 70% of the plant is underground so you don’t damage the plant by mowing it to the ground. We call the first snow, The Poor Man’s Fertilizer. When they start to pop up in the spring, we feed them. Then they grow 8 to 10 inches by July. They turn bright red in the fall. Then that winter, we have buds. We count the buds. The following June, we get beautiful flowers. The bees pollinate the flowers. Then in August, we pick the blueberries. Then the cycle resumes.
After we burn the fields, we cover the fields in oat straw. The oat straw gets pushed down by the snow in the winter. This is an easy, safe, pesticide free way to kill off all the bugs that would eat at the plants as they grew back. This is the was the Native Americans did it when they lived here.
Wild blueberries, wild cranberries, wild raspberries, wild grapes (a relative to the concord grapes)
Prices vary on the harvest. The current price is $20 for a 5 pound box. There was a shortage due to severe drought this year. They are available year round frozen.
Yes but we only ship FEDEX overnight and it can be pricey. It’s better to come and get your blueberries fresh at the farm.
