Love Blueberries?



About us

Hi there! I’m Dorothy and I planted my first blueberry bush in Minnesota in 1999. By 2005 I had a blueberry farm with 600 blueberry plants that were producing about 300 pounds each week from mid-July through late August. That’s a whole lot of blueberries!!

The farmers markets allowed me to get up close and personal with people that just wanted to grow a few blueberries but were intimidated by what they had heard about them being so hard to grow. 

That experience with the public has helped me understand what holds people back from growing these delectable, healthy gems and I hope I can share my experience in a way that helps you enjoy both growing and cooking blueberries.
