A Blueberry Farm


About Us
Originally, we planted a blueberry patch to supplement the family menu. Soon, the bushes were producing enough to supply the neighborhood. After a fire burned several acres of pine trees, we replanted a half acre with blueberries. This was the start of A Blueberry Farm.

A Blueberry farm is run by John Boaze along with the assistance of his wife, children and grandchildren. The bushes are located beside the family's business office, providing colorfull foliage throughout the year as well as summer snacks for the office staff.

Approximately 150 adult bushes provide the majority of the crop, with younger bushes in various stages of development also producing. There are nine varities of blueberries on the farm, ripening from late June through to frost. The farm is primarily a U-Pick field, but orders are taken and filled for those who are not able to pick for themselves.
