Pride can't begin to communicate our passion.
To say we are proud of the family farm is an understatement. In 1988, we bought the farm which was very run down and not in production for blueberries. At that time we had 10 acres in blueberry fields. We built our home, shop, and barn. We cleared our blueberry fields and brought them back into production one rock, one bush, one cluster of berries at a time. In 1994 we bought the neighboring farm which consisted of approximately 50 acres that were already in production. Today, after many years of hard work removing rock and leveling the land, we are harvesting over 100 acres of productive blueberry grounds each season.
It's a family affair.
Each season, our whole family joins in the blueberry harvesting process. Our son lives on the far end of the farm and helps with year round maintenance as well as seasonal harvesting. Our daughter, who lives in mid Maine, also joins our team in August. We have grandkids, some as young as two years old, who are running around with blue mouths and fists full of berries. Daryn, our oldest grandson, started out at a tender young age with his little rake. Now as a young man, he is a very important part of the operation. Our family also employs 15 seasonal workers who have been harvesting with us for over 10 years. Long days are spent in the field, lugging boxes of berries and standing in the fresh pack processing line, but we wouldn't change it for the world.
