We invite you to come and enjoy a quiet, relaxing wonderful day in the Northwest Florida countryside with us. You can sit, swing and drink some tea at the berry shed, or you can recline and read a book while your friends or family members pick your berries for you. If you are the adventurous type, you can stroll up and down the rows amongst the berries and the Sunflowers and try your hand at filling one of the yellow buckets with delicious Blueberries.
Our usual picking season runs from mid-May until the middle of July. We offer Southern Highbush and Rabbiteye varieties.
You will find two types of blueberry plants in our field, the Southern Highbush and Rabbiteye.
Highbush blueberries are probably the most familiar variety because this is the most commonly sold in your grocery store’s produce department. They derive their name from their growth pattern, as these bushes are quite tall, sometime reaching over six feet high. They are popular because of the larger fruits, sometimes over an inch. These plants ripen 4 to 6 weeks earlier than the rabbiteye type.
Rabbiteye blueberries , are much more suited to the southern climates, and are native to the Southeast. The name is deceiving since they grow taller than even the highbush blueberries, certainly higher than a rabbit’s eye growing as high as 10-feet.
