Blueberry Hill Farm….. A great deal has changed since Fred and Melinde Leport (my mom and dad), bought the property in 1996. Dad and Mom planted roughly 1000 Northern Highbush blueberries, asparagus- both green and delicious purple, a small apple-peach-pear orchard, and a few bee hives.
Today we reap buckets of blueberries and have a U-Pick available. Our asparagus planting has tripled and does quite well. Through trial and error and pesky weather we have
5 make that 2 bee hives with a desire for several more coming next spring. Local, unadulterated honey is absolutely the best! If you didn’t get any of our honey this year you missed out! It was terrific!!
My family has taken over the daily running of Blueberry Hill Farm, I am their daughter Kristi. My husband Alan & I, and sons Moses & Aaron love farm life. Guess what? In December of 2012, we were able to purchase the farm!
Desiring to stay busy year round we’ve added brown-egg laying chickens, Nubian dairy goats. We have had turkeys, meat chickens and loads more egg layers in the past. However, desiring to put attention out there in so many directions we found it hard to do them all REALLY WELL. So, its back to a more simpler time… for now. Our sons are growing up quickly and are more interested and able in helping out.
People ask us if there were any other reasons for slowing down…In response: feed costs, time concerns and other matters, we pulled in the reins of growth. We are not trying pumpkins any longer- 5/100 just isn’t a good ratio. We love having our own fresh chickens for meat, but the cost of feed, insurance and processing- not too mention the marketing got to be too much.We just don’t feel you should have to mortgage your home to put healthy food on the table.
Blueberry Hill Farm will always remain pesticide free. This means that you can eat the berries right from the bush and asparagus straight out of the dirt.*
Our goal is always to have clean, fresh food… ”Nothing tastes better than Fresh.
