Hello Blueberry Friends,
We are working to ready the berries for a July 5th (hopefully) opening. It was a very challenging winter. We hit a low of -39° F . There were many false starts this spring, with temperatures changing back and forth from hot to cold. The berries don't appreciate this and believe it's time to start if we hit five days in 70° F weather. We also had more than five days of frost in early May, which can compromise pollination success.
Despite all this, it appears we will have a bountiful berry harvest! This is in a large part due to the good work of pollinators, specifically the sweet honey bees of Jenny Bouthilet, the hardworking mason bees of Bee to Bloom, and the 1600 bumblebees we brought on board for pollination this year.
As with last year, our blueberries are not "officially" organic. We do, however, follow the exact same practices as when we were organically certified back in 2019. Our blueberries are grown "naturally", and no synthetic pesticides, insecticides or fertilizers are used at Blueberry Fields of Stillwater. The following list details what products and processes we use on our fields to safeguard and protect our blueberries for you to enjoy:
We are so excited to welcome you back to fields for the 2021 season! Please check back for more updates. We will be giving periodic updates leading up to the season opening and, once we are open, we will be giving daily updates. We are trying to work through difficulties with updating our Facebook, so look to our website first for updated information.
