In 2005, Mindi Miller purchased property on Kiger Island where she grows Northern Highbush Blueberries using sustainable farming practices. All fruit is handpicked at peak ripeness, packaged and delivered to the stores within 24 hours. This process is extremely labor intensive but offers the freshest results.
Northern Highbush Blueberries are bred to produce fruit throughout the summer. Early season brings Dukes, followed by Bluecrop, and late in the season, Elliot. Each berry is unique in flavor, but delicious, ample sized and perfect for the fresh market.
Mindi’s six and a half acre property is home to more than 10,000 plants, still young but fully productive and professionally pruned. She is always happy to offer advice to home gardeners when asked.
