The 50-year-old blueberry farm is set in the beautiful Kankakee Sands, a unique and relaxing place to spend time picking blueberries and enjoying nature.
No chemicals are used on the farm - no fertilizers, pesticides, or herbicides.
The farm is a community development initiative to provide jobs and revenue to this economically depressed rural community in east central Illinois.
We expect to start picking blueberries about July 1st. The annual Blueberry Festival will be Saturday, July 20, 2019.
Blueberries are a super food with high levels of antioxidants. Blueberry plants thrive naturally in the sandy Pembroke soil with abundant organic matter.
Profits support the local Rehoboth Mennonite Church and economic development of the community.
Blueberry harvest runs from the early July through early August. Get extra for drying, canning, or freezing to enjoy later.
