ABOUT REHOBOTH BLUEBERRY FARM
The Kankakee Dunes, created by receding glaciers, and the black oak savanna that thrives in the dunes, have created the perfect conditions for local, natural blueberries.
Rehoboth Blueberry Farm is a 60-year-old farm where visitors, volunteers and community members get to spend their time picking blueberries and enjoying nature.
Enjoy healthy blueberries that are grown without chemicals (fertilizers, pesticides, or herbicides) and without long-distance shipping.
Rehoboth Blueberry Farm is a ministry of Rehoboth Mennonite Church. The farm is a community development initiative to provide jobs and revenue to this economically depressed rural community in east central Illinois, specifically in Pembroke Township and Hopkins Park, Illinois.
Land Acknowledgement Statement
We acknowledge that where we gather is upon the ancestral land of the indigenous people of the Council of Three Fires [Potawatomi, Odawa, and Ojibwe Nations], and African-Americans escaping the brutalities of the Slave Trade and Jim Crow South. We share gratitude for this land and commit to steward this land as a legacy for our generations to come.
$3 pint and $24 gallon
Blueberry harvest runs from the early July through early August. Get extra for drying, canning, or freezing to enjoy later.
