Blueberry Farms?

Are there any blueberry farms that didn't lose their crop to the Easter freeze or the drought?

I know there is one out in Craig County - a friend brought fresh picked blueberries to work last week.

If Craig Co. isn't too far, I can get more details for you.

RE: Blueberry Farms?

The bushes in my garden weren't bothered by the cold snap and I'm buried in blueberries. Have you been seeing places that have lost their crops?

RE: Blueberry Farms?

Meg, I didn't know where Craig Co was but found it on a map. I am in Grayson Co. so Craig isn't that close. Give me the details anyway, please:-)

Leslies, Yes, it seems that all the blueberries were lost in our area, and in surrounding areas of NC and TN. We have a few on our bushes maybe a couple of gallons. DH's aunt has maybe 10 gallons instead of 100s. Last year we picked and canned 11 gallons and were hoping to do about twice that this summer.

I've been looking at and it seems that N VA has some blueberries but they seem expensive compared to what I'm used to paying around here plus gas money would have to be figured in.
