The Blueberry Farm is located in the northwest corner of Georgia.  While picking some of the best blueberries in the area you can also enjoy the beauty of the countryside.

There is much Civil War history in Walker County.  When you visit the farm, be sure you take time to see many of the historical landmarks in our county.  The Chickamauga & Chattanooga National Military Park is as close as you can get to the Civil War without actually living in the 1800s.  The Blueberry Farm is only about 15 miles from the National Military Park.

The farm consists of two blueberry fields and one small vineyard.  During the season, these fruits are available for u-pick customers.  We have about 1,000 large southern rabbiteye blueberry plants and about 50 muscadine plants.

Blueberry Terminology:

Vaccinium is the family of all blueberries and includes more than 450 plants.  This plant grows wild around the world and there are many names given to different blueberries. For practical and commercial purposes we concentrate on three different varieties:

  • V. corymbosum. (Northern Highbush) Grow in the forests wild in North America and were used to cultivate the modern highbush or cultivated blueberry industry along with the V. Ashei. (Botanical information)
  • V. ashei. (Southern Rabbiteye). These blueberries thrive in the Southern USA.  A variety called the Rabbiteye is named this because the calyx on the berry resembles the eye of the rabbit! (Botanical Information)
  • V. angustifolium. (Lowbush or also called “Wild blueberries.”). These dwarf bushes are very cold hardy, surviving in the wild as far north as Arctic North America. These Blueberries only reach a height of 1 or 2 feet. and include the low sweet Blueberry (V. angustifolium), which is found from the Arctic to Minnesota and the mountains of New York and New Hampshire, and the sour-tasting velvet-leaf Blueberry (V. myrtilloides), which is found wild throughout New England and west.
