"Blueberry Acres” is owned by the Nova Agri Group of Companies and dates back to 1959/1960. The farm began as a feasibility trial initiated by the Federal Government to test commercial growing of highbush blueberries in Atlantic Canada.
Blueberry Acres has increased in size from the 60 acres first planted in Sheffield Mills for the trial to three locations totalling over 140 acres (and is still expanding). Over 30 varieties are grown on the farm with new ones being added to meet growing demand. Highbush blueberries grow in a range of sizes with the smallest being the size of a wild blueberry to the largest the size of a loonie. Each has a unique flavour varying from slightly tart to sweet depending on variety. Our bushes are hand pruned and the fruit hand harvested to yield the best quality berry. Our plants range form 1 to 45 years old, producing over a million pounds of blueberries a year. Fresh fruit is available from the end of July to mid-October (depending on pollination and weather conditions). Experience for yourself the joys of fresh highbush blueberries. Join us at Blueberry Acres U-pick where you can pick exactly the amount you want. Our Chef takes advantage of the restaurant’s location and uses fresh, local ingredients when available.
