Blueberries and Wildflowers

Our berries are grown 100% pesticide free, using naturally derived fertilizers and soil treatments. They are safe to eat – straight off the bush! 

Our Story

In 1994, Dr. Rick Smith moved his young family of six to a piece of undeveloped land in Saluda county. He and his wife, Sharon, had dreams of building a home and creating a family blueberry farm to serve the community of Leesville, South Carolina.

Having been raised on a fruit farm himself,  he realized that life on a farm would provide a healthy environment for the children, teaching them the importance of hard work, responsibility, and investment in the land. The number of children grew from four to six, and the farm grew from 75 bushes to 7000 bushes of multiple varieties. 

As the farm expanded, Dr. Smith developed comprehensive techniques for pesticide free crop management. He has always been committed to providing clean and safely grown blueberries to all of the farm’s customers. 

Today, the farm offers blueberries to u-pick customers throughout the picking season, as well as filling orders for pre-picked and cleaned berries by the gallon.
