Blueberry

Blueberries have become firmly established in Poland and after gaining popularity in recent years.  Originating in North America blueberry bushes grow up to 2 metres tall and can live for 20-30 years and can bear fruit the second year after planting and bloom in the second half of May for 3 weeks. The blueberries ripen from early July to late September, depending on the variety.

The Properties of Blueberries

Blueberries are valued around the world, not only for flavour, but also for their nutritional and health benefits. Their properties are important in the prevention of lifestyle diseases, such as cancer and heart disease. Rich in vitamins A, C, E, B, sugars, minerals and fibre they can be used for detoxification, having a positive effect on bowel function and cardiovascular health. Due to the high content of antioxidants (which is several times higher than that carrots) they can also improve vision.

The blueberry plant has specific requirements in terms of climate and soil. It requires very permeable soils, which have humus and are both humid and strongly acidic. A temperate climate is conducive to the cultivation of blueberries and they can be grown throughout the country. Blueberries, also known as Cyanococcus, are not very susceptible to freezing. Fruit shrubs can tolerate winters and withstand temperatures down to minus 25 °C.

About us

Family Owned Blueberry Farm

We are a family business specializing in fruit growing, working in blueberry cultivation.  We have been growing blueberry seedlings and shrubs in different varieties since 1998.

The plantation area consists of 6 hectares planted with two varieties of blueberries, Bluecrop (80%) and Spartan (20%). In 2007, we planted 3.5 hectares of land with the same blueberry varieties and in 2009 we extended the area planted by another 3.5 hectares, with the blueberry varieties: Elizabeth, Brigitta and Chandler.  In 2014, the total area planted was in excess of 25 hectares.

Blueberry Farming

We are deeply committed to plant cultivation and the production of quality fruit.  As a result of our stringent quality control methods, the blueberries produced are delicious and have a light blue coating.  The blueberries are also easy to transport and store.

As a result of knowledge gained during the time spent working with blueberries, we have developed an interest in the popular berry Kamchatka. In 2015 we planted 3 hectares of this attractive fruit, in Wojtek and Zojka varieties.

Business Development

Our experience in the cultivation of blueberries is very extensive. We are keen to share this experience with other growers.  We are happy to share our knowledge about the cultivation and practice of blueberry production.

We can provide advice on how to set up a blueberry plantation from the very first steps, growing techniques, the elimination of pests, appropriate fertilization, pruning and all other important aspects required to successfully grow blueberries. We also offer able to provide advice how to obtain grants or participate in EU projects, including on bid applications, in order to obtain the funding necessary to develop a fruit farm. Although blueberries will always be our main passion, we are also focused on continued development.

We invite you to learn more about our blueberries and the services we can offer.
