The Pacific Northwest is a great place to grow blueberries. Because of our hot dry weather, many of the diseases and pest problems that blueberries encounter are not as prevalent as in other areas that are known for growing blueberries. This means that less chemicals and additives are needed to provide a delicious crop of berries each year. Crimson Acres is a certified organic farm, and all the organic guidelines are strictly followed. This ensures that none of the blueberries you have picked have been sprayed with a non-organic pesticide or herbicide. They are safe to eat straight from the bush! We use management tools such as hand weeding, mowing, and mulching to lessen the amount of any sprays needed.
Further we use fertigation to fertilize our farm, this means that all the organic fertilizer/nutrients applied to the plants is done through the ground irrigation again ensuring that none of the fertilizer comes in contact with the berries you take home!
