DiMeo’s Grow Blueberries with Passion
At DiMeo Farms and Blueberry Plants Nursery, we love what we do. Selling way better tasting NJ blueberries and BIG bearing-size blueberry bushes direct to gardeners all across America. DiMeo’s work hard on the farm every day. Most of them, well into their 80s and 90s. Farmer Joseph DiMeo lived until he was almost 101 years old. His aunt Concetta also lived to 101 years old, and her sister Nancy DiMeo (great-grandmom DiMeo) lived until 98 years old. Most of them worked well into their 90s and they never really retired. Below is now 90 year-old, third generation DiMeo blueberry farmer M. DiMeo, Sr. who checks blueberry pint as the filled pints fly out of the hopper to get labeled by the blueberry packing machine, co-owned by fourth generation blueberry farmer, A. DiMeo at the Wharton Packing house in Hammonton. Mike, Sr. has always had so much energy for his age. Must be because he ate healthy blueberries for all these years.
A Good Season for New Jersey Blueberries
The DiMeo family has many different farms and generations of DiMeo farmers that all work hard to continue to grow the family legacy of growing blueberries, started by Great-Grandop DiMeo over 100 years ago. Below is third generation DiMeo blueberry farmer A. DiMeo Jr. (the youngest cousin of second Farmer M. DiMeo, Sr., shown above) shows off fresh NJ blueberries from his blueberry farm in Hammonton, New Jersey. His workers are carefully dumping the newly harvested blueberry fruit from plastic picking lugs, the preferred blueberry lugs of the DiMeo family.

Healthy Living with Blueberries Nutrition
If you want to have good longevity like the DiMeo’s and live well into your 90s, you need to eat more blueberries because Anthony DiMeo, Sr.’s mother, Nancy DiMeo lived until she was 98 years-old, her sister Concetta lived to 101 years old and his brother, Farmer Joseph DiMeo lived to almost 101 years old. Below is a nice video of the entire DiMeo family singing happy birthday to this amazing man who was raised on the DiMeo family farms in New Jersey. He loved picking organic blueberries every summer and he kept everyones attention every time he told one of his stories, which were always memorable. Like most members of our DiMeo family, Farmer Joseph DiMeo worked well into his 90s and just like other members of the family, they don’t believe in retiring. Many of the DiMeo’s will tell you that if you “keep working” it will keep you more active and along with eating healthy locally grown organic fruits and vegetables are one of the greatest secrets to living longer!
