Every once and awhile it’s good to look back at history and see all of the hard work that was done to create what people enjoy today. Back then, our family would have bus loads of blueberry pickers come in from New York City and Philadelphia to pick DiMeo blueberries at our New Jersey blueberry farms. Many of the people back then were the Italian immigrants and even some of the Irish, but they worked hard. They were paid .2 cents per blueberry pint picked back then. Here are some of the original tickets from 100 years ago that were issued to DiMeo blueberry pickers when they walked up to the truck in the blueberry field with the crate full of freshly picked blueberries. Lots of history here – we continue it every day. Come grow with us: www.DiMeoFarms.com

If you are interested in increasing your consumption of fresh organic blueberries then you are probably already a blueberry lover who understands the health benefits of blueberries in your daily diet. If not, then read on as we at DiMeo Fruit Farms go over some of the most commonly known health benefits of blueberries in your daily life.
Let’s discuss the health benefits of DiMeo blueberries:
Blueberries Help Reduce The Risk For Cancer And Other Age Related Illnesses
It’s true. Blueberries have the highest concentration of antioxidants as compared to all other “super fruits” except Aronia black chokeberries which we offer have Aronia black chokeberry plants for sale at our family farm, but we will discuss them in a later blog post. As for blueberries, they are extremely rich in anthocyanin compounds which are one of the most powerful forms of antioxidants known to man. There are also several other extremely beneficial antioxidants found in blueberries. Antioxidants are known specifically for helping to eliminate free radicals which in turn is suggested to lower the risks for many age related illnesses including cancer and heart disease.
Blueberries Extremely Rich in Vitamins and Minerals
Yes, blueberries are known to have high amounts of naturally occurring vitamin C, vitamin K, copper, selenium, manganese, and much more. Eating fresh organic blueberries is an excellent way to get the vitamins that your body needs and get them in their natural form rather than through a multi-vitamin. Many of the vitamins in blueberries are major contributors to a healthy immune system which means that eating more fresh organic blueberries may mean getting sick less.
Blueberries Lower Cholesterol
Blueberries contain an antioxidant called Pterostilbene which has been shown to reduce cholesterol as well or better than prescription medications.
Blueberries Prevent Urinary Tract Infections
Recent studies have shown that blueberries contain the compound Epicatechin which is know to work by preventing bacteria from attaching to the lining of bladder tissue. This allows the bacteria to be discarded during urination.
Eating Fresh Blueberries Improves Eyesight
Blueberries, as said before, contain the antioxidant anthocyanin which is widely known to help improve eyesight in many different ways. It has been proven to help reduce eye strain, improve night vision, and improve the speed at which your eyes are able to adjust to changes in light (going from light to very dark areas quickly).
Eating Blueberries Improves Digestion
Blueberries are rich in fibers that help to improve digestion and are a way to fight constipation naturally.
Eating Blueberries Helps To Improve Brain Function
Blueberries are known to improve brain function, especially in older adults. It is also believed that in some cases they actually help reverse some of the age related decreases in brain function.
