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

The huge size of giant blueberries from DiMeo’s Farms blueberry plants belies the the numerous health benefits your family and loved ones can gain from consuming blueberries. With its contribution to overall brain health and wellness and the many blueberry recipes that can be concocted using this super fruit, it is no wonder the blueberry has become one of the most popular berries in the world. Native Americans from the Northeast regions of the United States and the Eastern seaboard of Canada have given much importance to blueberries because of the powerful medicinal properties and the uses for healthy food that it provides. The folklore that surrounds blueberries includes the belief that it is the spirit of ancestors that look after the people in times of hunger and famine. The American Indian tribes also preserved blueberries in time for the cold winter months, when other food sources were scarce. While they believed that blueberry juice can treat cough, they also were confident that tea made out of blueberry leaves can cleanse the blood. Whether as a cure of an ailment or an answer to food shortage, the Native Americans turned to blueberries to help them in their greatest time of need.
Fast forward to the present time, blueberries are still growing in popularity in many parts of the world aside from Northern America, where it is an indigenous fruit. Even homeowners, edible landscapers and gardeners have all discovered the wonders of growing their own blueberry plants at home, with the goal of having a constant supply of fresh produce whenever they need it. With many of the best blueberry varieties to choose from, anyone who desires to grow their own fresh blueberries can cultivate the variety that is ideal in their location. The better known blueberry varieties are Northblue, Bluecrop, Berkeley (popular among home blueberry growers), and Chandler, the world’s largest blueberry can be found at DiMeo Farms.
We have known since childhood that orange and yellow colored vegetables are good for the eyesight. It is a lot more fascinating when mothers slyly add carrots or squash to their children’s meals. But studies on ophthalmology reveal that eating more fruits helps one stay away from vision destroying diseases. Simply tossing in a cup of fresh organic blueberries onto a bed of greens, or even serving them alongside salmon, chicken, or blueberry ice cream, is enough for you to meet your daily needs. Of course, this should go hand in hand with other “super fruits” such as the Aronia black chokeberry, raspberries and even cranberries.
So whether you like blueberry yogurts, blueberries smoothies, blueberry pancakes, muffins, tarts and pies, or you just happen to like the simple goodness of a fresh blueberry, surely you cannot go wrong when you eat this delicious fruit.
