Nicholas Wilson, DC Farms

Blueberry Development
Grant Award: $4,000

Nicholas and Misty plan to diversify their cattle, freezer beef, and hay operation with the addition of a one-acre Pick Your Own blueberry operation.

They will plant four year old bushes in a low-performing area of pasture that is not productive for hay but has the right pH for blueberries. As part of their project they will also install drip irrigation and water tanks which will enable them to efficiently irrigate and fertilize the plants.

They will offer picked blueberries for sale at the pole barn they currently use for their retail beef sales.
