|Welcome to Coastal California Blueberry Farm.
In 2007, Coastal California Blueberry Farm introduced blueberries to
southern California’s agricultural tapestry. Today 169 acres
of prime Ventura County farmland are being planted with blueberries
in this “fruitful venture.” Our goal here at
the Farm is to provide the best in healthful, plump, delicious blueberries
for a prolonged season that extends from late
winter (February) into summer (June). Depending on our current trials
with late-bearing varieties and the application of suitable agricultural
practices, it is hoped that production can be extended somewhat into
the early fall (September-October). The blueberry bushes are thriving
in the moderate climate of Ventura County’s beautiful Santa Rosa
Valley, where the Gerry family has farmed for almost one hundred years.
Using the latest in innovative technology, combined with the experience
of generations in farming, Coastal California Blueberry Farm looks
forward to being a leader in southern California’s burgeoning
blueberry production for decades to come.
The project is located on historic citrus and avocado ranches owned
and operated by the Gerry Family.
