Blueberries climb to the top in Peach State

Special to SEGAZINE

When Mike and Diane Stafford bought a 17-acre wooded parcel in CrawfordCounty about seven years ago, they knew they wanted to plant blueberries.

It wasn’t because the soil and weather in Georgia were ideal for the blue fruit. And it wasn’t because they expected to join the hosts of farmers expanding their blueberry operations or starting up commercial blueberry farms, pushing blueberry production past peach production in the Peach State.

The reason for the Staffords was a lot less scientific.

“We had seen an article in a magazine about growing blueberries about 10 years ago,” Diane Stafford said. “I had never even eaten a blueberry.”
