Starting out as just a bunch of blueberries, we are striving to do more and more at the farm, we now have 2 Jerusalem Donkey's, the male is "Dasher" and the female is "Dancer". Plenty of chickens a few ducks, and several goats you will be able to see when you come out to the farm. We also have "Maggie's Butterfly Garden," which is a must visit.
As a farm, we are constantly seeking efficiency within our work. We have a fully coordinated irrigation system running to all of our blueberry bushes, as well as a new aquaponics system. We are finding ways to become more efficient every day, including our ways of fertilizer spreading.
At Blu By U, we are mainly focused on blueberries, however, we will be installing a hydroponics system to be able to house 5,000 strawberry plants that should produce in Spring 2020.
Blu by U is not seeking organic status, but we use natural growing methods.
