Blueberry Cultivation Demonstration

July 8 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Visit the birthplace of the commercial blueberry and learn by doing! Joseph Darlington, our farmer and the grand nephew of Miss Lizzy will teach about cultivation in our classroom then lead the group into the original triangle test field with a variety of heritage blueberries.

Enjoy the harvest of local and heritage blueberries in the place where they were developed…Whitesbog Village, home of Elizabeth Coleman White, developer of the first commercial crop of New Jersey highbush blueberries! You will also have the opportunity to try some blueberry jam, chocolate covered blueberries from our General Store and walk the blueberry fields, taste some right from the bushes and purchase blueberry bushes to take home!
Reservations are requested by calling 609-893-4646, $10/person
