Native to North America, blueberries were enjoyed by early colonists not only as a sweet part of their daily diet, but as a means to dye clothing. The berries were also used to dye baskets and to make paint. Blueberries are second only to strawberries as the most consumed berry in the United States.
Rich in free radical busting anti-oxidants; in this case optimizing your nervous system and brain health, blueberries are the perfect addition to your summer breakfast! We like to sprinkle ours over bitter greens with red onion, pecans and balsamic vinaigrette for the ultimate summer salad.
We have a couple of pints to sell you, or you can purchase your very own plant. The farm stand is open from 10-5 today, and we’d love to see you! We also have eggs available, five bucks gets you a dozen fresh eggs!
Thank you for supporting our farm, a local Napa owned business!

Although Winter has teased its arrival with icy mornings and slippers on my feet evenings I must consider what bounty I would like to harvest in Spring and Summer on Hurley Farms.
Every seed is planted and kept as toasty as possible in our greenhouse.
We are starting to plan our berry plants, and would love to start a few for you too! If you call or visit, we can help you plan your summer garden and get your plants started for you. We will plant raspberries, blackberries and blueberries.
You can reserve now for Winter/Spring planting and have a bountiful crop of healthy local berries by late Summer/Fall.
