Certified Organic Blueberries from Pleasant Hill Farm
For over thirty years, John Van Voorhees and Joan Donaldson have grown organic blueberries at Pleasant Hill Farm, one of the first certified organic blueberry farms in Michigan. John is a third generation farmer who cultivates bushes planted by his grandfather and uncles in 1940's, and he also nurtures blueberry bushes that he planted in the family's peat bog. Because of the soil's high organic content, the years of sustainable farming, our blueberries are extra sweet and intensely flavorful. The Rubels cook into tasty muffins and jam, while the Jersey are great for snacking and in smoothies.
Pleasant Hill was originally certified by Organic Growers of Michigan and currently maintains certification through Oregon Tilth. John represented Michigan at the first conference to discuss national organic standards in 1989, and has presented at organic events sponsored by Michigan State University. John and Joan have trained summer interns in both farming and homesteading skills.
