Homegrown Organic Kicks Off Oregon Blueberry Season
PORTERVILLE, CA - Homegrown Organic Farms’ Oregon blueberry season has commenced. The company anticipates a great season, as berry quality has been outstanding so far.
“We are anticipating a more consistent, spread-out season over last year’s mostly front-loaded harvest. Our farms are located throughout the state of Oregon and are strategically planted with proven Northwest varieties such as Duke and Draper,” Cherie France, Marketing Manager, tells AndNowUKnow.
“We are always working on new variety development and continue to seek out those varieties that have an excellent flavor profile while maintaining larger sizing and durability. The 2014 harvest is expected to last 8 weeks and should wrap up in late-August,” France notes.
Homegrown’s goal is to further expand and connect the west coast by filling out both its California and Northwest production. For the benefit of the company’s customers, Homegrown knows it is important that they continue to allocate resources toward developing the necessary organic supply from April - September.
“Quality is always our number one priority and we are proud of the fact that we have complete control from the farm to the market place, and everything in between. This allows us to maintain the attention to detail necessary to ensure the high-quality standards that are at the core of who we are,” France tells us.
Along with Homegrown’s blue organic goodness the company has additional retail support to offer to its customers including display bins, organic promotional material, grower stories, and social media support.
