Stories 10,000 years in the making
Maine produces nearly 100% of all Wild Blueberries grown in the United States. Grown across 42,000 acres, this wild fruit has evolved from native plants that have existed in the state for thousands of years. The farmers who steward these berries prepare all year to end up with roughly three weeks to harvest their entire crop.
These are their stories.
