All agriculture is dependent on water. Blueberry production creates more jobs per litre of water used in production, on a per hectare basis, than any other fruit commodity.
A significant portion of our production is in pots, requiring a carefully managed approach to caring for the growing medium so that it can last in excess of ten to fifteen years. Where we do grow in the soil, more often than not we have converted an old seed-crop farm into a fruit orchard, restoring the soil to an arable state.
An equally critical focus is placed on energy. We have embarked on a renewable energy strategy and our first production unit is completely off the grid, through a combination of solar and battery storage.
