It all began in the early 1980s somewhat on a whim. After decades of having black
angus cows and then boarding horses on his scenic farm on Steuben Hill Rd in Herkimer,
Al Wereszczak (pronounced Wer'-zak) decided he wanted to try something different. He proceeded to adapt his nurturing green thumb to the planting of a few hundred blueberry seedlings. That experiment expanded after a few years and evolved into the present irrigated patch on 5 manicured acres.
Al Wereszczak has been running the
blueberry patch andoperation for ~ 35 years.
Al's shown here in an older photo with several of his grandchildren.
The public has been coming to Steuben Hill Rd for ~ 35 years in July and August
to pick, buy, and enjoy our blueberries. If you have never been here, then we
invite you to visit us for the first time. If you are one of our many loyal
customer friends, then we look forward to seeing you again.
