About Us

Hillcrest Blueberry Farm began in 1992 with the planting of 50 acres of blueberries by dairy farmers Chris Alexander and his father. While continuing the daily grind of a typical dairy farm an additional 20 acres of blueberries were planted in 1994 and by 1998 the dairy farm was phased out. As demand for blueberrries increased locally, additional acreage was planted. In May of 2006, Chris's father retired and handed the operation over to Chris.

Chris and wife, Daye purchased a state-of-the-art blueberry harvester in 2007. In 2008, Chris and Daye purchased a color sorter, added 46 acres of new blueberry planting and opened an on-site seasonal farm store. In 2009, an additional 16 acres of blueberries were re-planted. The farm has continued to grow with the addition of custom grading for other local blueberry farmers and a custom label for the wholesale market. The 2014 season saw more visitors to the u-pick fields and farm store than ever before.
