Owner description: The fresh, summery taste of the wild blueberry is like no other you have experienced. Here, at the Home of the Big Blueberry, you can find out how that great taste gets from the Earth to you. You know this wild berry’s ‘cultivated’ cousins, but your behind-the-scenes tour lets you in on the secrets of how the wild berries just grow on their own in this naturally acidic soil.Owners of this family-run business add to your tour with stories that show their passion for tending to their wild blueberry fields. You learn how the berries go from ‘blossom-to-box’, with live or virtual close-up looks at the blueberry plants themselves, the harvesting equipment and the picking processes. During the growing season you visit the cleaning and packing areas and watch workers sort berries on their way to market.The sweet smell of fresh-baked pie and jam waft toward your nose as your visit nears the Signature Taste Tour , of mouth-watering wild blueberry gourmet treats, including the savoury ‘Wild Blueberries with a Kick’ products that are exclusive to Granite Town Farms.

“Down home flavor”
Reviewed 17 July 2012

Welcomed by a friendly staff with not only knowledge of the products they sell but of the surrounding area as well. The owners, Beth and David often take time out of their busy schedules to chat with those that just drop in. It is also a popular day trip destination for the cruise lines that visit Saint John, NB. If you are looking for "local flavor" then why not experience it sweetened by wild blueberries. Definitely, a place worth taking time for.
