Our goal for our farm has always been to grow the best tasting, highest quality blueberries while using the least possible amount of chemicals. As we have aged and as our blueberry fields have aged, it has become increasingly difficult to meet that goal. As a result, we have chosen to retire as blueberry growers and Prelock Blueberry Farm is now permanently closed.
Tippecanoe County still has 2 u-pick blueberry farms and the local groceries carry fresh blueberries year round so we know this community will continue to have access to healthy and delicious fresh blueberries without our farm’s presence.
Blueberry season often felt more like a family reunion than a business and we will miss that but we are excited to move into the next chapter of our lives. We appreciate the support and friendship of so many of you who came year after year, rejoicing with us in the abundant harvests and commiserating with us in the difficult years. We love visiting the other u-pick farms in the area and we hope to see you there in the coming years.
Thanks again for the wonderful support you gave us the past 23 years.
God bless you all,
Matt & Esther Prelock
