MEET THE BLUEBERRY FARMERS
Their watermelon livelihood began at the hands of J.B. and Carl O’Neal in the 1940’s. Four generations later, Coosaw Farms, led by Brad O’Neal, is one of the leading Mid-Atlantic watermelon producers in the US. In 2018, Seaside Grown partnered with Coosaw Farms, not for their watermelons, but for their incredibly plump blueberries, grown as part of the farm’s sustainability plan for good crop diversity.
Mount Dora, FL
With experience growing fresh fruits and vegetables in Central Florida since 1952, the Hill and Atwood families came together to provide a service to the local community as well as a direct source of sales to retail chains. H&A Farms is a grower-owned and operated blueberry packing facility harvesting fruit with high maturity and full flavor. We met H&A Farms in 2020 through our connection with the Demand American Grown initiative. Two great families and an incredible product we are proud to use in our recipes.
