Delta Blue Blueberries is surrounded by a large natural wetlands areas that harbors migratory fowl (i.e.: ducks, geese, pheasants, etc…), small and large vertebrae mammals, reptiles, bees, insects, flora and fauna. This immediate resource is essentially undisturbed and allowed to go through its natural cycles. These cycles are dependent upon the seasonal changes and species population migration and development. Delta Blue Blueberries embraces this setting by providing flowering bushes, grasses, shrubs, and trees as food sources for this habitat. Our blueberries grow right on the Stockton delta, which provides rich nutrients for the plants.
Our organic blueberries are heavily mulched to naturally and non-chemically combat weed pressures as well as provide food sources for the soil micro biomass (i.e.: worms, bacteria and fungi) which are necessary for natural nutrient exchange within the growing medium. We feel, strong microbial health is critical for proper blueberry development. Harsh chemicals and over fertilization has been shown to be detrimental to microbial populations. Stockton CA blueberries are organically grown and do not use synthetic fertilizers. The plethora of bees, fungi, earthworms, and microbes in our soils are living proof of our responsible farming practices.
Delta Blue Blueberries is a progressive green farming team that strives to provide organically grown, high quality, flavorful fruit while being good stewards of the land, air, water and environment. We feel through responsible farming practices we can provide highly nutritious fruit and make the world a better place.
