Welcome to Perseverance Wild Blueberry Farm

Perseverance Wild Blueberry Farm provides a back-to-nature experience.  Borrow our rakes and buckets to harvest in the traditional way, then clean your own berries with antique winnowers. Or call ahead to place an order for cleaned berries by the pound or quart.  Learn about the history of blueberry farming, and best of all, take home our wild blueberries to eat fresh and freeze for year round use.

 

Nancy and Lou Sidell have been managing wild blueberries since May of 1987 when they bought Perseverance Wild Blueberry Farm in remote Kingsbury Plantation, in southern Piscataquis County. The 110 acres of blueberries grow on Cowett Hill, with panoramic views of the Barren Mountains, wooded hills, and distant bogs.  The blueberries are grown using Best Management Practices to minimize the use of pesticides.

 

Unlike the usual Downeast Maine Wild Low-bush Blueberries, ours are the sour-top variety, which grow at higher elevations. Perseverance Farm blueberries are much more flavorful and uniformly bright blue in color.  Come find out for yourself.
