Blueberry Country

Record #:
The father of commercial blueberry farming in North Carolina is Harold Graham Huntington. In 1928 before his arrival to NC, blueberries only grew in the wild. By 1939, his Pender County blueberry farm was the largest in the world. Huntington is also responsible for the strains of blueberries which grow best in the state today. Huntington’s history of farming and his involvement in the blueberry industry are detailed.
