Roebuck Blues Blueberries on Roebuck Plantation

Poppa John's healthy choice

About Us

Our company is based on the belief that our blueberries are the sweetest in the Mississippi Delta, HECK, maybe anywhere.

Our normal harvest season is the first day of June through the second week in July. GOD takes a big hand in that time frame and we will keep everyone up to date on this ABOUT US page. Always visit this site before making plans to come to our field to pick your own. Rain closes the field until the bushes can dry again.

07/6/2014. The Fourth of July celebration continued on into our field and through the weekend. It was our closing weekend this year. I wish they could all be as memorable.


Orders for local deliveries of our hand picked blueberries was brisk and intense. I hope everyone got as many as they needed. Interesting note on our prices versus the grocery store prices. We sold our that day fresh picked berries for $12.50 per gallon and at the same time the local groceries were selling them, at least a week old, for $100.00 per gallon.


We will now be closed until harvest season of 2015.

Hard to believe that will be our 27th year.


06/10/2014 Two days of heavy heavy rain and wind. We will have the field closed till Thursday


6/12/2014 Due to the poor condition of the roads and field.


06/06/2014 Opening day was grand with great weather and so many families coming out to pick their own berries.


05/26/2014 Our first variety is starting to show some blue color but it is running behind last years maturity time due to cool nights.

It appears that we will have fruit for pick your own groups about Saturday June 7th 2014. Please check back here for an update should that date be changed.


10/21/2013 Fall colors are hitting the plants now with each cooler morning gaining more oranges and purples. Fruit set seems to be good.


07/15/2013 We began today pruning all our plants. They will be reduced from a height of 12 feet down to 5 feet. They had grown so big in one year that our mechanical harvester had a difficult time going over them and picking them. We may lose up to 30% of our annual harvest by doing this but the big boys were unmanageable


06/28/2013 Pick your own will continue till 07/14/2013 when we plan to close. As of today we have stopped taking orders for our hand picked fresh blueberries to be delivered to local homes and offices. I hope everyone got as many as they wanted

this year.


06/22/2013 Today we had a group of 4 young men from a local baptist church pick a large quantity of berries. They said they were taking them home and cleaning and bagging them for the elderly widow ladies of their church to give to them this Sunday. What a nice group of young men!!



06/17/2013 The fields will be closed till Thursday 06/20/2013 due to 2 inches of rain this morning. The road to the field is impassable.

We will have a pick your own price of only $2.00 per pound, so bring family and friends and have a great time. They freeze so well for storage there is no reason not to take advantage of such a great price and put away enough for all year.



From our family to yours, ENJOY!
