Producer Profile ... Bloobs
Bloobs organic blueberry farm is situated in the scenic area of Gardner’s Bay, 5 minutes’ drive from Cygnet.
Tim and Jo who have managed the farm, brought up a family and worked other jobs, planted their first blueberry plants as small sticks 10 years ago. Their blueberry bushes are now fully mature and producing large, delicious fruit.
The farm name “Bloobs” was the nickname that their boys used for blueberries when they were younger. All three boys now work on the farm in their school holidays.
At Bloobs, the picking season starts in mid-December and runs until late February. Throughout the year, soil health and nutrition are carefully managed, and pruning is the focus during the winter months.
Tim and Jo are passionate about growing a product that is genuinely healthy, high quality and certified organic. The Cygnet area is traditionally a fruit growing area, with its cool climate and long growing season producing high quality fruit with great flavour.
They also have a strong focus on sustainability this is evident by the way the fruit is produced as well as the type of packaging they use. They prefer to source locally made, recycled products and are constantly looking for alternatives to traditional plastic packaging.
