Hazen’s Blueberry Farm

Hazen’s Blueberry Farm – “In the 1950’s and 60’s Arthur Hazen purchased 25 acres of land in Commerce Township and 80 acres in Howell, Michigan. After clearing the land during evenings, weekends, and holidays, Art and his son, Dennis planted over 25 acres of blueberry bushes and launched the future of Hazen’s Farms. As time passed, the farms consolidated in Howell and became strictly U-pick.
Opening day of blueberry season has become a working family tradition as everybody pitches in. At Hazen’s Farm we offer only the highest quality of blueberries – varieties include: Bluecrop – considered the best all around variety for adaptability, consistent yields, high quality fruit and disease resistance.
Bluecrop is perhaps the most widely planted variety in the U.S. Blueray – an old favorite and versatile variety, Blueray performs particularly well in areas with hot summers or very cold winters, and produces high quality berries with outstanding dessert flavor. Jersey – one of the oldest and most widely grown of all varieties, Jersey is a favorite for farmers wanting a bush that produces heavy late season crops year after year. This bush tolerates a wide range of soil types, and the small to medium sized, sweet tasting fruit is a favorite for baking.”
