Victoria Island Farm

16021 CA-4, Holt, CA 95234

At Victoria Island Farm “Our Southern and Northern Highbush blueberries thrive in the island’s mineral-rich, peaty soil, just as their wild cousins, the blackberries, have for centuries. Victoria Island Farms blueberries are notable for their plumpness, taste, and freshness. Our blueberries go from field to package in record time. Within an hour of leaving the bush, our blueberries are cooled and packaged, and cooled again. They leave the farm in pre-cooled trucks.

Blueberries begin to ripen in May and are harvested until early July. Each field is harvested 3-5 times depending on ripening characteristics of the variety. Most varieties require a certain range of chilling hours (temperatures below 40 degrees) for optimal production.

During the summer harvest season, Victoria Island Farms opens up a portion of our blueberry fields to the public for U-Pick at the farm visits and purchase of pre-packed fresh blueberries. The 2021 u-pick season will run on weekends only from Saturday, May 15 to Sunday, June 20 with pre-packed fresh blueberries for sale at least through the end of June. Check our homepage to view up to date information on hours, availability and seasonal products offered at the Victoria Island Farm Stand.”
