It's a pink forest as the blueberry blossoms open. We are making more colonies of bees for people who ordered their nucleus colonies this winter, and putting on the honey supers so the blueberry nectar will be part of this year's honey harvest. Visit our Beekeeping page for more information.
Wildflower honey, our buzz line of skin products, beeswax candles, and more will be available at farmers markets in the area, beginning Saturday, April 4, at the Charleston Farmers Market and Tuesday, April 7, at the Mt Pleasant Farmers Market beside Moultrie Middle School off Coleman Blvd. You can also order online, and we take orders for our freshly caught live blue crab by email.
The Crab Bus is out regularly to harvest wild Atlantic blue crab, and they are running strong and full right now. Spring birds include American Ibis, Great Blue Heron, bald eagles, American oystercatchers and many more. The winter flounder are still here, but the trout and young spottail are moving in. And most days, we have a stalker following us...a longtime resident dolphin in the Jeremy Creek waterway.
Take some Blue Pearls home with you
Blue Pearl Farms has a limited number of three-year-old heritage varieties of
organically tended rabbiteye blueberry plants for sale in 3- up to 10- gallon pots. The
plants are field-dug and ready to be
planted this year. These varieties require cross-pollination, at least six hours
of sunlight, and some space between the plants (4-5 feet) so they don't
grow into each other.
It's easy to schedule a farm tour or event for your group or family or a special class or workshop for your group of five or more. For details, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call us on the farm line at 843-887-3554.
