Farming Blueberries On Exmoor

Most Exmoor locals and Exmoor lovers will have tasted the local fruit, Whortleberries. But Exford farmer Simon Keily decide to grow their relative – the blueberry – as a commercial crop.

The project has been through tough times but Simon’s decision to attain organic status and to become a pick-your-own destination means that his blueberry business is facing a rosy future. Exmoor Radio went to visit Simon and learned that he grows many different blueberry varieties, including one that tastes like the childhood sweet cola cubes!
