Sierra Cascade Blueberry Farm is located in the Lassen foothills east of Chico, where John & Armen Carlon have been farming 8.5 acres of blueberries (11,000 plants) on their 61 acre property, since 1989.
They work very hard to grow their berries in a socially and environmentally responsible matter – using cultural practices that respect their watershed, wildlife and the wildlands that surround their farm, and paying wages that are above the state’s mandated minimum. With a newly added solar array to pump water, the Carlons are working to reduce off-farm inputs. They carefully selected blueberry varieties that grow well in their particular climate and location. This, combined with good soil, water, and organic practices, consistently produces berries of outstanding quality and flavor.
