Billy Augustine, Sr. grew up in New Jersey as an avid horse lover. He raised and rode horses while his neighbors grew acres of blueberries. When Billy was in his 20’s, he began spending time with his friends’ parents to learn about growing blueberries. This sparked the beginning of a lifelong passion.
Billy moved to North Carolina about 10 years ago and started up a blueberry farm. He chose early fruiting varieties with plump berries because he knew those are the berries consumers prefer.
Billy cares immensely about his blueberry crop from the wells he dug specially for irrigation to the way he cares for his workers. Look for the labels with the horse, and you’ll know you’re getting Augustine Farms’ blueberries.
