Raking blueberries is back breaking work

   The bluebberry season for Downeast Maine usually begins around the end of July and last for most of August. Workers travel from as far away and Haiti and Nicaragua to earn a wage raking the Maine Wild Blueberries.

Why the name, Maine Wild Blueberries? The blueberry plants are not planted and cultivated, they grow naturally when the land is prepared properly.

 

   The blueberries are processed in local factories during the harvest deason with the excess berries  frozen and processed during off season. It is now April 2013 and the factory is still processing the frozen berries. The blueberries provide the opportunity for work for well beyond the actual harvest season.
