25,000 years ago as glaciers tore their way through North America, they left behind a unique mix of soil that only a few plants would thrive in.

One of those first plants to adapt in this new terrain was the wild blueberry bush. But don’t let the small size of this berry fool you.

It’s a fruit packed with history, wars and innovation.Join John and Patrick as they take us through the barrens of Maine and trace the story of how the wild blueberry became the tamed, cultivated blueberry we all know today.
