This page introduces your family to mine, and shares some of the history of Jo's BlueBerry Farm. —JoAnn Hahn
The farm is a portion of the 2000-acre land granted to a Civil War veteran named Justice N. Hahn, a relative of my late husband Rusty Hahn. Except for a brief period in 1990's, the land has been producing grain or has been used for pasture.
The 24+ acre segmant left to Rusty has 7 acres of wooded land and a large farm pond. The trees were planted by Rusty and his father Bart M. Hahn Sr. when Rusty was 13 years old. The 2½ acre farm pond has been there for more than 50 years.
In the 1990's, when still living in Tennessee, I had a dream of growing and selling blueberries using the land that my husband and I owned in North Carolina. Rusty and I had been taught at an early age to grow vegetables in a garden, but nothing on a large scale.
The thought of growing and selling our own crop continued to inspire us. Finally, we moved to Cabarrus county in 2000, and we settled on land owned by my husband's family. After Rusty's untimely death in 2001, I thought that my vision of growing and selling blueberries might not happen.
When I remarried in 2006, my husband Jerry shared my dream of farming the land again, and we worked to make that dream become a reality. First, we purchased over 100 bare-root blueberry plants. Later, hundreds more took root on the farm. 2010 was our first year selling to the public. Today, over 600 plants are in various stages of production.
The berries grown on our farm are large and sweet. The season is long, due to planting multiple varieties of rabbiteye blueberry plants. They bloom and are harvested throughout the summer. Our blueberries are organic; we never use pesticides on our blueberry plants.
