What's growing on? Blueberry farm
GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- One North Central Florida family bought a house and ended up with a blueberry farm.
"We put in under contract within a few days," Stephanie Anson explains, "and then that's when we realized what we got ourselves into."
Anson and her husband bought a new home in 2012 and ended up with a blueberry farm.
"We had no idea what we were doing...it was cumbersome, overwhelming."
A lack of knowledge didn't stop them, South Moon Farms reopened for the first "U-pick" season with the Ansons at the helm.
"When we first opened up we were laughing at ourselves, we were weighing right, if we were pricing correctly."
A tradition they had to keep going.
"So many families that love this and tell me stories when they were growing up and are glad to see its remaining open."
With two seasons, South Moon's season is often late - offering berries until mid-June.
"They sure aren't pristine but they taste pretty good."
