Just a few miles down the road from Kirby's Farm Market, a great big Italianate house sits on a hill in Holley, surrounded by tall trees and old outbuildings. Hundreds of blueberry bushes cascade down the hill from the barns, creating a beautiful scene, and amazing blueberries! We get all of our blueberries from Fabry's, and we couldn't be luckier to have such a great source as nearby as they are.
