Blueberries for Sale

The worst drought in a half-century has had a devastating effect on agriculture in Alabama, but one local crop is thriving.

Forrest Haynes owns a u-pick blueberry farm on Geneva County Road 16; he says this is his best batch of berries in nearly a decade.

The lack of water has made the blueberries extremely sweet.

His customers come as far away as Atlanta to buy the healthy fruit.

Haynes says the blueberry season will wind-down in July.
