***BLUEBERRIES , ELDERBERRIES & VEGETABLES***
Big Bear Farms, Inc. is a family owned and operated ORGANIC Blueberry and Vegetable farm. We operate under the strict rules of the USDA - National Organic Program (NOP) and are certified by Quality Certification Services (QCS). Unlike many farms that falsely claim to be organic, we are the REAL DEAL and have the documents proudly on display to prove it. We are also U.S.D.A. FARMGAP FOOD SAFETY CERTIFIED.
We started in 1990 as a conventional farm but by 1991 we had stopped using any chemical pesticides in our production fields. From 1991 til 2004 the only thing that keep us from being organic was our use of regular chemical fertilizers. T
