Jerry Fields, president of Jerry’s Gourmet Berries, grew up in Los Angeles, California, attended MIT and served in the U.S. Air Force before working with a Washington area defense contractor. He dreamed of one day owning enough land to have a large garden and orchard. That dream came true when he and his family moved to Woodstock, Virginia in 1996 and cultivated his organic gardens and a small orchard. But as he loved eating good quality, healthy berries and wasn’t satisfied with the pesticide-laden berries found in stores, he decided to start his own organic berry farm. So he researched and learned everything he could about organic berries, soil testing, production, organic fertilizers, etc. Now he is the go-to person for information about berries and organic gardening in general. Today Jerry’s Gourmet Berries is the only USDA certified organic berry farm in the area and is dedicated to providing good quality organic gourmet berries and products.
Our goal is to provide high quality ORGANIC berries and berry products to the surrounding communities. Berries provide broad-reaching health benefits but are high on the USDA lists of products with high pesticide levels. We offer the benefits of berries without the risks associated with pesticide residue. To date, we offer various varieties of strawberries, blackberries, raspberries, and blueberries, aronia berries, currants, sea buckthorn berries, and pine berries.
