Know your farmer

Shady Oak Farms is a family owned and operated business that has been in operation for 16 years. Prior to that, it was a u-pick muscatine vineyard run by Wilton Colson for around 40 years. We still have some of those muscatines vines here today. We have about 26,000 blueberry plants. We offer 5 different varieties of blueberries: emeralds, jewels, gulf coast, sharp blue and spring high. We also offer emerald and jewel plants for resale as well as the mulch in which they are planted and detailed instructions on how to care for your plant.

We provide you with a u-pick option or we can pick them for you for a slightly higher price. Our prices are set by the wholesale price at the time of picking.
It means a lot to us here at Shady Oaks to see families come out and pick together.
Refresh your mind with a day at the farm! We are also available for your group, meetings or event. Before, during, and after you pick, come and enjoy a picnic by our peaceful pond. You can also watch the fish and the turtles as they try to get their fair share of your left over meal!
