Bethlehem, NC – Campbell’s Berry Farm to offer pruning workshops by appointment only

Campbell’s Berry Farm will offer free blueberry pruning instructional workshops in January and February 2021 by appointment only.

For the past two years, the farm has hosted an on-site blueberry pruning workshop conducted by NC State blueberry expert Bill Cline. Owners Tracy and Holly Campbell are anticipating that Mr. Cline will not be able to conduct an on-site workshop this year due to COVID-19.

“Because these workshops have been so popular and well attended, we want to continue to extend the opportunity for area residents to learn the important principles of blueberry pruning,” Holly said.

All sessions will be free, four-hour increments by appointment only for individuals or couples. The workshops will be outside at the 6-acre farm which has 2,700 blueberry bushes. In addition to participants learning the “Principles of Blueberry Pruning,” guests will also receive instructions on planting and fertilizing blueberry plants.

In the past, pruning workshop participants have not been able to actively prune blueberry bushes due to the large attendance; however, with this format, participants will have hands-on instruction and pruning time.

This workshop is FREE and by appointment only. Please bring your own gloves, food, and drink. Call Tracy or Holly Campbell at 828-598-0707 for more information and to schedule your personal time slot in January or February. Campbell’s Berry Farm is located at 27 Tracy Bolick Lane in Bethlehem.
