Welcome! We are Jim & Beth Dukes. We have been farming all our life and began growing blueberries in 2011. Our current location is conveniently situated between Gainesville & Ocala, FL. We own & operate our family farm with our two children: Dustin & Gracie. Our farm is comprised of approx. 30 acres of succulent early spring blueberries. We are passionate about living a self-sustainable life & strive to produce a safe & healthy product for our family and consumers alike.
We at Southern Grace Berries strive to produce for the members of our community locally grown blueberries that are of high quality, delicious and healthy. Because we hold ourselves to some of the most stringent food safety policies & procedures here in the United States, we can proudly say our blueberry farm is GAP Certified which ensures you & your family are eating a safe and nutrient-packed product picked fresh on our Florida farm. We've carefully selected several varieties of blueberry bushes that traditionally grow best in our region of Florida and are typically at their peak production throughout the whole month of April.
We are a veteran owned operation. Jim served 5 years in the U.S. Marine Corps and retired a few years ago from the Jacksonville Fire Department. He is proud to have served his country and continues to do so by always honoring those who have served before him, with him and those who continue to serve today. We THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR SERVICE!
