You might say Doug Nofziger of Lazy D Farms has blueberries running through his veins; since 1988 the fourth generation family farmer, alongside his uncle Maynard, has had planted, nurtured and harvested some of the very best blueberries in the Willamette Valley of Oregon.
Tim Dierickx, of Dierickx Farms, is a third generation farmer in the Banks Oregon area. The farm, started by his grandfather back in 1905, has been a Century Farm for the last eight years. His grandparents, having emigrated from Belgium, started their life in the new country with a brief stay in Nebraska but eventually moving west to the fertile land Tualatin Valley of western Oregon. It was there that they purchased and settled on the 180 acre farm that is still farmed today. Over the years that farm has expanded to over 300 acres.
