Farm history: Established in 1947, Bow Hill Blueberries is the site of the oldest family-run blueberry farm in Skagit Valley.  The Soltes family, taking over in 2011, focused on rejuvenating the soil and transitioning those historic fields to Certified Organic.  The Ranz siblings and their families bought the farm in 2020 and have plans to introduce regenerative farming pracices and a non profit educational center for youth.  The farm specializes in heirloom variety blueberries and harvests over 70,000 pounds of specialty fruit per year, with a majority being transformed into a line of heirloom, organic blueberry products.

AgFARMation: Blueberries and blueberry products are sold direct off the farm, online and at the Bellingham and Pike Place Farmer’s Markets. They can also be found in the cafeterias of Amazon, Microsoft; the smoothie bar of the Seattle Seahawks; and at regional Co-ops, Haggen Foods, PCC, Whole Foods, Metropolitan Market, Marx Foods, Cone & Steiner, and Slough Foods.
