Mitchell's Patch of Blue
The year was 1943 when the Mitchell family purchased the plot of land to make their dreams of farming a reality. By 1956, they planted four acres of Jersey Blueberries in Bangor, MI and Mitchell's Patch of Blue was born. Fast-forwarding to present, that dream has expanded to 25 acres, boasting six varieties of blueberries. Ran by 6th generation Michigan farmer, 3rd generation blueberry farmer, Kalamazoo Valley Agrifoods & Culinary Arts professor Kyle Mitchell and his wife, Natalie, the farm continues to thrive on the original Mitchell ambition. We are Group GAP certified, and organic transition.
