We are first generation Florida farmers who met and got married while in school at the University of Florida. We started our careers in forestry and education but 22 years later life has us here with 2 kids and a blueberry farm.
Atwood Family Farm began in 2013 when we purchased the old, worn out grove on highway 450 in Umatilla. After evaluating the condition of the citrus trees we decided that they were too far gone to rehabilitate so the decision was made to plant blueberries based on Ryan's experiences with the industry when he was an agriculture extension agent. In 2019 we acquired a blueberry farm in Eustis, Florida and we made the decision to relocate our U-Pick operation and pumpkin patch to that site.
Our hope is that your family enjoys spending time at our farm making memories together now and for years to come. We look forward to meeting you this spring at Upick!
