Esther Prelock and her husband Matt have owned a blueberry farm southeast of Lafayette for 20 years.
They grow two types of the fruit on their farm and make their living letting people come pick blueberries for two-to-three weeks each summer. To the naked eye, all the plants look the same – even Esther can’t tell them apart.
“One is a little tarter flavor, one is a little sweeter," she says. "They both ripen at the same time and that’s why we have them together.”
