Building the Soil
Dick Byne began working enormous quantities of organic matter into his soil long before people started talking “organics.” In fact, Byne Blueberry Farms is the first ever USDA Certified Organic blueberry farm in the Southeast. Established in 1980, Byne Blueberry Farms is a true-to-form family operation in Waynesboro, GA. Dick is a 2009 Master Farmer and an 8th generation farmer. He won the Burke County Business of the Year in 2012, and is the first business in the state to win the coveted “Flavor of Georgia” award five times.
