65 Years of Growing Berries
About Leduc Farms
Leduc’s is located 11 miles west of Kalamazoo and south of M-43 on 30th Street in Paw Paw, Michigan. Leduc Farms was established in 1955 after Roger and Jackie Leduc decided to pursue their dream of farming. When they started they had no idea that their original 20-acres of blueberries would eventually grow into a 400-acre farm with both blueberries and strawberries. The farm is now owned and operated by their son, Joe. The Leduc's pride themselves on their ability to not only provide high quality fruit, but also doing what they can to support their community.
A majority of the Leduc's production is sold commercially, however an important part of the Leduc Farms experience is their retail store. Joe's wife, Chantal played an integral role in making their retail store what it is today. During season you can visit their retail store and get fresh, hand-picked blueberries and strawberries. In addition to fresh fruit you will also find a variety of products including blueberry jams, jellies, syrup, honey and mustard just to name a few. Their products are also available year-round on their online store. Click here to visit the online store.

What exactly does a berry farmer do in the off season?
The berry season is an intense and very busy time for the Leduc's, so careful preparation is vital to the success of their business. Contrary to what you might think, the job of a Michigan berry farmer doesn't last just the three months of summer. During the off-season, the Leduc’s are busy:
* Repairing Equipment
* Renovating and Upgrading their Facilities
* Preparing for Next Years Audits
* Ordering Supplies
* New Product Development
* Purchasing Promotional Materials
* Field Work/Pruning
The Leduc's also enjoy spending time with family and friends during the off-season.
