What the heck is with all the Blueberries? Greenfield, NH is site of the first successfully cultivated blueberries! Botanist Frederick Vernon Coville bought a summer home here in 1905 and discovered highbush blueberry bushes growing crazy wild. Well, the rest, as they say, is history and no matter where in the world you are when you pick up that next pint of blueberries for your pancakes, remember that their roots stretch all the way back to little old Greenfield, NH. If you have to hang your reputation on something, it might as well be blueberries!
Life isn't much different in Greenfield today. Home to less than 1,800 people, life is still pretty easy going with really no industry to speak of. Instead, people thrive on the little things in life such as community, conservation and keeping friends with those who for "some reason" have lots of blueberry bushes growning wild on their property. Today, Greenfield's most famous "resident" is perhaps the Yankee Siege (GOOGLE that one!) and now the Yankee Siege II. If you drive in on Rt 31 from Wilton, it's hard to miss them! Greenfield looks forward to your visit!
