Scot & Susan Dumke are full-time lovers of our planet. Their appreciation for Mother Nature has inspired them to participate in farming practices that conserve.
“For the last 11 years, we have maintained and harvested blueberries from about 40,000 plants. We made the decision to drop out of “Corporate America” in order to become good stewards to the planet. We save millions of gallons of water by using a pond that collects water run off for irrigation as well as installing cold air drains and wind machines in our field as an alternative to irrigation for frost protection. We have reduced our electric bill considerably by using a VFD (Variable Frequency Drive). We are constantly looking for ways to conserve and save. ”
Susan is known for her staple blue gingham clothing. Over the years, she has collected blue gingham shirts, pants, hats, even socks that are featured in her outfit every single day. “People even send me packages in the mail with blue gingham items. I guess you could say it has become my trademark!”
