In 1987, RBO founder Dahinda Meda purchased Royal Blueberries, a “no spray” farm west of Eugene. He established organic certification the next year. Two years later, Royal Blue Organics branched out into the coffee business when we purchased organic green coffee from the ISMAM cooperative’s first commercial crop. The coffee and blueberry offices coexisted at the blueberry farm until the winter of 1993, when our coffee office moved to the roasting facility across town.
While coffee is our main business focus, the organic blueberry farm is still an important part of what we do and who we are. The blueberry season runs from late June through mid-August. If you are ever in Eugene in the early summer months, make sure to visit a local natural food store or the weekly Saturday Market to get the best and biggest organic blueberries in town. Blueberries are only available locally in Eugene, fresh in-season and frozen out-of-season. For more information, please visit our Royal Blueberries website.
