What is Weeks Bay Plantation?
Weeks Bay Plantation is currently home to LA Berry Farms, a pick-your-own blueberry farm where you can come enjoy a rejuvenating outdoor experience while nabbing some amazing little-blue-fruit packed with anti-oxidants and touted as one of the top ten healthiest foods we can eat. Not only are the berries 100% organic, they are grown with proprietary high nutritional methods. The results? Some of the sweetest, most delicious blueberries in the south.
What is the WISP Foundation?
The mission of Weeks Bay Institute for Sustainable Organic Preservation (WISP) is to provide resources and educational opportunities that inform the public about the importance and benefits of organic farming and sustainable agriculture. Through media, seminars, workshops and field trips, we intend to create and promote a better understanding how growing organic foods, in a sustainable way, will improve our health, our economy and preserve that knowledge for future generations.
