About Us

Millen Farms - Family-owned Sustainable Berry Farm - Canada Gap Certified -
Millen Farms is a family-owned sustainable berry farm nestled in the heart of Nova Scotia’s famed blueberry lands.

The Millen family farm, owned by Curtis and Ann Millen, almost 40 years ago in the Great Village area.

The operation, which involves the whole family, includes 150+ acres in strawberry and 600+ acres of wild native low bush blueberry. The farm is noted for its strawberries and wild blueberries. The strawberries are picked fresh each day, morning and evening. Most often they are delivered to the buyer straight from the field for freshness to the consumer.

Most of the wild blueberries are hand raked by about 175 hand rakers. The Millen’s firmly believe that hand harvesting their blueberries is the key to a better berry for consumers – less processing means blueberries that are closer to what you’ll find at harvest time. You can find the hand raked blueberries in the 5lb box or 1kg tub. Machine harvested blueberries can be found in the 1.5Kg and 600g bags.

We all need a sweet treat from time to time (especially at the end of a long week). Why not try this Wild Blueberry "Nice" Cream for dessert? You'll need: 4 firm, ripe bananas (chunked and frozen)1 cup wild blueberries, fresh or frozen 1. Put the frozen banana chunks in the blender (or food processor), along with the wild blueberries. Blend until smooth, making sure that you stop to scrape the sides from time to time. 2. Put in an airtight container and place in the freezer until frozen solid. 3. When you're ready to enjoy, pull out the container about 5 minutes before scooping, to ensure it softens slightly. 4. Enjoy! If you're adventurous, you could always try adding some different ingredients, like mint extract, vanilla, chopped nuts, other frozen fruits, and so much more! ... See MoreSee Less
