Additional Information

Description

John's Blueberries as founded in the early 90's as a way to fund summer camp expenses and grew into a successful small business with clients in Maine and NH.  We have practiced organic complient methods since the early 2000's with minimal input nutrients other than seaweed, mulch, and on-site compost.  Removal of pests has been by hand  .Lovingly maintained cape in the heart of South Dover overlooking local athletic fields, within walking distance of Garrison school and just minutes from downtown Dover. Current owner has lived in the home over 40 years keeping current with home updates and creating a backyard any green thumb could appreciate. Built in 1975, this cape cod style home features a large two car garage with ample storage above, and a breezeway connecting it to the main home. The floorplan offers an easy natural open flow from room to room with a flexible layout allowing for many possibilities including a first floor bedroom. The brightest room of the house is designed to allow sun to pour in with floor to ceiling windows. Upstairs there are front to back bedrooms with great knee wall storage as well as another full bathroom. The backyard needs to be seen to truly appreciate. Raspberry and blueberry bushes, varieties of grapes, apple and kiwi trees, raised beds, garden beds and a variety of flowers ensure that something will be bloom each week of the season.

Soil has been improved in the growing areas, but is overall well drained and sandy and matches the soil map.  Sigifigant plant matter only composting has occured on site (and large compost area remains) and this has been plowed back into the growing areas signifigantly increasing the soil quality.  The property is reasonably flat but slopes up to the wood lot at the back of the site.  Once slopped up the primary wooded area is also very flat with a steep drop off where it meets city land on the other side.  As noted this is mostly a pine forest.  Trees are a mixture of ages with some a maximum of ~60 years old due to a major weather event in the 50/60's that leveled most of the older trees in the area.  There are a couple older suger maple trees on site that have never been tried for syrup production.
