Blueberry Picker Artifact at the Richmond Museum, Richmond

Image from Richmond Museum activity in Things to do in Richmond

Blueberries have been an important crop in Richmond as the soil is optimal for them. Many tools were created to make picking them easier.

Blueberries are one of the two dominant crops in Richmond (the other are cranberries) due to the Island's unique soil composition. To make picking them easier - especially for sale - many different tools were created to make it easier to harvest them such as this Blueberry Picker which scoops them off the branches and into the attached basket.
