Give the gift of handmade with little ceramic serving bowls and add in yummy chocolate covered blueberries from Grand Haven’s very own Blueberry Haven.
Tiffany Balk came up with the idea to start Blueberry Haven while driving back home to Grand Haven, Michigan from a vacation in Canada. She wanted to send someone a gift and wondered what it should be. Why not send a gift of Michigan cherries, her husband suggested. Balk thought to herself, “Why not blueberries?” After all, southwest Michigan produces 44 percent of the blueberries on the U.S. market. After much thought, Blueberry Haven was finally born in 2007.
This single idea led to the opening of Blueberry Haven in 2007 and the creation of an evolving line of delicious blueberry products including popular items like Blueberry Haven’s chocolate covered blueberries, blueberry salsa, as well as blueberry jams and spreads, blueberry sauces, baking mixes, blueberry beverages, and home goods.
In 2011, Blueberry Haven opened its first storefront on the quaint, lakeside main street of downtown Grand Haven, Michigan.
