Wild Blueberry Exchange

To post wild blueberry equipment that you are looking for or have for sale on our Wild Blueberry Exchange page, please send information to Mary Michaud, mary.j.michaud@maine.edu, with a description of the item, a contact name, telephone number and/or email address, along with your asking price. Also, please let us know when you have sold your equipment so we can remove your ad from our website.

IMPORTANT NOTICE:  There are many scams being perpetrated today and it would be prudent for each grower posting blueberry equipment for sale or wanted on our website to know who they are selling their equipment to and make sure checks received are legitimate before releasing any equipment.
