Due to the busy and stressful way of life and work, we wanted to spend the rest of our free time in recreation and socializing with children and family in the fresh air in nature. In doing so, we were thinking of producing healthy food where all the care of the same is done manually because we do not own any agricultural machinery. Thus, the decision fell on blueberries and aronia, and in 2012. our OPG Ruzic was founded. We started with a small number of blueberries and each year we expanded as much as our finances allow.
Since blueberries are seasonal fruits that last only a month and a half, we thought about what crop could still come in the summer after blueberries. And that’s where the story with hazelnuts begins as an ideal complement and interest during the fall time because it is not an easily perishable food item, it can be stored and we can offer it throughout the year.
From this year, we started participating in various fairs, so besides our fine fresh blueberries, we have to have an assortment throughout the year, and so we slowly start to produce aronia and blueberry juices, blueberry and plum jams with no sugar, various jams and of course peeled and fried hazelnuts.
I think the most important of all is to mention that our production of blueberries and hazelnuts is pesticide-free and that we are under ENVIRONMENTAL CONTROL. Our motto is: “ProteOur story of healthy, sweet and fine big blueberries and hazelnuts is not over yet.
