Morrill Mountain Fruit Farm in South Strafford, Vermont grows the blueberries, currants, and raspberries used to make Nanarella’s Fruit Pâte. These chewy, melt in your mouth, one-inch squares bring traditional French Pâte de fruit to Vermont. You can save the airfare and still savor the experience.
The farm was founded in 2006 on the base of Morrill Mountain's North slope to honor the memory of Nanarella’s son, Dana who loved berries. As a family, they spent many hours picking, eating and enjoying delicious time together. Nanarella’s Fruit Pâte is Nanarella’s way to share the love experienced on those berry-good days.

About Our Blueberries
We grow four varieties of blueberries on the foot of Vermont's Morrill Mountain. Patriot and North Country are medium-large, sweet with a succulent blueberry taste. Low Bush is related to those sought after wild berries, and Little Giant is a hybrid that combines the size and flavor of wild berries on a tall bush.
Each variety has unique characteristics, all very flavorful.
We combine them to blend blueberry flavors that give us the most succulent flavor in Nanarella's Fruit Paté.
