Southern Belle Organics
Whiteville, North Carolina
Brick Rooks first worked on a blueberry farm as a teenager, enjoying life outside and the responsibility the job entailed. Later, while earning his degree in Quantitative Economics, he realized that office life was not for him. Brick returned to the land, starting his own blueberry farm in the town of Whiteville, North Carolina. He and his wife, Jennifer Blackmon Rooks, named it Southern Belle Organics. As a young first generation farmer, and a self-proclaimed perfectionist, Brick is heavily involved in all aspects of production (growing, shipping, and packing) on the 60 plus acres of land. Southern Belle Organics currently offers certified organic blueberries from May through September, but Brick hopes to expand to blackberries, strawberries, and other fruits in the future.
