Patricia DiVello is the daughter of Edward and May who were originally potato farmers on Long Island, New York. With humble beginnings, she now fills her 40 acre farm with over 24 different varieties of berries! Strawberries, blackberries, raspberries and blueberries grow alongside the endless fields of colorful blooms. The flower garden is not open for public picking like the berries but feel free to look around at our delicate jewels and working bees.
Fixing tractors and moving water pipes is nothing new for Patricia who has prospered in the male dominated line of work. It has not been easy by any means but she continues to work extremely hard along with her helpful team to make customers happy. When asked why did she decide on such a labor intensive career, Patricia responded, "It feels so rewarding when you see the little seeds you planted, watered and weeded grow into beautiful crops. It makes me happy knowing that my end product is on someone's table making them happy and working with my daughter to teach people about growing seasons on Long Island. I am also very thankful for my team who helps us see the season through every year!"
Patty's Berries and Bunches has been helping brides and florists across Long Island get quality flowers at realistic rates. They grow over 15 different types of blooms that are available from the end of May through October. Patty's abundant flowers and berries provide their busy bees with a fabulous source for their honey.
Patty's daughter Jennifer (designer and creator of Patty's Berries and Bunches branding. website, and signage) has recently pioneered Long Island's first farm fresh ice cream line with John Pastore.
