A small, round, edible blue-black berry related to the blueberry; the low-growing North American shrub (genus Gaylussacia) of the heath family that bears this fruit.
Well, that’s the literal definition. Around our farm, we have a second definition that we use. A huckleberry means “the exact kind of person needed for a particular purpose”. The “Historical Dictionary of American Slang” has about a a column of citations documenting this meaning all through the latter 19th century. So “I’m your huckleberry” means “I’m just the person you’re looking for!”
Over the years, as we’ve grown our farm, we’ve had to learn a lot and forge partnerships with other professionals, organizations and businesses. We consider all of them our “huckleberrys” and value what their goods, services, knowledge and support have done to get us to where we are today. Here they are (and the list keeps growing):
