Dr. Barney, or as his friends call him, “Mr. Huckleberry”, has done some extensive research on the huckleberry and bilberry agricultural industry. He is connected with the University of Idaho’s College of Agriculture and Life Sciences. Most of his work has been conducted at the Sandpoint (Idaho) R & E Center.
The research done at the Sandpoint Center includes studying the various types of huckleberries and bilberry grown in various parts of the country; growing huckleberries and bilberries; huckleberry and bilberry research at the University of Idaho; and managing forest stands of huckleberries and bilberries.
