Greetings!

We had a nice day of picking on Tuesday (yes, with a minor rain delay mid-morning).  Thanks to all who came to the farm!  Weather permitting we will be open on Wednesday morning from 8a-Noon for PYO raspberries, and limited harvest of PYO blueberries.

Please continue to use our website for the most up to date information on picking.  Likely due to storms this past weekend, we are experiencing phone difficulties. We are working with Frontier Communications to restore service and hope to have our voice mail system working again soon.  You can also follow us on FaceBook.  Thank you for your patience!

If we are forced to close due to weather we will update the messages on our phone line (651-433-3448), FaceBook and website as rapidly as possible.

Price of pick-your-own raspberries:

1-4 pints:   $5.25 per pint

5 or more pints: $4.50 per pint

Price of pick-your-own blueberries: 

1-4 pints: $3.50/pint

Picking containers are provided.

We will begin taking orders for picked raspberries next week on our phone answer line (651 433 3448) with picked blueberries available sometime after that. As volume of ripe fruit increases we will also offer evening picking hours.  More information on all of this to come.

We appreciate all of our strawberry customers who have picked with us this season, and hope to serve you next year with better production in June 2021.  

Regarding COVID-19, we are taking special care to provide a safe picking experience. First, we know that this virus is not transmitted by food and does not survive well in outdoor environments. We will accommodate physical distancing by ensuring at least 8 feet of distance between pickers in our fields. Our employees have been instructed to not come to work if they are not feeling well; they will wear masks when providing customer service and we encourage our customers to do the same. Handwashing stations are available in the field, and plexiglass sneeze guards are in our checkout shed. 

We ask our customers to maintain at least 6' of physical distance as they wait to be assigned rows and as they checkout. We also ask that, at least for this season, that very young children not be brought to the farm; we also ask that pets not be brought to the farm, or that they be left in a well ventilated vehicle while their owners are picking.
