Who we are
The Berry Patch is one of the oldest fruit growing operations in the east Metro area. From mid-June to mid-August, we provide our customers with pick-your-own and picked strawberries, raspberries and blueberries. We pride ourselves on offering high quality fruit in a family friendly setting.
Our farm is a great destination for a family outing. We welcome well supervised children to our fields, as we want them to see how food is produced, and experience the pleasure of berry picking. (Yes, sampling in the field is permitted too!)
Our picking varies with the weather. Strawberries are typically available for a 3-4 week period from mid-June to early July. Raspberries typically start around the 4th of July, and run through the end of July. Blueberries start in late June or early July, and are available for 5-6 weeks, ending in mid-August. It’s always wise to call us at 651-433-3448 to confirm crop availability due to weather and customer demand.
We look forward to seeing you at The Berry Patch this season!
