Picking Update (updated July 21, 2019)
Friends of The Berry Patch
We will be closed on Monday, but intend to be open on Tue-Wed-Thur-Fri from 8a-1p, and Sat and Sun from 8a-2p. We are also planning to be open Wed and Thur evenings from 4-8p.
Blueberries and raspberries are both plentiful and easy picking. We encourage you to come and pick!
Price of PYO raspberries is $5.00 for purchases of 1-4 pints, but if you pick 5 or more pints the price is $4.50 per pint. We expect the raspberry season to last another week or two.
Blueberry picking is especially good right now. Price of blueberries is $28 for a 5 quart ice cream pail, or $3.00/pint for individual pints.
We are now taking orders for picked raspberries and picked blueberries. Price of raspberries is $6.50 per pint, and price of picked blueberries is $33 per 5 quart pail, or $3.50 for individual pints. Call us at 651 433 3448 and leave your name, quantity and the day you want to pick them up. As you can imagine, raspberries take much longer to pick than strawberries (like 7 pints per hour for raspberries compared to 24+ pints per hour for strawberries), so we need more lead time and may need to limit the number of folks we can serve in a day, but we'll do our best.
We accept cash or check. (We can't accept credit cards because we're in a cell phone dead zone, we have difficulties getting a consistent cell signal). There is an ATM down the street at the gas station/convenience store.
Thank you for your interest in our farm. See you soon for strawberry and raspberry picking!
