Current Picking Status (updated 7/07/15)
Our sandy soil drains quickly, and our fields and roads have dried. Weather permitting, we will be open on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday this week from 8a-1p and 4p-8p for sale of PYO raspberries and PYO blueberries.
Strawberries: We are no longer taking order for pre-picked strawberries. Our latest variety, Valley Sunset, needs a couple more days to ripen; we anticipate picking those for just the second time starting early this next week.
Raspberries: We will have good supplies on Tuesday, and even more coming early this next week, and then throughout July. Price of PYO raspberries is $5.00/pint, but if you pick 5 pints or more, the price is $4.50/pint.
Blueberry: We will have our first picking on Tuesday. Fruit is of excellent quality, through ripening is a bit scattered. Price is $3.00/pint, but if you pick 5 pints or more, the price is $2.50 a pint, or $25 for a 5 quart bucket.
Our raspberry and blueberry crops this year are among the best we have ever seen, and the picking will be easy. Prepare to bring your friends!
Picking conditions change daily due to weather and crop availability, so please check here or by calling our phone number at 651-433-3448 to confirm that we're open. Weather and crop permitting, we anticipate being open this week Mon-Fri 8am-1pm, Tues-Wed-Thurs from 4pm-8pm, and Sat-Sun from 8am-2pm.

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!
