Check back often as our picking season grows near as we'll post our updates right here! We lost a lot of the first blossoms that were open to the freeze in mid-May.  However, the newer buds that are opening are looking really good and it appears that the frost damage wasn't as bad as we initially thought! We are counting down the days to picking!

We make it our goal to have the best picking conditions in the area.  We are family friendly and are passionate about locally raised products. 

2019 Berry Season Will Begin Shortly! 

We are anticipating a year of picking, similar to last year. Due to some environmental issues and such, out of our control, we are going to have a year like last year. We have been able to snack on a few ripe berries already and they are gorgeous and delicious, the picking just won't be as "phenomenal" as what it's been other years. We expect to be open the last weekend of June but please confirm before coming! Facebook will be the best place for updates, as well as calling. 

Please note that the previous phone number of 218-829-9084 is no longer in use (it was a land line) so please use either of the cell phones listed under the contact us. 

There is no better berry than one enjoyed as soon as its picked! We will pick for you if you aren't able to pick for yourself! Berries are picked and then refrigerated for the best quality we can provide.
