It’s been a fantastic year for blueberries. We are down to the last days of the season, but will not be open for picking on Sunday. There will be one more chance for you to pick some berries for a pie on Monday morning. Hours will be from 8 to 11:00 AM. There are some overripe berries, but still enough firm ones to make it worth your while. We are scheduling one day at a time, so beyond Monday please call our hotline: 763-421-4384. The price for P.Y.O blueberries is $3.95 per pound, but we do discounts of boxes filled with 5 # or more. Our blueberry season usually lasts about 3 weeks, and we are now nearing the end of week three. Keep this in mind: we strive to provide fresh local berries to our customers, but entertainment is not our mission. It takes time and patience to pick blueberries because of their size. Come prepared to stoop, bend, reach and pick. Local food is not always perfect, but it is always fresh.
PAYMENT: Plan to pay with cash or check. We are not set up to accept credit/debit cards.
CHILDREN’S POLICY : For the end of the season, we have lowered the age limit for children to 5 years old. Parents, please keep in mind that if you bring children to get the experience of picking, that you will need to carefully monitor their activity. When children tire of the picking, then it is time to go. We have noticed that when parents come with their children for this wonderful experience, it is very difficult to pick a lot of berries. If your children are younger than 5, you may want to check some of the other blueberry patches in the Metro area that may be more able to accommodate families. Thank you for understanding.
Updated: July 24th, 2016 The first corn is now nearly ready for harvest. We just had our first corn tonight and decided it is ready to harvest. We will have corn for sale on Monday beginning at 10 AM and going until the wagon load is empty.
