Fruit from our farm to your table
For recipes and canning and freezing information, we recommend:
The last 2 days for blueberry picking will be Friday & Saturday, July 22 & 23, from 8:00 am-12:00 noon - unless picked out, thunderstorms, etc. Please call 507-334-2226 the morning of your visit, or before leaving home if coming later in the morning.
Pick-your-own blueberries are sold by the pint and we provide picking containers; they are $4.00 per pint.
If the crop allows, we'll offer picked blueberries sometime during the season - check back here, sign up for emails and/or follow us on Facebook for updates.
6-8 is a good minimum age for picking blueberries. Blueberries ripen unevenly in clusters (as in the pictures) and fine-motor skills are needed to pick the ripe blueberries, leaving the rest to finish ripening. Children of all ages should be monitored and helped when picking.
Plan to sit or kneel on the ground part of the time, or bring a kneeler or a light stool to sit
on while picking; only some of our blueberries are tall enough to pick standing up.
Pick only the darkest blue berries that release easily at your touch.
If you have to tug, it's not ripe yet!
