Raspberries
In 2013, the raspberry patch was infested with an
insect new to Minnesota called
Spotted Wing
Drosophila
or SWD for short.  We had to close the
patch while we worked on methods to manage this
new pest & continue to raise raspberries.

The 2014 season is still in question - w
e are
monitoring for SWD and haven't spotted them at our
farm yet (they have been found elsewhere in the
state), but there won't be enough raspberries to open
for pick-your-own.  This year's crop of raspberries, if
they stay SWD free, will go to Farmers' Markets.



Thank you for your interest, your business, and your
understanding.
