Berry Hill Farm

6510 185th Ave NW, Anoka, MN 55303

At Berry Hill Farm they pride themselves on growing top quality strawberries, as well as other delicious produce, for you to go and select and pick.

“Here at the Berry Hill Farm we have strawberries, raspberries, and rhubarb during the summer season. Tentative schedule for strawberries is from approximately middle of June to the beginning of July. Raspberries are typically in season from early July to the middle of July. Rhubarb is ready to be picked around mid-May, but we will also pick through the strawberry season.  Please remember that these dates are approximate.

Berry Hill fields are open during the spring and summer seasons so you can pick your own fresh strawberries. Middle of June typically marks the beginning of berry season but weather dictates actual dates.

Here’s an idea, instead of picking up your berries at the grocery store or farmer’s market, how about picking them from the patch yourself or with your family? One of the best ways to enjoy fresh summer produce is to pick-your-own – simply pay for the cost of your pick and enjoy the season’s best fruits.  We accept cash or check.”

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 joy of berry picking. Sampling in the field is permitted, too!
