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.”

For size, we grow 11 kinds, and they are different shapes and sizes.  The first picking is the king, which is the largest, but there aren’t as many of them.  After that comes the queen and her court, which grow in good clusters.  We always give you the best row that is available when you arrive, but that can change by the hour and day. ”

Firefly Berries – Strawberry Picking Minnesota

5542 23rd St NE, Rochester, MN 55906

Firefly Berries is a family run farm that grows delicious organic fruit for you and your family to pick.

“We believe very strongly in not only providing quality fruit, but also taking care of the soil and the planet. Because of this we do not spray any chemicals anywhere on our farm. We are not certified organic, but we grow in an organic and sustainable manner– using cover crops, crop rotation, green manure and natural compost to keep the soil healthy.

Strawberries are the most popular fruit we grow, and they are available as both we pick and you pick.

We currently grow two varieties of June-bearing strawberries. What is a June-bearing strawberry you may ask? It is a strawberry that produces one heavy crop of strawberries throughout the year, and that crop is produced during a 2-3 week period in June. This is in contrast to “everbearing” strawberries, which produce smaller crops throughout the growing season. The climate in Minnesota is most ideal for the June-bearing varieties, so that is what we choose to grow.”

We have been a certified organic farm since 2013.  In 2017 we purchased 40 acres of Finke’s Berry Farm when they retired. The Finke’s have been a Carlton County tradition for over thirty years and they have perfected the art of growing Strawberries in a respectful and sustainable way. We are working closely with the Finke’s to make sure that we continue their tradition in the manner that their loyal customers have come to expect.

We use no insecticides, fungicides or convention fertilizers.  Our weed control consists of a small flock of Geese that we use to keep down grasses in the strawberry field and a small legion of dedicated workers that scour the fields for invading weeds.”
