Current Picking Status (updated 6/27/16)
Our 2016 strawberry season is at its peak! We have now had two full weeks of very good picking. Thanks to all who have helped us pick literally tons and tons of strawberries so far!
The Berry Patch will be CLOSED on Tuesday June 28 (both morning and evening) to allow us to irrigate our fields.
If we have already confirmed your order for picked berries on Tuesday, we will have those ready for you to pick up. We plan to be re-open on Wednesday but please check back on Tuesday night or Wednesday morning before coming to the farm.
Weather and crop conditions do change, so always check our "Special Notes" below before coming to the farm. But weather and crop permitting, our typical hours are:
Tues-Wed-Thur evenings 4p-8p (starting next week)
Price is $2.35/lb.; picking containers are provided. Come and pick with us!
We are also taking orders for picked berries. Call us at 651-433-3448 to place your order, and we will call you back to confirm your order. Price is $26 for a flat of 12 pints, or approximately 9-10 lbs of fruit.
Raspberry picking will begin this next week; blueberries are farther away, with harvest starting in early July.

Who we are
The Berry Patch is one of the oldest fruit growing operations in the east Metro area. From mid-June to mid-August, we provide our customers with pick-your-own and picked strawberries, raspberries and blueberries. We pride ourselves on offering high quality fruit in a family friendly setting.
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 pleasure of berry picking. (Yes, sampling in the field is permitted too!)
Our picking varies with the weather. Strawberries are typically available for a 3-4 week period from mid-June to early July. Raspberries typically start around the 4th of July, and run through the end of July. Blueberries start in late June or early July, and are available for 5-6 weeks, ending in mid-August. It’s always wise to call us at 651-433-3448 to confirm crop availability due to weather and customer demand.
We look forward to seeing you at The Berry Patch this season!
