Asparagus season has started! We have fresh picked asparagus on the farm from 8am to 6pm Sunday-Friday. Our family loves it roasted in the oven with a little oil and seasonings. Follow our asparagus signs to 60687 205 Ave Dodge Center. Enjoy the first vegetable of the year!
Our 2018 strawberry season has come to a close. We do still have premium quality, delicious frozen strawberries available while they last (We have a good amount). 507-884-7246. You are the best customers and we thank you for supporting a local farm family and God's work in Congo (15% of profits) with your patronage!! Blessings to you! We had so many new customers this year and we hope you will come again next year for more great tasting, nutritious fruit!
God is good! As we scouted our field this morning, we checked one section of our farthest that did not get picked last week. Wow! We found lots of good sized to big berries with exceptional sweetness. So, we will open today (Sunday) for Upick and may have very limited supplies of prepicked berries available. It may be a little wet this morning, but the afternoon should be beautiful for picking. Of course, we still have frozen berries available this week while supplies last. Last chance! See you on the farm!
Today is likely the last day to get 2018 strawberries (8am to 6pm).Prepicked will be first come, first serve. Still nice berries to pick! We recommend picking in the morning as it will get hot this afternoon. We still have top quality frozen berries, but don't wait as they are going fast. We will open our stand in Kasson today, but not Owatonna. We will look at our fields on Sunday morning on the chance we might open for upick that day. Closed on Saturday for our Sabbath rest as usual. Thanks for supporting a local farm family!
Thursday we are open from 8am to 7pm for prepicked or Upick berries. Lots of people turned out yesterday to pick and raved about the size and quantity of berries in the field. Don't wait, as Friday will likely be our last day to be open. It will be a beautiful day today for picking. If you are short on time, we do have frozen berries available. We plan to open our Kasson stand today, but probably not Owatonna. See you on the farm. Thanks for being a hero and supporting a local farm family!!
We will be open from 8am to 7pm for Upick berries. The Lord continues to amaze us!! Big beautiful delicious berries are pouring out of the field today! Great day to come and pick and we have plenty of prepicked berries on the farm and in Kasson. Friday will likely be our last day to pick. Short on time? We have top quality frozen berries for sale on the farm. Our Kasson stand is open today, but not Owatonna today. Hurry to get delicious berries for 2018! See you on the farm.
Today we will be closed for Upick due to rain and ripening time. We do have a good number of prepicked flats of berries for sale on the farm today while they last. We will be open again tomorrow for Upick. We still have a varieties producing nice sized delicious berries, but the season will likely finish at the end of this week.
Our fields are looking better now that the rains have stopped! Upickers picked lots of beautiful delicious berries out of the fields yesterday. We are open today for Upick and prepicked berries on this perfect picking day! The season will be short so don't wait!! Our Kasson stand will be open and we will try to open our Owatonna stand. So many other berry farms had crop failures that people have been buying berries as fast as we can pick them. We feel blessed to still have nice berries to pick! Come early in the week if you want to be sure to get berries.
Early season heat and recent excess rain has greatly shortened the strawberry season! It will end later this week, with the best picking early in the week. We still have lots of nice fruit in the fields, but you have to sort through some spoiled fruit. This morning will be excellent weather for picking but there is a chance of rain in the afternoon. We will also have prepicked berries on the farm and will try to open a stand in Kasson (but not Owatonna) as our own picking crew is smaller on Sunday. Don't miss your chance to get strawberries for 2018! Call if you have specific questions. 507-884-7247 or 46. Thanks for supporting a local farm family!
Today, Saturday June 23, we are closed all day for our weekly Sabbath rest. We will open Sunday morning at 8am. Blessings

Today we are open from 8am to 6pm for Upick or prepicked Strawberries. Sunshine returns today to make a perfect day for picking! Berries freshly rinsed by the Lord-but no mud thanks to the straw in the rows. Our Kasson (1 block south of stoplight) and Owatonna (26th St & Cedar Ave) will be open all day. This will be a shorter season-likely ending at the end of June so don't wait! Just a reminder that we are closed on Saturday for a Sabbath rest, but will open again Sunday morning at 8am.

Due to the all day rain today, we are closed for Upick today, however we expect to have a good amount of prepicked berries available today on the farm for sale! Our stands will be closed today. If you come in the afternoon, you may want to call ahead to see if there are still some prepicked berries left. We will be open tomorrow as usual-maybe the sun will shine! Thanks for supporting a local farm family!
We are open from 8 am to 7pm for prepicked or Upick berries. Still LOTS of berries in the field! Our best crop in years. The Lord washed and watered the berries through the night and they are ready for picking. No mud thanks to the nice straw between the rows. There is not much chance of rain through the remainder of this day, but should be nice and cool for picking! Remember that the season may be a bit short this year, so don't wait too long. We are now at the peak of the season!! Our Kasson stand and Owatonna stands will be open all day. Thanks for supporting a local farm family.
Still lots of ripe berries in the field and plenty of prepicked berries for sale! The Lord washed and watered them through the night, but no mud to pick in thanks to the nice layer of straw between the rows. There will be a small chance of showers today, but a nice cool day to do your picking. Our Kasson stand (on Mantorville Ave near stop light) and Owatonna stand (26th and Cedar NW will be open today. Our asparagus is now sold out for the season, but we still have our honey for sale.
Although it is a little drippy until 9 or 10 this morning, we are open for upick or prepicked berries til 7pm. Cool and cloudy weather is great picking weather compared to the last three days of heat! No mud as you'll be on a nice layer of straw. We have LOTS AND LOTS of ripe berries to pick after the last 3 days, so even though it's early, we are at the peak of the season. Our season may only last 2 1/2 weeks due to the warm temps, so don't wait to get your berries. Kids have been having so much fun watching our black lab Ebby fetch her ball and lots of families came out yesterday for father's day. We plan to open both the Kasson and Owatonna stands today.
This is our best crop in years and many people picked over 30 pounds on Friday! After 2pm today will be quite warm with a chance for rain, so come early if you can. Prepicked or Upick is open today from 8am to 7pm. There is a nice layer of straw between the rows, so don't worry about mud. Make great family memories today by coming with Dad to the strawberry farm! Pick berries together, take pictures, have fun! Then, take home great nutritious food for strawberry shortcake or just fresh eating. Our Kasson stand will be open today. Thank you so much for supporting a local farm family!!! Asparagus is still available along with rhubarb, home grown honey and lettuce.
We will open Friday June 15 for uPick and prepicked strawberries at 8am. Right now the big beautiful king berries are ripening so you get nice big berries, but the number of ripe berries is fewer than it will be starting on Sunday (we are closed Saturday). Why not make unforgetable family memories on father's day by coming out with Dad to pick strawberries on the farm!! We provide the containers and families are welcome! We have the best crop we have had in years, but the warm weather will shorten the season to about 2 1/2 weeks. We hope to open (no guarantee) our Kasson and Owatonna stands starting on Friday also.
Thank you for supporting a family owned and run farm!

This year's strawberry crop looks great! We are sure to open by Friday the 15th for Upick and prepicked. However, if enough berries are ripe on Thursday, we will open then! If we don't open Thursday, we will have at least limited supplies of prepicked berries.
You can support a local farmer by buying delicious home grown strawberries. Be a hero! This is a family business-not a big corporation. Hope to see you soon on the farm.

We could open for strawberries as early as June 14 or 15-but check before coming! For sure by father's day!
We are looking at a very nice crop this year. Our consultant tells us our fields look as good as any in the state. Our new drip irrigation allows us to water whenever the plants need it, so we hope to offer the best strawberry picking in the Rochester area.
We will still have asparagus for about 1 more week!
See you soon on the farm!
