Our farm, home to delicious strawberries and northern Minnesota’s finest vegetables, is located in north central Minnesota, Clearwater County, just south of Bagley and 20 miles north of the Headwaters of the Mississippi.
Our season begins with tender asparagus in May, hand-picked and sold direct from the farm. The purple tops show you the high sugar content of our tasty and healthy spears, and once you've tried asparagus this fresh, you'll join us for one of the most pleasant signs of spring!
Around late-June to early July, the farm is abundant with beautiful red, sweet, juicy strawberries. We provide pick-your-own and pre-picked strawberries. If you are making a special trip to the farm, please call to be sure: (218) 694-2934, or toll-free 1(800) 251-1689.
We only sell what we grow!
Wow, what a start to our 2013 season!! And what a difference a year makes! Last year things started popping in March, though April slowed that down a bit. This year, we didn't get rid of our snow until into May. But once that has happened, things have started progressing. But be aware, most everything looks to be on a delayed schedule for harvest.
Asparagus--that seems to be what is on everybody's mind currently. Though last year we started picking on May 1, this year it appears that we will probably start picking between the 3rd and 4th week of May. Strawberries--it is too early to tell, but I wouldn't expect any picking to happen until sometime after July 4th. (Last year we started June 23.) As of the 3rd week in May, we have finally started getting some potatoes and onions planted--this being a full month later than usual. So, you can understand the probability of a later harvest. HOWEVER, we do have our high tunnels for season extension, and there is some hope for onions, tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, and maybe a few other surprises, closer to a "normal" harvest time. We will just have to wait and see.
Besides the strawberries and asparagus sold off the farm, we will still be selling at the Bemidji Area Farmers Market in downtown Bemidji once the strawberries start. If you have any questions for us, we sure would be glad to hear from you.
May you all have a blessed Spring--and Summer!
