Welcome to Ter-Lee Gardens
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.
Vegetables are sold at Bemidji Area Farmers Market in Bemidji or from the farm on a pre-order basis, in season (view our Vegetable Calendar).
We only sell what we grow!
spring, Spring, SPRING!! And ASPARAGUS!
Wow, spring has really sprung so far this year. We never know what to expect from year to year, but this has been quite a surprise, at least up until recently. We thought we might have an earlier-than-normal harvest season, but now we are not quite so sure.
Asparagus (NOW harvesting!) is the first crop that ripens, which is usually around Mother's Day or later. (We did start before Mother's Day, but then abruptly stopped with the cold weather.) Then there are the strawberries. We can't begin to venture a guess as to when they could be ready. The average is around July 4th, but this year, who knows? We have done lots of seeding and/or transplanting of vegetables in trays weeks and weeks ago already, and the plants are just waiting to go in the ground. Exciting times!!
Our plans for this spring and summer are pretty much the same as they have been in the past. We seem to be creatures of habit. There are a few new and intriguing varieties of veggies that we see are being introduced by various companies, so we'll give a few of those a try. And of course we still plan to do Farmers Market, as usual, with maybe a surprise or two with that.
We hope everyone had a restful winter, and now, along with us, is looking forward to a tasty and wonderful summer. If you have any questions for us at any time, feel free to contact us.
