  • 2018 season up and running

    Brambling Rows is bursting with activity…finally. It was a long time coming this spring as we had such a long winter.
    We are open Mondays – Saturday 11:00 – 5:00 Until the berries start, then our hours will change. That should be about the first week of July.
    Right now, we have our heirloom tomato and pepper bedding plants available for sale plus kale, broccoli and cabbage. We still have our “Instant Gardens” available as well. Those are our tomato plants planted in a 5 gallon pot that have ripening tomatoes on already. We have a slicer and a variety of cherry tomatoes available in the 5 gallon pot. We also have pepper plants in 1 gallon pots with peppers on already.
    Right now our Asparagus is going wild!!! It is beautiful. We also have our famous “Godsend” lettuce and green onions. Our employees are busy getting grapes pruned and starting to plant our produce in the fields – the cold weather crops. We never know when we might get that late Minnesota frost:(
    Our products are available at the field and at three Farmers Markets.
    Field: 7664 Roscoe RD Brainerd, MN
    Markets:
    Thursdays – American Legion – Nisswa Farmers Market Nisswa, MN
    Lakes Area Growers Market
    Fridays – Viking Land Harley Davidson Parking Lot Baxter, MN
    Tuesdays – Franklin Arts Center Parking Lot Brainerd, MN
    All market’s hours are: 8:00 -12:30

    Sorry, but we are no longer selling our plants at the Brainerd Ace Hardware. We just ran out of enough hours in the day to be able to provide them there anymore.

    Hope to see you this season. Hope you are all having a great day- everyday!!!

  • Hello Spring 2018

    Wow, can’t believe that our growing season is about to embark in the fields. We already have tomatoes, peppers, lettuce and green onions growing in the greenhouses. We welcomed spring in already yesterday although it snowed all day:):):) So typical of our lovable Minnesota!!!
    We’ve had the annual meetings for both of the Farmers Markets we attend. Opening days are as follows:
    Nisswa Farmers Market, Nisswa MN. Thursday, May 10th
    Lakes Area Growers Market:
    Viking Land Harley Davidson, Baxter, MN. Friday, May 11th
    Franklin Arts Center, Brainerd, MN. Tuesday, May 15th
    Hours for all markets: 8:00 – 12:30
    Make sure to attend to get your bedding plants for the season. We will have our Heirloom Tomato varieties – slicers, canners and cherry, bell peppers and hot peppers, broccoli, cabbage, kale, etc. Don’t forget we save our own seeds for our Heirloom tomatoes and peppers so you can raise the hardiest for our area and the biggest and best!
    Besides our bedding plants, we will also have green onions and our “Godsend” lettuce available and jams, jellies and piccalilli on our opening days at the markets.
    The following is a picture of one of the first tomato blossoms. There are many more at this time. Can’t wait for that first BLT!!!!!


  • Seasons over for 2017

    We would like to thank all of you that were able to make it out to the field, to Ace Hardware for plants, to any one of three markets we are a vendor at or any of the Christmas shows we attended this year and any businesses that ordered our products.
    Alas, all we have are some of our jams, jellies and piccalilli to sell until spring. Make sure to call 218-838-3954 or 218-838-3044 to place an order. Remember, we must hand deliver any orders or they must be picked up by the buyer or an associate of theirs. We can not ship our jams, jellies or piccalilli ourselves. If an associate of yours picks it up, they can ship it to you. Go figure……
    We pray for a safe, healthy and enjoyable winter for you all.
    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year,
    John & Ruth


  • Fall season

    Well, fall has definitely set in for us. We have had two rather hard frosts and that put an end to our berries except for our grapes. They will last for a short time yet. There are still many on the vines and they are super sweet.
    This is our last week for any Farmers Markets as well. Won’t be back to them until next May.
    We do not have regular hours this time of the year although we will have some produce available at least through the month of October. At this time, we have slicing tomatoes, bell peppers, hot peppers, daikon radishes and lettuce.
    Make sure to call to place an order or to set up an appointment for picking grapes or picking up some produce.
    218-838-3954 or 218-838-3044.
    Will let you know when we are officially done for the season.
    Thanks much!!!!


  • GRAPES! GRAPES! GRAPES!

    That’s right, we have many many U-pick grapes that are ready right now!  This week should be the peak and they are ready for wine making.  Just $1.00 per pound.

    They are the Valiant grape and are good for jelly, jam, juice and wine making.  We hand out a copy of a very good/easy grape juice recipe.

    We are open Monday – Saturday 11:00 – 5:00 during the fall picking season.

    We also have Fall Raspberries and Fall Strawberries that are ready for picking.

    Follow us on Facebook as well for any updates.

    Thank!

  • Fall 2017

    We have fall strawberries! Of course, the Drosophila Fruit Fly has set into them, if you want to come to pick and be very careful and selective, there are berries that have not been infested yet. I ask you to pick the good and bad in separate containers at a reduced rate and we furnish the containers.

    We have fall raspberries to pick also. We get $4.00 for a quart of raspberries and we furnish the containers. We are open 11:00 – 5:00 Monday – Saturdays during picking season but aren’t picking everyday if we’ve been picked out. I announce on Facebook when we are picking or you can call 218-838-3954 to make sure.

    Grapes will still be the first week of September as far as we can guess at this time.
    John is still attending all 3 markets:
    Tuesdays – Franklin Arts Center – Brainerd
    Thursdays – Nisswa Farmers Market (American Legion Parking Lot) – Nisswa
    Friday – Viking Land Harley Davidson Parking Lot – Baxter
    Hours for all markets 8:00-12:30

    He has been taking our fresh lettuce, tomatoes, daikon radishes, cucumbers, garlic, green beans, Italian Romano beans, bell peppers, cabbage, jams and jellies and piccalilli.
    Don’t forget to get your orders in for canning tomatoes for canning season. We are still growing and offering our heirloom tomatoes. We also have kraut cabbage available to order. Please call 218-838-3044 or 218-838-3954.

    Thanks and have a great day!


  • Berry Update

    Just want to let you all know that the Drosophila Fruit Fly has set into the summer raspberries. Right now, if you want to come to pick and be very careful and selective, there are berries that have not been infested yet, and you can have them for nothing. Just bring your own containers.
    We still have blueberries to pick and the fly has never gotten into them. They are too busy reproducing in the raspberries:(. We get $4.00 for a quart of blueberries and we furnish the containers. We are still maintaining 9:00 – 5:00 Monday – Saturdays for hours during picking season.
    Strawberries will be starting a little earlier than other years. I will announce that when it happens.
    Grapes will still be the first week of September as far as we can guess at this time.
    John is still attending all 3 markets:
    Tuesdays – Franklin Arts Center – Brainerd

    Hours for all markets 8:00-12:30
    He has been taking our fresh lettuce, tomatoes, daikon radishes, cucumbers, garlic, green beans, snap peas, bell peppers, jams and jellies and piccalilli so far. Won’t be long and snap peas and kohlrabi will be added to the list. We will also have garlic bulbs available soon.
    Don’t forget to get your orders in for canning tomatoes for canning season. We are still growing and offering our heirloom tomatoes.


  • Berry Time!

    My goodness, how time flies. Just got reminded by a customer that our website needs an update!
    Raspberries and Blueberries are starting to come in. Please like us on Facebook to get a more accurate update – Brambling Rows Berry Farm.
    We open at 9:00 a.m. on picking days and will pick until picked out. If you want to check to see if there are berries before you come out later in the day, call: 218-838-3954.
    Quarts of either berry are $4.00 and we furnish the containers.
    We are going to try avoid being open on Sundays this season if the berries allow that luxury for us. There may be some that we are forced into being open if the supply says that we need to be. We would be open 2:00 – 5:00 on Sundays if that is the case.
    We are hoping for a good season. There are many berries on the canes and if we can keep the ripe berries picked, maybe we can avoid the Spotted Winged Drosophila Fruit Fly invasion this year at least for a while.
    Hope to hear from you. Thanks for your patronage.
