• 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.

  • 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.
