• Early Spring – 2014

    11-2013 - 3-22-2014 082

    Just want to share some pictures of our blossoming tomatoes in the greenhouse and then what it looks like outside.

    It will be awhile before anything gets planted in the fields!!

    11-2013 - 3-22-2014 077 I’m having problems loading all of the pictures I was going to post.  My “Computer Guru” will fix the problem for me and the rest should get posted within a few days. The thermometer reads 110.1 by the way.  We cooled off in a hurry, when we stepped outside the door in the 12 degree weather!

    Well, finally got some more downloaded.  You can see Farmer John working in the Swiss chard bed.  You can also see what it looks like outside of the greenhouses.  We have gotten more snow since this picture was taken and another storm on the way tomorrow, Sunday, March 30th.  The hydroponic lettuce is  growing quite well and is much taller than it was in this photo now.  We really do hope to have some better weather soon.  We just have to take what we get :(



  • Winters almost over!

    Just wanted you to know that we haven’t been hibernating.  There is a light at the end of the tunnel.  What a winter this year!  Just like the ones we remember when we were kids.

    The tomatoes and peppers are started and the greenhouses will be fired up eventually.  We usually get the heat started on March 1st.  Not this winter though – John has been needing to go over to clean the driveway out at the field about every 3 or 4 days and the greenhouse roof is covered with snow yet.  Yikes, surely hope it warms up soon.  It has been such a struggle in this area this year just to heat homes.  We hope the good Lord will be good and help us to raise our products before the growing season is over!

    Looking forward to another successful year of growing and supplying you with some good healthy goodies!

     

    Tomatoes & Peppers – waiting to be  transported to the greenhouse.

  • Heirloom Canning Tomatoes

    Give us a call to get on the list for our variety of heirloom canning tomatoes. Weather has warmed up and the field tomatoes are ripening. Don’t forget that we also have our heirloom greenhouse tomatoes and greenhouse lettuce. Our fall raspberries are going now and the fall strawberries. We must take appointments for them as they take longer to ripen. We have a call list for them as well. Enjoy what there is left of summer!!!!!



  • 2013 Berry Season

    We are still picking raspberries and have some blueberries available for picking. We do not pre-pick except for a few small containers that John takes to the markets. “Sorry” Strawberries should start about August 15th. If any earlier, I will post on the website and the Brambling Rows Berry Farm facebook page. Our grapes are looking great this year (Knock on wood) and they should be ready about the first week of September. Remember, they are a good juice, jelly, and wine grape. We hand out a great “Easy” grape juice recipe. If using GPS or phone please remember the address of the farm is 7664 Roscoe Road, Brainerd, Minnesota. Call for appointments. Thanks much!



  • RASPBERRIES HAVE STARTED TO RIPEN

    Raspberries have started but we won’t be open until July 22nd to the public. We should have raspberries through out the fall as our summer berries are late (due to the cool spring) and the falls aren’t far behind. Call when you want to come to see what the availability is at the time. Hope to see you!
