For the rest of our picking season, we will send out an occasional email with our tentative schedule but we will always have the most up-to-date information on this website, our Facebook page and phone line, so always check those sources before leaving home. Weather and the amount of guests in the field can quickly change our schedule.
There is a change in directions to our field if you are coming east on Highway 96 from the direction of White Bear Lake. You will have to head south to Highway 12 in Mahtomedi and then east on 12 to Manning and then head north to Highway 96. As of now, one can still turn east onto Highway 96 from Manning, which will get you to our street, Mendel Road.
*** Allergy Alert: Bees may be in field. Lavender Oil used in growing our berries.
* We will provide picking buckets and cardboard flats for taking home your berries, but feel free to bring your own low stool to sit on.
* No pets please!
* Cash and checks accepted.
* Price: Blueberries are $4 per pound, which translates to about $22 to $25 per 5-quart bucket.
* Chill or freeze dry blueberries as soon as possible to maintain high nutritional value, quality and flavor. Bring a cooler with ice for your trip home, especially if you are going to enjoy the beautiful St. Croix Valley after picking.
