COVID-19 Procedures

In light of the challenge presented by COVID-19, we are implementing the following safety procedures in order to keep our customers and employees safe, while also providing an enjoyable outdoor experience picking delicious blueberries.  Please look over the following safety measures before joining us in the field.  We appreciate your patience with us during this time as we continue to check with guidelines from the CDC, MN Department of Health, and MN Department of Agriculture in order to maintain a safe environment for all.  We look forward to seeing you in the field!

  • Stay home if you're feeling sick, have a fever, or a cough.
  • Maintain 6 feet of distance between distinct household groups and employees.
  • Wear a mask if you are not vaccinated.  If you do not have one they will be available to purchase under the tent before picking.
  • Wash hands before and after picking.
  • Handle only the food you will be purchasing (other than culled berries which will be fed to the chickens in order to prevent fruit flies in the field).
  • The MN Department of Agriculture discourages eating your berries before bringing them home and washing them.
  • We have put safe spacing markers in place to follow for your safety and that of others.

Alternate Picking Options

​1) Pre-picked Berries: 

If you are unable to join us in the field for picking you have the option to order berries for pick up one or more days in advance.  Depending on conditions in the field we may not be able to accommodate all orders. This option is very limited this season due to staffing shortages, requests will be considered on a one to one basis.  Please contact us at summer@blueberryfieldsofstillwater.comto inquire about pre-picked berries.

If you are wondering how many blueberries you want picked, here are the amounts needed for different recipes:

  • One Pound of Blueberries: 3 to 3.5 cups
  • Blueberry Pie: 4 cups of blueberries
  • ​Blueberry Muffins: 2 cups of blueberries

​​2) Evening Picking:

Occasionally we have evening picking sessions due to weather and the state of the berries.   Check our website to stay informed of our picking hours.  If you have special needs, please contact us via email at before coming to the field. We will discuss if and how we can assist you in meeting your needs.

COVID-19 procedures will continue to be in place during evening hours.
