Blue Fruit Fest July 21 2018 3-9:00 pm. Click on Menu item Blue Fruit Fest for more info.

 

Located in beautiful southeastern Minnesota, Blue Fruit Farm covers 5 acres of certified organic blueberries, elderberries, aronia berries, black currants, blue plums, honey berries, jostaberries, juneberries, and cherry plums. Our farm overlooks a stunning microclimate known as Wiscoy Valley, surrounded by forest and native prairie. It allows our plants to benefit from the bountiful population of busy pollinators.

Because we have overhead netting for bird protection and hand harvest, our fruits can ripen naturally on the shrub. The fruits have minimal stems and leaves that we remove during packaging. 

We sell bulk in minimum orders of 5 lb boxes. If you wish to be notified when a specific fruit is in season, please provide your email address and check the boxes for the fruits you are interested in. We will let you know when the fruit is ripe. 

Please feel free to roam our website for more information about our fruit production and organic management. We will be continue to update our website with more information. If you need to call us, our farm phone number is 507-454-8310. But keep in mind we are often outside working in the orchard. 

Please note we are not a nursery and cannot sell planting stock. 

We can accomodate local deliveries in the Winona / Rochester area as well as the Twin Cities. You are also welcome to pick up your orders on the farm. Please email your order to Joyce at bluefruitfarm@gmail.com. We will email back to set up delivery or on-farm pick-up.

July 2018 Update

July is a beautiful time at Blue Fruit Farm. We started harvesting blueberries a week earlier than usual - due to the warm May and June weather. Yay! We love our blueberries. They are so delicious. July 3 we started harvesting black currants (Minaj variety first) with our new Waxwing harvester. We really hope it works well as it will save us hours and hours of hand picking. We also have a new fruit cleaner that removes leaves and other debris without damaging the fruit. We finished honeyberries in mid-June and harvested 178 lb - double from 2017. Our Juneberry harvest has been light. We are starting to see Japanese beetles for the first time and Katie is learning to squish them with her fingers! We are monitoring daily and have put up several traps with lures outside the fenced area. We are doing pretty good with other pest management. People who help us: Katie is a Winona native who has taken to our fruit farming this summer, and Zack, from Maryland, learning about fruit farming this summer.  They are both enthusiastic about hosting our Blue Fruit Fest on Juiy 21.
