Welcome to Blue Fruit Farm!

 

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.

June 2018 Update

June is a beautiful time at Blue Fruit Farm. We have pruned, weeded and done a lot of pest monitoring and management this Spring and our fruit is plump from all the rain. We started harvesting honeyberries on May 31, and aside from some smaller plants that are a later variety, honeyberry harvest is over.  We just saw our first elderberry rust and will be monitoring weekly - we effectively control rust by pruning the affected stem and carefully put in bag for disposal. Then we clean our pruners with hydrogen peroxide to prevent spreading the spores. Juneberries and next, with black currants and blueberries starting in early July. We are hosting a Farmstead Camp tour for kids on June 20.
