You can’t beat the summers in Minnesota with the sunshine, all the outdoor adventures and extra time outside. One activity that has become a tradition for my girl and I is berry picking in Minnesota summer. From the thrill of the hunt to the sweet reward of fresh berries, it is a must do summer activity.

We often travel to many different berry farms over the Minnesota summer where my daughter loves the freedom to roam, explore and discover the hidden treasures among the berry bushes. 

There’s nothing quite like the satisfaction of plucking a ripe, juicy berry straight from the vine and popping it into your mouth. The sweet, sun-kissed flavors of freshly picked strawberries and berries are incomparable to store-bought varieties. It’s a delicious reward that we enjoy each and every time we visit one of our favorite berry farms. You can find a great list of berry farms in Minnesota on the Explore Minnesota website.

Over the years, by making this a tradition, we’ve enjoyed picking with friends and family making it an even more special occasion and one that we talk about often.

We love supporting our community farmers and getting the added benefit of the freshest produce. It’s also been a tasty way to try different kinds of berries and learn more about the growing seasons. 

Tips for a Berrylicious Adventure

  • Pick the Perfect Time: Plan to go in the early morning. But also check with local farms for the best times to pick strawberries and other berries.
  • Dress the Part: Opt for comfortable clothes, sun hats, and sturdy shoes. Don’t forget to apply sunscreen and pack insect repellent!
  • Respect the Farm: Always follow the farm’s guidelines regarding picking areas, payment methods, and any other rules.
