We help you create memories!

Firefly Berries

Welcome to Firefly Berries! We are Southeast Minnesota’s premier pick-your-own berry farm specializing in strawberries, raspberries, and Concord grapes. We are located just east of Rochester in southeast Minnesota.

Whether it is your first time picking your own fruit, or you are an experienced gardener, your time with us at Firefly Berries will be a treasured memory– a fruit-filled adventure you’ll want to repeat over and over!

At this time we offer six different fruits. For complete information on all the produce and products we offer, simply click on the “Our Produce” link at the top of this page.

**Strawberries have ended, but Raspberries are scheduled to begin Tuesday, July 7!  Please read the “picking conditions” below and check our “Directions & Hours” page for complete information on picking times.  Or just give us a call at 507-252-1309 for up-to-date picking information!

 

Current Picking Conditions

Looks like raspberry season will be ending sooner than we originally anticipated! Tuesday, July 21 will be our last day of picking.  The berries are lighter, but if you just need a few or want a little fun with family, come on out! We will start at 3 pm and go until 7 pm or until we pick all the ripe berries.  If you can't come until later in the picking time, be sure to give a call before getting in your car to confirm that we still have berries available to be picked (252-1309).

Spring has sprung, and we are back with regular Knit in Nature Nights out at the farm twice a month!  Join us for some fun, fellowship, and fulfilling a good cause all at the same time! All nights run from 6-9 pm, rain or shine.  Knock or ring the doorbell at the house if you don't see anyone in the backyard! Here are the upcoming dates:

  • Monday, July 6
  • Monday, July 20

When I look at the calendar it is hard to believe that we are already over half way through the month of July.  I say it every year, but where does the summer go?  For us, our days have been spent picking berries, planting, tilling, weeding and helping customers.  It’s amazing how quickly those jobs…
