CONCORD GRAPE SEASON ENDS EARLY!! Earlier today (September 26) I posted that I thought we’d be open until the coming weekend, but after a day of dedicated grape lovers picking what they could find in the vineyard, we are out of grapes! Effective today, Firefly Berries will be closed for the season. Back on May 13 we experienced a hard freeze of 27 degrees and though we knew we had loss in the vineyard, it did not truly become apparent to us until this past week how great that loss was. The extensive rain we’ve had this season caused the vines to put on a lot of leaf growth, which hid the lack of grapes underneath. As always, we thank you for your patronage and we look forward to seeing you again in 2017!
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!
Our first fruit of the 2016 season will be strawberries, which we anticipate starting sometime in mid June.
Summer 2016 hours: We are no longer open with regular hours, as we do not have you pick fruit available. Once grapes are ready in late September/early October we will once again have regular hours. Check back when it gets closer to learn more about those times.
