2020 was a year of preparation. The fields were cleaned. Our deer fence went up. Our irrigation system was installed. We amended the soils and built the berms for our blueberries.
2021 was the year of planting. In March, we successfully planted 6,000 blueberry bushes. These will take a few years to establish before we are ready to harvest our first crop. Look forward to fresh blueberries in the summer of 2023.
In September, we planted our first strawberry patch. 50,000 plants spanning 3.5 acres are now in the ground and thriving.
We are continuing to work on plans for our future plantings and expansions of the farm.
In May of 2022, the gates opened to the public for our first U-Pick strawberry season. This served as our "soft opening" of the farm, as we closed once the strawberry season ended in mid-June.
Please visit our FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) page for pricing and other U-Pick details.
We have many fun things in the works in the coming years and look forward to growing and offering something new each season.
We can not wait to welcome you all to experience Missouri Berries!
