We're currently pruning our apple trees and looking forward to the spring rains.

You may have noticed the new format of the website.  We're in the process of adding new features, so look for those in the coming weeks.

Along with the website changes, we're switching away from using our @midiowa.net address to @berrypatchfarm.com.  Please contact us at info@berrypatchfarm.com.

The snow cover that we have will be a great protection for our strawberries. 
The cold temperatures are uncomfortable, but snow cover and many tons of straw keep the plants from harm.

We're often asked about our winter activities:
  • applying mulch on the berries
  • covering winter tender plants, greenhouse crops and attending the wood fired boiler for the greenhouse
  • grower conferences
  • pruning apples and blueberries.
