Our 2024 strawberry season is officially over. Our next big harvest will be Concord grapes in September. Check back in August for hours.


Firefly Berries is a small, family-owned fruit farm located in Rochester, Minnesota. We specialize in prepicked strawberries, and both you pick & prepicked concord grapes. We also have our own naturally dyed yarn line, Berry Fun Yarns, dyed primarily with plants we grow on our farm. We are only open to the public during the months of September and October when we have fresh grapes available for customers to pick. If our June strawberry crop is plentiful enough, we will also offer you pick strawberries. From May through October you will find us most Saturdays from 7:30 am - 12 noon at the Rochester Farmers Market (located at the Olmsted County Fairgrounds) where we sell what is in season, be it strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, or concord grapes. And we always have naturally dyed yarn, raw honey, and jam with us as well! If you cannot make it to the farmers market, you can purchase our canned goods (for local pick up only) as well as our naturally dyed yarns (to be shipped anywhere) in our online shop. Click on the "shop" link at the top of this page to see our current offerings.

About Us

We are a small, family owned and run farm. We purchased the farm in 2010 and although we occasionally hire additional workers, the vast majority of labor is done by us and our four children.


We do not spray any chemicals anywhere on our farm. All weeding is done by hand except for the help of the hydroweeder.


In the beginning just the adults did the pruning, but the kids watched and learned. Today the kids are ages 11-20 and everyone helps with pruning.

Harvesting Strawberries

Our strawberries are harvested by us and sold as prepicked quarts and flats for our customers to enjoy. Strawberries can be purchased online for curbside pickup and at the Rochester Farmers Market.

Harvesting Concord Grapes

Concord grapes are available both as you pick and already picked flats. Check back in early September for more information on picking times and days.

Thank You

from our family to yours

Whether you visit the farm for grape picking or purchase berries online or at the Farmers Market, we thank you for your patronage.
