Due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, we will NOT be open for you-pick strawberries for 2020.
Even though we will not have you-pick strawberries, we will still have already picked berries available for purchase online at specified times throughout the week, with curbside pick up 24 hours later. Below you will find the schedule for ordering and pick up, as well as more information on our policies and procedures for this process.
As of today (May 24), strawberries are running a little behind schedule. We anticipate beginning online berry ordering sometime between June 15-20.
Ordering– All orders must be placed and paid for online through our online shop during the three specified ordering windows.
- Ordering Window #1 – Open from Sundays at 4 pm until Mondays at 8 am, or until all berries are sold out, whichever comes first. Berries ordered during this window will be available for curbside pickup at Firefly Berries on Monday from 4-7 pm.
- Ordering Window #2 – Open from Tuesdays at 4 pm until Wednesdays at 8 am, or until all berries are sold out, whichever comes first. Berries ordered during this window will be available for curbside pickup at Firefly Berries on Wednesday from 4-7 pm.
- Ordering Window #3 – Open from Friday 12 noon – 8 pm, or until all berries are sold out, whichever comes first. Berries ordered during this window will be available for pickup the next day, Saturday from 9 am – 12 noon.
**ORDERING TIP: We are currently working on a fix to a problem where some customers are seeing berries as “out of stock” even though the ordering window just opened. If you are having this issue, simply stay on the “fresh produce” page where all four items are listed. In the lower right hand corner of each item you will see a small shopping cart icon. Click on this icon and the item will be automatically added to your cart if it is in stock. From there you can proceed to checking out.
Important information/policies to note:
**Prepicked strawberries are available on a first come, first serve basis. It is highly likely that we will sell out of berries, so please set yourself a reminder to log in and place your order at the appropriate time.
2020 Online strawberry pricing
- $6 per quart (approximately 1 1/4 pounds)
- $20 for a 5 pound flat
- $35 for a 10 pound flat
**If a customer does not have access to the internet, he/she can contact us via phone (507-252-1309) and we can work with them to get them berries.
**Once the ordering window is closed, all customers will receive a confirmation email, confirming their order, as well as pickup directions and times.
**Customers MUST pick up their orders during the specified times for pick up. Customers who do not show up during the specified pick up time, and do not contact us to let us know of their extenuating circumstances, will be given a two hour grace period after the pickup time has ended. After that time, customer forfeits their strawberries. No refunds will be given for orders that do not follow this procedure.
**If a customer cannot pick up their order personally, he/she can send a friend or family member to pick up the order in their place.
**To protect our family and staff, we kindly ask all customers to wear a mask when they come to pick up their orders.
**When arriving to pick up your order, we ask all customers to stay in their cars. We will come to you and give you directions as to where we’d like you to park, etc. Customers are not allowed to exit their cars and walk around the farm.
**Customers are welcome to order additional Firefly Berries products, such as jam, juice, honey, yarn, etc. in our online shop and pick up at the same time as the fresh berries.
**At this time we are not certain if we will have you pick Concord grapes in the fall of 2020. We will update our information in late August when we know more about the status of Covid-19 in Minnesota at that time.
**If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us via phone (507-252-1309), email, or through our Facebook page. We are happy to help you through these new changes. We thank you for your patience and patronage during this uncertain and ever-changing time!
