Pick Your Own Strawberries

Pick Your Own Strawberries

The 2017 Pick-Your-Own Strawberry season is underway! We have an amazing crop of strawberries this year and the picking is excellent. Open daily at 8 am. Picking times will vary, but we expect the season to run into July. You are always welcome to call ahead for picking days and times. 651-257-9159.

Pleasant Valley Orchard offers three acres of mouth-watering strawberries for your picking enjoyment!

To plan your trip here are a few things to remember!

  1. You don’t need to worry about bringing containers! We provide them.
  2. Our fields are super clean. The straw mulch that protects the berries from the harsh Minnesota winters makes for minimal dirt, mud and weeds.
  3. Our staff is frantastic, friendly and helpful. When you arrive at the patch, our young team will show you where to pick and give you directions for the best picking experience. Please listen to them as they are there to help you!
  4. We’re not fancy. Just an awning, some tables, a couple of scales, and water available for sale if you need it.
  5. We take cash, checks or credit cards.
  6. We welcome families with young children, but be warned, we weigh them on their way in and out.
  7. We ask that you leave your pets at home. They don’t do well picking berries.
  8. The price this year for PYO is $2.40 a pound.
  9. Pre-picked berries are available, at $4.50 per quart. Please call ahead to order. We will call back to schedule a pickup time. 651-257-9159
  10. Our fields are clean, a slight breeze keeps bugs at a minimum and the berries are delightful.

If this is your first time to the patch, come to the main orchard parking area for directions to the strawberry patch.  The patch is located in our back fields. You will find directions with a map are in the black mail box attached to the Orchard sign.

A word about road construction on Pleasant Valley Rd. (Cty.26). If you are coming from Hwy.95 (Stillwater, Marine or Osceola, WI) follow the detour signs. They will bring you directly to the orchard. If you are coming from Lindstrom, Center City on Hwy. 8, Pleasant Valley Rd. (Cty. 26) is open all the way to the orchard.
