FARM BIO

Grunthal Berries began in 2009. The farmers, Colleen and Mark, had been working in the big city and needed a creative outlet. So, they returned to Colleen's hometown and planted 5 acres of strawberries! (They had quite a steep learning curve, having no real experience in large scale gardening!)

The farm specializes in having a long picking season for strawberries (certain strawberry varieties produce in summer and fall!), but the farm also grows some raspberries, watermelon and the occasional fresh vegetables, such as cucumbers, squash and pumpkin. The farm uses its own fruit to produce very delicious strawberry jam...
