We just finished a remarkable season of collecting chokecherries for our wild chokecherry jelly & syrups. In just 11 days from our first berry purchase, we were able to meet quota, just like that! Our warehouse was mad busy. It has been a real bumper year for wild fruits. We are excited to see what the harvesters bring us for plums, grapes & highbush cranberries. Hopefully, everyone is out there having a good time & remembering to be mindful of your neighbors & the animals when harvesting fruits. We need to save some for the long over winter which isn’t too far away. Birds, squirrels, deer & bears use these same fruits to add to their stash so they can survive the harsh winters we all know & love in northern Minnesota. We spent a moment thanking the Creator for offering such great abundance. We also thank the wonderful families that took their children out & educated them on harvesting wild fruit. You are touching your ancestors when you practice these traditions. There is nothing better than seeing a whole family out there, helping each other out & bringing us the fruits of your labor. We know its hard work. That’s why we ask that you CALL us at 1-888-225-2108 to be certain that we need more fruit and your hard work doesn’t go to waste. That last sentence was completely silly. How could having a few pounds of fresh indigenous wild fruit on your hands ever be considered a waste? You can make your own jelly, syrup or even share it with friends & family. Be creative. Stay positive! Happy Harvest to everyone! We can do this together. Miigwech!
