Cultural practices are used for weed control such as cultivation when possible and also hand weeding. We monitor our fields at least twice a week looking for any pest problems. Pesticides are used only when damaging levels of pests are present. It is our policy to apply nothing when we have developing fruit on the plants. We are not a chemical free farm but we try to use them as little as possible.
The Berry Farmer is a family owned and operated business located approximately 2 1/4 miles west of Baraboo, Wisconsin. Established in 1998, our farm has grown to 10 acres of pick your own and pre picked strawberries. 1 1/2 acres of pick your own and pre picked peas and 1 1/3 acres of pick your own blueberries.
Our goal is to produce the best quality fruits and vegetables that we can. With that in mind, we use Best Management Practices in our farming operation. This starts with selecting healthy root stock from a trusted nursery. Our fruit varieties are chosen because they have natural resistance to certain pests and diseases.
