Thank You!

As we wrap up the 2012 berry season, we can look back on the past few weeks and be very thankful...

We are thankful for the bountiful harvest despite the wet weather at times.
We are thankful for the kids- big and little- who worked on the farm. 
We are thankful for the safety of everyone on the farm.
And we are thankful for all of YOU who came out to Haugen's Raspberry Farm this year.  We are thankful for our loyal customers who come year after year, and we are thankful for all of our new customers who hopefully we will see again next year.

Enjoy your berries and we will see you in 2013...
with another junior berry worker added to the crew!!

2012 Haugen Raspberry Olympics

The 2012 Haugen Raspberry Olympics are off to a great start!
The "Team Mericans" and "Team USA Girls" have been giving it their "berry" best!

So far the events have included, tossing a raspberry into one's own mouth, stacking a pallet of flats the fastest, balancing a flat on one's head, and the much anticipated "Flat Stack" event in which the competitors attempt to lift and transport the most amount of flats from one pallet to the another about 20 feet away.... this is the most physically challenging event of the Olympics!

Stay tuned to see what team wins the Gold!

Kids These Days

A lot can be said about kids these days...
Every day at the farm, customers comment what great kids we have working on the farm... and we agree!
Year after year we have been blessed with a great group of hardworking kids! 
They put in a lot of long hours during the summer working on the berry picker, handpicking berries,
 fixing posts, loading and unloading flats, driving the berry truck... the list goes on and on!
We really appreciate their great attitudes and efforts during the season... we couldn't do it without them!
This year's crew consists of
"Hillbilly Hunter", "Ben the Dragon Borne", "Kaitlyn the Beast" and "Big Luke"

When you come out to the farm and see these kids working,
you will leave with a smile on your face thinking about "kids these days".

** It's "Easy-Pickin" Week** The bushes are full of sweet, red raspberries!
Come and get some!!
