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!
